On January last year, it was confirmed that production on The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run had officially commenced. As the world is severely affected by the coronavirus pandemic, the production had been temporarily stopped like other movie and television projects.

Plankton, Jill Talley as Karen Plankton, Carolyn Lawrence as Sandy Cheeks, Mary Jo Catlett as Mrs. Puff, Lori Alan as Pearl Krabs to name a few.
Additionally, Snoop Dogg, Keanu Reeves, Awkwafina and Reggie Watts have been cast in undisclosed roles. The film got its first teaser poster at the San Diego Comic Con on July 19, 2019 with the original title 'It's a Wonderful Sponge'. A second teaser poster was released on November 12, 2019 with a new title. The first trailer was released two days later.
The plot for the imminent animated adventure comedy movie is yet to be released. However, fans will be seeing SpongeBob and Patrick embarking on a rescue mission to save Gary, who has been 'snailnapped' by Poseidon, traveling to the Lost City of Atlantic City.
