The Belcher family is going Hollywood (can’t you hear Linda saying “Aww, yay!”).
20th Century Fox is bringing Bob’s Burgers to the silver screen as part of their efforts to “redouble” their family and animation efforts.
There’s no clear story line the movie will follow but it will include the Belcher family — Bob, Linda, Tina, Gene and Louise — along side their friends and enemies.
Show creator Loren Bouchard said there’s pressure to make a great movie both fans of the show and people who’ve never seen the show will love.
“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,” he said. “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.”
The film is set to hit theaters on July 17, 2020. For now, a new season of Bob’s Burgers is currently airing on FOX Sundays at 7:30pm as part of FOX’s night animation domination.
