‘Bob’s Burgers’ Movie Gets 2020 Greenlight
A Bob’s Burgers movie is on the way!
20th Century Fox announced that it is making a film based on the animated series. The movie has a July 17, 2020 release date.
“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 show follows the Belcher family, which includes: Bob Belcher (voice of H. Jon Benjamin)his wife Linda (John Roberts) and their three children – Tina (Dan Mintz), Gene (Eugene Mirman) and Louise (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.”
