Oh, who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Not SpongeBob SquarePants any longer, who’s venturing out from his underwater home for a land-bound adventure. The latest trailer for SpongeBob SquarePants: Sponge Out Of Water sees the titular sponge and his friends leave the ocean in search of an evil pirate chef played by Antonio Banderas. While the first trailer implied the major MacGuffin would be a magical book, this trailer centers its plot machinations on a more familiar object of desire: the Krabby Patty.

After Banderas steals their precious burgers, SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Sandy, and Mr. Krabs follow him to the human world where they develop superpowers and steal inking jokes from Finding Nemo. In keeping with the tradition of the TV show, the creatures become 3-D when they leave the sea. But while the show depicted them as literal sponges and starfish, the film renders its characters in horrifyingly detailed CGI. The film hits theaters February 6, 2015.
