In ‘flipping’ marvellous news, Bob’s Burgers is making the leap from the small screen to cinemas and finally has a release date.
Loren Bouchard’s critically acclaimed animation is currently wrapping up its ninth season (with a tenth on the way), but the good news doesn’t end there.
Although the Bob’s Burgers movie was announced over two years ago, the recent acquisition of 20th Century Fox has seemed to spur the project forward. Bouchard’s show fell under the Fox umbrella, but with the House of Mouse taking control, uncertainty surrounding the movie has been dropped.
As reported by IndieWire, the Bob’s Burgers movie will officially hit cinemas on July 17, 2020. Unsurprisingly, the full cast of H. Jon Benjamin, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman, John Roberts, Kristen Schaal, and Larry Murphy are all reported to return.
There are no details about the movie’s plot, but in the past, Bouchard has teased some of the show’s big mysteries might be resolved. If you want to know where Louise got her rabbit ears or why we never hear about Bob’s mum, you should probably watch the Bob’s Burgers movie.
When the big screen outing was first announced back in 2017, Bouchard gushed:
“We’re thrilled to be invited to bring Bob’s Burgers to the big screen. 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?!”
It’s interesting to note that the Bob’s Burger movie originally came with a July 17, 2020 release date. However, with so much changing and Fox now falling under Disney’s rule, it was unclear how the big merger would affect the likes of Bob’s Burgers.
Elsewhere, Disney outlined its future plans for everything from Marvel movies to Star Wars, Indiana Jones 5 to the ongoing Avatar saga. At leasts the Bob’s Burgers movie is in some great company as Mickey Mouse continues to rule it over the box office.
