Since it first premiered in January of 2011, FOX’s animated hit “Bob’s Burgers” has churned out more than 125 episodes of hilarious family-sitcom goodness. And now the popular franchise is officially headed to the big screen.
“Bob’s Burgers” centers around the Belcher family, which owns and operates an underappreciated burger joint in unnamed seaside resort town. Over the years the series has accumulated an impressive cast of regular supporting characters, many of whom are voiced by some of the biggest names in American comedy, such as Sarah Silverman, Kevin Kline, and Zach Galifianakis.
Today FOX announced that a feature film version of “Bob’s Burgers” will arrive in theaters on July 17th, 2020 with series creator Loren Bouchard and stars H. Jon Benjamin (Bob), Dan Mintz (Tina), Eugene Mirman (Gene), John Roberts (Linda), and Kristen Schaal (Louise) all on board. Chances are we’ll see most of that supporting cast pop up as well.
“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,” Bouchard 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. In other words, it has to be the best movie ever made. But no pressure, right?!”
“Bob’s Burgers” is currently in its eighth season and runs new episodes Sunday nights on FOX.
