Nickelodeon is now taking the land deeper on TV with SpongBob SquarePants Prequel
The world of SpongeBob SquarePants is about to get a whole lot larger. The ever-successful series has been a staple for Nickelodeon for decades now, and the community is finally looking to expand on its small screen success. There have been SpongeBob films previously, but Nickelodeon is now taking the land deeper on TV, ordering a brand new prequel series of SpongeBob SquarePants that will focus on the earlier years of their titular character.
“SpongeBob has an unbelievable universe to enlarge upon and the green light for Kamp Koral is a testament to the strength and longevity of the characters known and loved by countless fans around the globe,” explained Ramsey Naito, Nickelodeon’s EVP Animation Production and Development.
SpongeBob SquarePants will soon be celebrating its 20th anniversary on Nickelodeon.
10-year-old SpongeBob and his friends will spend the series doing all sorts of activities, like building underwater campfires, catching jellyfish, and swimming in Lake Yuck Yuck. Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller are put to co-executive create the collection. Next month, SpongeBob SquarePants will soon be celebrating its 20th anniversary on Nickelodeon, dubbed the Greatest Year Ever by the series. The tribute to the iconic animation will culminate in a one-hour special, SpongeBob’s Large Birthday Blowout, which will premiere on Friday, July 12th.
The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.
Another massive first for SpongeBob: This series will probably be wholly CG-animated, giving it a 3D texture, unlike the classic 2D animation of the original show. The CG-animation was previously used at 2015’s feature-length movie, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water. On Tuesday, Deadline disclosed that Nickelodeon had ordered a 13-episode series order to Kamp Koral (working name ), a SpongeBob SquarePants spinoff. The show follows a 10-year-old variant of SpongeBob that is spending his summer in a sleepaway camp. A third SpongeBob film, The SpongeBob Movie: It’s an excellent Sponge, is set to arrive in theaters in 2020.
