Well this looks fun, I guess:
The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water will be released in the U.S. on Feb. 6, 2015, but that trailer is already out.
I don’t know how I feel about the mix of animation styles, but, as I’ve said before, I love the bright, cheery beach town look of Broughton Street in some of those shots. The buildings and streetscapes were altered so much by painting and production design that they appear to have been changed little via special effects. So the whole movie seems a little more “realistic” than I expected, despite SpongeBob SquarePants and his compatriots romping around and apparently saving the world.
Last year, I posted a gallery of Broughton Street when it was decked out as the beach town Salty Shoals.
I’ll repost that gallery here:
