Washington D.C. [USA], July 16 (ANI): Video streaming platform Netflix has acquired the international distribution rights for the latest 'SpongeBob' film from Viacom, sources told to Variety.
The platform grabbed the foreign rights for 'SpongeBob: Sponge on the Run,' the twice-delayed Paramount Animation title from Viacom.
'SpongeBob: Sponge on the Run' is an upcoming American animated comedy movie, whose theatrical releases has been on hold owing to the coronavirus pandemic.
