During his new film. Spongebob Squarepants will pop out of his flat, undersea dominion and become a fully 3D visitor to our live action world. Judging from the first poster, he’s going to look pretty groovy while he’s doing it.
I believe the underwater scenes will have the traditional look.
Here are some storyboard images from the film, found via Film Divider‘s post on the film. These were apparently drawn up by Chris Reccardi, a long-time storyboard artist on a lot of animation projects.
Sponge Out of Water 3D is out in the UK and US next February, gunning for the success that release date seemed to bring for The Lego Movie.
