upon completion of their distribution contract in 2012, Paramount announced the formation of a new division, devoted to the creation of animated productions.[3] It marks Paramount's return to having its own animated division for the first time since 1967, when Paramount Cartoon Studios shut down (it was formerly Famous Studios

until 1956). In October 2011, Paramount named a former president of Walt Disney Feature Animation, David Stainton, president of Paramount Animation.[5] In February 2012, Stainton resigned for personal reasons, with Paramount Film Group's president, Adam Goodman, stepping in to directly oversee the studio.[6] It was also announced that The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, a standalone sequel to 2004's The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie
The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie
and based upon the popular Nickelodeon TV show, SpongeBob SquarePants, is the studio's first film and was released on February 6, 2015.[4] In August 2012, in the same month that DreamWorks Animation

20th Century Fox
as distributor beginning in 2013,[7] Variety reported that Paramount Animation
Animation
was in the process of starting development of several animated films with budgets of around US$100 million.[8] Process[edit] The studio relies on other animation studios and visual effect companies to provide the animation on their films, with the main studio only having about 10 employees working there.[2] This includes Nickelodeon
