‘Baby Shark’s Big Movie!’ Rides the Tides to a Holiday 2023 Release on Paramount+

Paramount+ today announced Baby Shark’s Big Movie! (working title), the first-ever feature-length original animated film based on the globally beloved preschool property, is set to premiere holiday 2023 in the U.S.

Co-produced by Nickelodeon Animation and The Pinkfong Company and directed by Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Award winner Alan Foreman (The Casagrandes, Welcome to the Wayne), the movie will follow Baby Shark and his family as they move to Chomp City, the big city of sharks.

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.

The Daytime Emmy Award-nominated hit preschool series Baby Shark’s Big Show! launched globally in 2021 across Nickelodeon branded channels and platforms and was recently picked up for a second season. The show ranks as the #1 preschool series on all TV in the U.S. for 2Q22.

With music, characters, story and dance all combined together, the song certified RIAA Diamond and 11x platinum single for selling over 11 million units in the U.S., and spawned a viral phenomenon, #BabySharkChallenge, generating over 1 million cover videos around the globe.
