Bob’s Burgers is making its way to the big screens. 20th Century Fox announced that Bob’s Burgers movie is scheduled for release on July 17, 2020, with series creator Loren Bouchard on board.
“We’re thrilled to be invited to bring Bob’s Burgers to the big screen,” said Bouchard about the project. “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?!”
Bob’s Burgers originally premiered on Fox in 2011 and follows the Belcher family (parents Bob and Linda, and their children Tina, Gene, and Louise) who owns a hamburger restaurant on Ocean Avenue. After a slow start, sitcom started gaining audience while the critics started giving it praise after season one. The show also won a Primetime Emmy Award for an Outstanding Animated Program.
“A Bob’s Burgers film fits perfectly with our initiative to redouble our family and animation efforts” said 20th Century Fox Film chairman and CEO Stacey Snider in a statement. “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.”
