The movie will also be released by Paramount Home Entertainment for Premium Video-On-Demand (PVOD) on the same day, so tiny viewers without Paramount+ can watch the new adventure.
The movie’s description reads, “SpongeBob SquarePants, his best friend Patrick, and the Bikini Bottom gang star in their most epic adventure movie yet! When SpongeBob’s beloved pet snail Gary goes missing, a path of clues leads SpongeBob and Patrick to the powerful King Poseidon, who has Gary held captive in the Lost City of Atlantic City. On their mission to save Gary, SpongeBob and his pals team up for a heroic and hilarious journey where they discover nothing is stronger than the power of friendship.”

The first six episodes of “Kamp Koral” will be available to stream beginning March 4th exclusively on Paramount+ for subscribers in the U.S. The rest of the season’s 13-episode order will roll out on the platform at later dates to be announced.
In “Kamp Koral,” the CG-animated prequel series follows 10-year-old SpongeBob SquarePants and his pals during summer sleepaway camp.

The series features Tom Kenny (SpongeBob), Bill Fagerbakke (Patrick), Rodger Bumpass (Squidward), Clancy Brown (Mr. Krabs), Carolyn Lawrence (Sandy), and Mr. Lawrence (Plankton) reprising their iconic roles. Carlos Alazraqui and Kate Higgins join as new characters Nobby and Narlene, narwhal siblings who live in the woods surrounding the camp.
Marc Ceccarelli, Vincent Waller, and Jennie Monica are co-executive producers of the series. Production is overseen by Kelley Gardner, Vice President, Current Series Animation, Nickelodeon. The series is produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank, California.
