I think I can speak for all of us when I say, it’s about freakin time!
Break out the celebratory wine, because 20th Century Fox has just announced a feature film for their hit Emmy award-winning series Bob’s Burgers. The show just premiered its eighth season and it couldn’t be a better time to announce a big screen movie. Here’s a statement from the creator:
“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?!” (source)
Bob’s Burgers is a story of Bob Belcher, a burger flipping dad & husband and his whimsical family who embark on many quirky adventures together. The show’s success has gained it a large, devoted fanbase. Some of those fans who just happened to be super creative actually helped create the season 8 premiere. The movie is set to be released on July 17, 2020. I hope they take this perfect opportunity to serve burgers in the theaters. Just a thought.
