The young conservationist commented on his involvement in the film: “I was so excited to be asked to play the role of Kyle because he’s such a fun, cute little character who always has something positive to say. SpongeBob is really great at getting kids excited to learn about all things under the sea in a really fun way so it’s great to be a part of the film and help spread his message of positivity. I can’t wait to see the film!”
