The opening of the The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run movie has a narrator that seems to be joking with a David Attenborough voice.

Did they inquire if the real David Attenborough could have done the narration? If so, what was his answer?


This isn't an authoritative answer, but I highly doubt it.

The show's regular narrator, known only as "French Narrator", is an homage to marine biologist and documentary filmmaker Jacques-Yves Cousteau, one of Hillenburg's inspirations. I expect that the narrator from Sponge on the Run was similarly intended to be an homage to Attenborough, another man famous for wildlife documentaries. Getting the real Attenborough to voice him would defeat the purpose of paying homage to him.
