I'm pretty mixed about the idea of a third movie. Of course I'll watch it when it comes out and hopefully it will be great, or even better. But at this point, it seems like they just make it to earn money instead of making it for dedication. I may have liked the first 2 movies, but even if the third one is good or better, I don't really think it's a good idea to have another one so early. What if it will be hated even more than SOOW? Ugh, I don't even want to think about it ._.

Welcome to the movie industry nowadays...why not make it a TV movie or straight to DVD? Then it wouldn't matter how good it is.

In my opinion, it's to soon, SOOW is just sinking into some of the fanatics of SBSP. And for someone to immediately announce another movie is...weird. I mean sure, Star Wars, Hunger Games, etc. announce them, but they are PLANNED trilogies, the Spongebob movies haven't showed any relevance to each other, and showing no continuation of anything (but all SpongeBob is like that), and the third move just seems, rushed. And it's obvious that Viacom wants money. The other problem is, what if SpongeBob ends after Season 10? Are they going to make another 3-4 year season just to make the movie popular? I'm very skeptical, especially due to the fact I'll be a freshman in college when this comes out, so I doubt I'll see it.

I'm not entirely sure how i feel about this, i felt this would work as straight to DVD than just being in theaters. Otherwise, we'll see.

I'm worried that this is going to be a direct sequel to SOOW, which I REALLY don't want. I would rather (since they just HAVE to make a 3rd movie) they made this it's own thing separate from both of the first two movies. And PLEASE no more super heroes, talking seagulls, or rap battles for crying out loud!!!!!!

I'm honestly not too optimistic about this but I'll have to wait and see how it turns out.

I wonder how it will do at the box office. I think releasing it in February again is a good idea, as it shouldn't have too much competition. Though, Captain Marvel is released a month later.

Dont worry, I'm not.....that guy. I'm saying since they didn't want SOOW to have any connection with the first movie, then this one should be its own thing too. A direct sequel to SOOW most likely wouldn't work, and a direct sequel to the first movie isn't going to happen.
