The movie Spongebob Squarepants: The Sponge on the Run is heading to Netflix in international markets and fans in the US are a bit confused. For those unaware, Paramount and Nickelodeon have announced that the latest SpongeBob SquarePants movie will be heading to the closest Netflix territory except China and the United States this year. This all comes after the company announced that Sponge on the run had been pushed back to 2021 in America. 2021 is still months away, and such a gap would invite some very desperate fans to cross waters to watch the film with their families. But, the distributor thinks the fan base will be able to wait a while to see the incredibly animated feature film. COVID-19 shook up the entertainment industry this year, and Spongebob was just one of many movies that got pushed back, but unlike other high-profile releases, animated movies take a long look at the treatment. on demand .

“We’re thrilled to have The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run, a first-run movie from one of ViacomCBS’s biggest brands, join CBS All Access’ growing list of franchise content from ViacomCBS,” Marc DeBevoise , Chief Digital Officer at ViacomCBS and President and CEO of ViacomCBS Digital told media last month. “This launch will be perfectly timed with our continued expansion and planned rebranding of the service in early 2021, as we welcome SpongeBob and the Bikini Bottom gang to the service in the biggest way possible.”
“We’re incredibly excited to give kids and families a much-needed lift in every way we can, and the PVOD release of the new SpongeBob Theater and streaming all seasons of the TV series on CBS All Access are two of the best ways which I can think of immersing myself in the optimism and joy that this tremendous character represents,” added Ramsey Naito, executive vice president of Nickelodeon Animation Production and Development.

And here it’s going to be released on CBS All Access, which, let’s face it, is a streaming service that not many people have.
Of course, “Sponge on the Run” can be a huge push for CBS All Access, and that can lead to a huge push.
Will it be, however?

I can’t wait for this movie to come out, from everything I’ve seen in the trailers it sounds like a love letter to the show.
