FOX’s Emmy-winning Bob’s Burgers will become a major motion picture.
Twentieth Century Fox announced it’ll release the Bob’s Burgers movie on July 17, 2020.
“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?!”
The animated series, on FOX since 2011, centers around the Belcher family-operated burger joint in a seaside town, voiced by H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schaal.
“A Bob’s Burgers film fits perfectly with our initiative to redouble our family and animation efforts,” said Twentieth Century Fox Film chairman and CEO Stacey Snider. “We’re grateful to [Fox Television Group chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden] for trusting us with this beloved property and we’re so excited to be working with Loren and his team.”
Last year, the cast made a short film about making a movie. Sort of. Enjoy!
