The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run
Nickelodeon's big screen SpongeBob adventure will instead debut at home, available to rent on demand before Sponge on the Run streams exclusively on CBS All Access in early 2021 alongside the entire series of SpongeBob SquarePants.
"We're happy to give kids and families a much-deserved lift in any way we can, and the PVOD release of the new SpongeBob theatrical and putting all seasons of the TV series on CBS All Access are two of the best ways I can think of to get immersed in the optimism and joy that this terrific character represents," said Nickelodeon's Ramsey Naito.
