Paramount+ Is Finally Here!
Spongebob has a new home, and he's not alone. The streaming service formerly known as CBS All Access has now become Paramount+, which launched today.
That means there's no shortage of content for the service and no shortage of what you're missing out on!
Sponge on the Run
As part of the debut, Paramount is launching the brand new movie Sponge on the Run, where Gary gets snailnapped!
We sat down with the star of the movie and the iconic voice of none other than Mr Squarepants himself, Tom Kenny.
"It's a snailnapping, but it kind of puts into motion a road movie, where they have to go and get this snail that's very near and dear to Spongebob's heart back. And Patrick, you know is always there for him, his pal" said Kenny of the upcoming film.
We were also graced with the opportunity to speak with Bill Fagerbakke, who voices Patrick Star. Please keep in mind the following quote was delivered in Patrick's voice:
"There's some pretty exciting people in there, that, they, they do movies and they do music, and they dance around and stuff like that. And there's all kinds of, you know, funny people, and, oh you'll be so excited" said Fagerbakke of the guest stars in the film, which include Keanu Reeves and Snoop Dogg.
Some Exciting Voices
Also among the guest stars is Late Late Show bandleader Reggie Watts, who took a break from James Corden to talk with Celebrity Page.
"When I got offered the part I did a crash course and just sat down with my friend. We went through all her favorite episodes, and I was like wow, this is insane. I'm so glad I get to be a part of it"
In more exciting news for Spongebob fans, a new spinoff of the show Kamp Koral is making its debut on the platform today, which covers the childhood of the beloved cartoon character. Rodger Bumpass, Carolyn Lawrence, and Clancy Brown, who provide the voices of Squidward, Sandy, and Mr. Krabs, respectively, talked about the new show with us!
"It's a very nice, refreshing take on all of our characters that we're all familiar with. In addition to being a little younger, you also learn how they got to be where they are" said Bumpass.
"Well shoot", Lawrence said in character, "it's just the best, it's the bee's knees, it's the best thing ever! So, get Paramount+, you're going to be able to stream everything your family wants and more, On Demand, you just click, and it's all there. It's magic"
"Mi Bikini Bottom es su Bikini Bottom" Brown said in the voice of Eugene Krabs, "and no refunds!"
