Paramount Preps Another 'SpongeBob SquarePants' Movie for 2014

SpongeBob SquarePants

It's been eight years since Nickelodeon's Pineapple dwelling cash cow SpongeBob SquarePants hit the big screen, but after Paramount Pictures (the studio under Viacom, which also owns the aforementioned kid cable network) rocked the Oscars by winning Best Animated Film for Rango, it sounds like they're eager to keep their animation sector going strong. THR has word from CEO Philippe Dauman that a new movie featuring SpongeBob, Patrick, Gary and the rest of the crew is heading to theaters by the end of 2014. Dauman says the film will, "serve to start off or be one of our films that starts off our new animation effort."

As of now there are no plot details, but when it comes to someone as established as SpongeBob SquarePants, it's really not necessary to get audiences interested. However, with eight years having gone by, I'm wondering if the kid audience for the cartoon is still as strong as it was back then. Many of the kids who watched the show and film back then are now in high school and college. While nostalgia is strong nowadays, it may not make as big of a splash this time around. Of course, since the cartoon does have subtle adult humor and still gives laughs to plenty stoners out there, there's probably nothing to worry about.

    As a kid who was the generation that ate, drank, and slept Spongebob Squarepants I have to say, now I don't really care, I probably would need to go back and watch those old episodes of Spongebob just because I haven't seen them in so long, and the movie was 8 years ago, I'm sure if they do it 2 or maybe even 4 years after, it would have been a huge success. But as i said I don't care too much, but I would like to see how it goes and hope it does rekindle my love for spongebob

    Oh God no. NO. ANOTHER movie? Look, I love the series, mainly back when it was good during the first three seasons and not now when it's gone downhill. The first movie was outstanding and hilarious, but after the original crew left the team, the series went horribly wrong.
