Are ya ready kids?
Well, these new projects will have you saying, “Aye aye captain!” On Feb. 15, Paramount+ announced new upcoming Nickelodeon projects from beloved childhood shows, including Dora the Explorer, Spongebob SquarePants, Blue’s Clues and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Starting off with the sponge that lives in a pineapple under the sea, three brand-new SpongeBob SquarePants movies—based on the show’s original characters—are coming to the streamer with the first one dropping in 2023. Paramount+ also noted that a fourth SpongeBob release is currently in development for theatrical release.
But Dora isn’t going to let SpongeBob swipe the spotlight. In addition to an all-new CG-animated series for preschoolers, the first-ever live-action Dora the Explorer series is in development for teens and tweens—which was inspired by Paramount Pictures’ 2019 film, Dora and the Lost City of Gold.
