FOX has announced that a Bob’s Burgers feature film will be released July 17th, 2020. However, no information about the plot has been revealed as of this time.
“We’re thrilled to be invited to bring Bob’s Burgers to the big screen,” show creator Loren Bouchard said. “We know the movie has to scratch every itch the fans of the show have ever had, but it also has to work for all the good people who’ve never seen the show. We also know it has to fill every inch of the screen with the colors and the sounds and the ever so slightly greasy texture of the world of Bob’s – but most of all it has to take our characters on an epic adventure. In other words, it has to be the best movie ever made. But no pressure, right?!”
From Bouchard (Home Movies), Bob’s Burgers follows the Belchers, a coastal family of five who own and operate a burger restaurant. The series, debuting midseason 2011, has won two Emmys for Outstanding Animated Program and become a solid syndication performer. It’s the third current FOX animated comedy to receive the film treatment following the Family Guy straight-to-DVD film Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story and 2007’s The Simpsons Movie, which grossed half a billion dollars.
Bob’s Burgers airs Sundays at 7:30 on FOX.
