After missing its theatrical release last year, the latest SpongeBob movie is set to premiere on Paramount Plus in the U.S. and we have all the details on how you can stream Sponge on the Run online.
The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run is the second film set in Bikini Bottom and unlike 2004's The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, it is the first-ever all CGI SpongeBob motion picture event. In addition to SpongeBob, Patrick Star, Squidward, Sandy, Plankton, Mr. Krabs and Gary the snail, the new film also features acting from Keanu Reeves, Snoop Dogg and Danny Trejo along with voice acting from Matt Berry, Awkwafina, Tiffany Haddish and Reggie Watts.
Sponge on the Run starts out in Bikini Bottom with SpongeBob and Patrick's usual shenanigans. When Plankton once again tries to steal the recipe for Mr. Krabs' famous Krabby Patty, he realizes that SpongeBob has always been the one to stop him so instead he decides to 'snailnap' Gary. After realizing that his best friend Gary is nowhere to be found, SpongeBob and Patrick set off on an adventure to rescue him from the Lost City of Atlantic City. Along the way, the two encounter Keanu Reeves who plays the role of a tumbleweed named Sage and serves as their spiritual guide.
The new film also aims to give viewers a bit more insight into how SpongeBob and the other residents of Bikini Bottom met for the first time.
Whether you've been watching SpongeBob SquarePants since the show first premiered on Nickelodeon back in 1999 or just want to see Bikini Bottom in CGI for the first time, we'll show you how to watch The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run from anywhere in the world.

We have all the details on how you can watch Sponge on the Run in the U.S., Canada, the UK and Australia further down in this guide. However, if you want to watch the latest SpongeBob movie when you're away from home, then you'll run into problems as your domestic coverage online from abroad will likely be geo-blocked.

How to watch Sponge on the Run in the U.S. exclusively on Paramount Plus
SpongeBob fans in the US will be able to watch Sponge on the Run when it premieres on Paramount's streaming service Paramount Plus on Thursday, March 5.
Rather than being an entirely new streaming service, Paramount Plus is a rebranded and updated version of CBS All Access. The studio's parent company ViacomCBS decided to combine CBS All Access with even more of its content to create Paramount Plus which launches the same day as The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run premieres. If you've already signed up for a premium CBS All Access plan, then your account should automatically roll into Paramount Plus. If not though, Paramount Plus costs $4.99 per month with limited commercials or $9.99 per month with no commercials whatsoever. You can also sign up for an annual plan to cut a little of the total cost of your subscription.
Get a Sponge on the Run livestream in Canada
Canadian viewers are in luck as Paramount Plus will also be available up north on the same day as it launches in the U.S. This means that you can sign up with the streaming service to watch Sponge on the Run beginning on Thursday, March 5.
Stream Sponge on the Run in the UK and Australia
If you live in the UK, Australia or anywhere else in Europe for that matter, you can already stream Sponge on the Run online as the latest SpongeBob movie came to Netflix back in November of last year.
