Bob’s Burgers is coming to the big screen!
20th Century Fox confirmed with Deadline that right now the film has a July 17th, 2020 release date set.
Bob’s Burgers is an Emmy Winning animated series that follows the Belcher family, Bob, Linda and children Tina, Gene and Louise. The family runs a burger restaurant and are known for their silly antics and bright and unique personalities.
The show’s creator Loren Bouchard expressed his excitement for the film.
“We’re thrilled to be invited to bring Bob’s Burgers to the big screen. 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 series has been running on fox since 2011, and so it’s fitting that Fox animation will produce the film.
Twentieth Century Fox Film Chairman and CEO Stacey Snider says they are grateful for the team to let them run with their idea.
“A Bob’s Burgers film fits perfectly with our initiative to redouble our family and animation efforts. We’re grateful to 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.”
What a year for Bob’s Burgers indeed!
