Paramount Pushes 'The SpongeBob Movie: Search for SquarePants' Release Date To Dec. 19, 2025

Paramount has shifted the release date for the upcoming SpongeBob SquarePants theatrical movie, The SpongeBob Movie: Search for SquarePants, from its Friday, May 23, 2025 release date, and will now release the film in theaters on Friday, December 19, 2025 during the holiday season.

Previously set to open during 2025's Memorial Day Weekend, the The SpongeBob Movie: Search for SquarePants was originally planned to serve as the culmination of Nickelodeon's year-long celebration marking 25 years of the network's beloved animated series, which begins next year.

On its new date, SpongeBob will bump heads with Avatar 3 and an untitled Warner Bros. movie.

Deadline reports that the delay is due to the on-going SAG-AFTRA strike. In addition to Search for SquarePants, Paramount has given new release dates for a slew of new movies, including: Mission Impossible 8 ne Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two, which moves from June 28, 2024 next year to May 23, 2025 Memorial Day, effectively taking SpongeBob's spot; A Quiet Place: Day One is now opening on June 28, 2024 with Imax screens having moved from March 8, 2024; and IF is moving up a week to May 17 next year instead of May 24.

Details for The SpongeBob Movie: Search for SquarePants are scarce, but it's being reported that the film will yet again be a live-action/animation hybrid, and the film will go to the deepest depths of the ocean where SpongeBob will face off against the notorious Flying Dutchman, who proves to be anything but a friendly ghost. The film is being directed by the show’s longtime writer Derek Drymon.

The SpongeBob Movie: Search for SquarePants is one of four upcoming new movies based on Nickelodeon's beloved animated series, which includes Saving Bikini Bottom: The Sandy Cheeks Movie, which is slated to debut on Netflix in 2024.
