The trailer for Saving Bikini Bottom: The Sandy Cheeks Movie is here. This trailer brings us a whole new kind of SpongeBob SquarePants Adventure. A bit of live action, a bit of chaos on the surface – what could be better than that?

A press release states: “When Bikini Bottom and all its residents are suddenly fished out of the sea, Sandy Cheeks and SpongeBob SquarePants travel to Texas to save the town from a malicious conspiracy.“Sandy Cheeks is one (flying) squirrel not to be messed with. Frankly, we are all in when it comes to this movie with Sandy Cheeks as the star.

Saving Bikini Bottom: The Sandy Cheeks Movie will be released on August 2nd.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire will be released on July 4th. The monster movie will be streamed on Max.

We are also very excited to announce that an American Sign Language (ASL) version of the film will also be streaming exclusively on Max on the same day. Max says, “This ASL version of the film was produced exclusively for Max, with ASL actor Otis Jones (Deaf West Theatre) providing the interpretation. Jones was coached by Leila Hanaumi, who gave a highly acclaimed performance in Barbie with ASL last December, Max’s first ASL film interpretation. GODZILLA X KONG: THE NEW EMPIRE in ASL will appear as a unique title in the Max app and will be identified by its key image with the sign language symbol.” We strongly applaud Max for this effort to be as inclusive as possible in their programming!

The young

The young Showrunner Eric Kripke promises that, unlike in the comics, Black Noir will not be a Homelander clone.

He says diversity:

No, and I like saying that too. In the comics, he’s a clone of Homelander all the time and actually the one who does all these horrible things. And again, it’s a hell of a twist. But it’s like, well, wait a minute, the villain I’ve been following isn’t actually the villain. And the trajectory varies, and I’m sure fans are mad that I’m not going in that direction, but that wasn’t as satisfying for me. I figured if I’m going to follow this villain, I want this guy to be the villain. So I was never really into the clone idea.

Also, cloning feels too – I’m going to sound silly now – but cloning feels too magical for the show. We’re trying to say that superheroes are the only tricky thing and that we’re keeping everything else as grounded as possible.
