Paramount+ has announced that preschool favorite characters from the Daytime Emmy Award-nominated show Baby Shark’s Big Show will be hitting the big screen next year in Baby Shark’s Big Movie! (working title).
The globally beloved preschool show launched globally last year across Nickelodeon branded channels and platforms, and a second season is soon to be on its way. In fact, it is the #1 ranked preschool series among all TV in the US this year. So it is no surprise that Baby Shark is getting a big screen debut. Unfortunately for its tiny (and not so tiny) fans, Baby Shark’s Big Movie isn’t set to premiere until the 2023 holiday season.
Co-produced by Nickelodeon Animation and The Pinkfong Company with Emmy winner Alan Foremane (The Casagrandes, Welcome to the Wayne), the movie is set to follow Baby Shark and his family as they move to Chomp City. According to the official summary,
In BABY SHARK’S BIG MOVIE!, Baby Shark is forced to leave the world he loves behind after his family’s move to the big city, and must adjust to his new life without his best friend, William. When Baby Shark encounters an evil pop starfish named Stariana who plans to steal his gift of song in order to dominate all underwater music, he must break her spell to restore harmony to the seas.
Taking off from the events of Baby Shark’s Big Show, the movie should be exactly the holiday fun that preschool parents are looking for. Plus, the show, and we hope the movie, features voice acting talents including Kimiko Glenn (“Orange Is the New Black”) as Baby Shark, Luke Youngblood (“Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”) as William, Natasha Rothwell (“Insecure”) as Mommy Shark, Eric Edelstein (“We Bare Bears”) as Daddy Shark, Debra Wilson (“MADtv”) as Grandma Shark, and Patrick Warburton (“Seinfeld”) as Grandpa Shark. So be sure to brush up on all things Baby Shark before the movie releases next year.
