Paramount Animation has set the third “SpongeBob Squarepants” movie for 2019 and delayed its “Monster Trucks” film until 2017.

“Monster Trucks” will open Jan. 13, 2017. The film is a hybrid of live action and CGI animation directed by Chris Wedge. The cast includes Jane Levy, Lucas Till, Tom Lennon, Barry Pepper, Amy Ryan, Danny Glover, Holt McCallany and Frank Whaley.

“SpongeBob Squarepants 3” will open Feb. 8, 2019. Director Paul Tibbitt will return with the voices of Tom Kenny, Clancy Brown, Rodger Bumpass, Bill Fagerbakke, Carolyn Lawrence and Mr. Lawrence. The last “SpongeBob” pic, this year’s “Sponge Out of Water,” grossed $315 million worldwide.

“Amusement Park” will open March 22, 2019, with Dylan Brown directing. He was supervising animator on “Finding Nemo” and directing animator on “Toy Story.” The film stars the voices Matthew Broderick, Jennifer Garner, Jeffrey Tambor, Kenan Thompson, Ken Jeong, Mila Kunis and John Oliver.
