More than two years after its originally scheduled premiere date, “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run” is now available to stream on Paramount Plus.

The film is an entirely 3D-animated adventure featuring your favorites from Bikini Bottom. It follows SpongeBob as he’s set on a path to recover his lost pet Gary the Snail. After Gary goes missing in Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob – along with his starfish friend Patrick – discover that Gary is in the clutches of King Poseidon at the Lost City of Atlantic City.

Voice actors from the “SpongeBob” cartoon, like Tom Kenny, return to voice their iconic characters, while new stars, like actress and comedian Awkwafina, also join the cast.

The film was originally set to debut in theaters in February 2019, but the movie’s US premiere was delayed several times due to the pandemic. The movie did end up playing in Canadian theaters in August 2020 and internationally through Netflix in November 2020.

The March 4 streaming premiere marks the first time “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run” is available in the US. Here’s how you can watch it now on Paramount Plus.

How to watch ‘The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run’

“The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run” is now available on Paramount Plus. To watch the film, you’ll need a Paramount Plus limited-commercial or commercial-free plan.

The Paramount Plus limited-commercial plan currently costs $6 a month or $60 a year. The commercial-free plan is $10 a month or $100 per year. 

Starting in June, Paramount Plus will replace the current limited-commercial option with a cheaper plan for $5 a month. Unlike current options, however, the updated plan will not include live CBS streaming. 

The new “SpongeBob” movie premiered on Paramount Plus alongside a new “SpongeBob” prequel series, “Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years.” The show follows a young SpongeBob and other Bikini Bottom favorites as they live life at a summer camp.

Outside of “SpongeBob,” Paramount Plus boasts a catalog of over 2,500 movies and 30,000 TV episodes. New original shows are in the works, including a “Halo” series and an “iCarly” reboot. There’s also live sports you can watch, including soccer and NFL games.
