20th Century Fox said today that it is making a feature film based on the Fox animated series Bob’s Burgers and has set a July 2020 release date. The series is coming off an Emmy win this year for Outstanding Animated Series and took the same honor in 2014.
It first appeared on Fox in 2011.
“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?!”
