The Spongebob Squarepants Movie happened to our eyeballs a full 10 years ago. Now here's a sequel with an even longer name.
The Spongebob Squaremants Movie: Sponge Out of Water has more sponges, more pants and more spongepanted antics than you can shake some kind of stick at. The plot sees an evil pirate (Antonio Banderas) out to steal a magical page from the under the sea boys. Then Spongebob has to get it back.
That means we're kicking off with some regular 2D animation until the guys head to a live action world and become awesome 3D and CG creations! Here's the first trailer.
The first Spongebob movie did decent but unspectacular business around the world so this does seem to still be one for fans. At least they're holding onto the oddball humour but there are few enough really solid laughs in this promo. Hopefully we'll see more soon.
The Spongebob Squarepants Movie: Sponge Out of Water is in cinemas in February 2015.
