The last Spongebob movie, Sponge Out of Water came out back in 2015, but now Paramount and Nickelodeon have released their trailer for the next Spongebob movie, Sponge on the Run.

Here's the official synopsis:

This Memorial Day weekend, SpongeBob SquarePants, his best friend Patrick Star and the rest of the gang from Bikini Bottom hit the big screen in the first-ever all CGI SpongeBob motion picture event. After SpongeBob's beloved pet snail Gary is snail-napped, he and Patrick embark on an epic adventure to The Lost City of Atlantic City to bring Gary home. As they navigate the delights and dangers on this perilous and hilarious rescue mission, SpongeBob and his pals prove there's nothing stronger than the power of friendship.


As you can see, the film has seemingly dropped the original 2D format of the regular show to embrace a fully 3D look. The trailer has also revealed one major celebrity cameo in the form of Keanu Reeves. Based on who we've seen in the SpongeBob films before, I have a feeling Reeves is only at the tip of the cameo iceberg.

What's also interesting is the film is going to flash us back to Spongebob's days in Kamp Koral. Just in case you didn't know, Nickelodeon is working on a spinoff of Spongebob called Kamp Koral, and it will feature this animation style, following the adventures of a young Spongebob and pals.

For now, The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run is set to come out in May of 2020.
