20th Century Fox have announced that a feature-length film version of their popular animated TV show ‘Bob’s Burgers’ will be released on 17th July 2020.
“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.”
The creator of ‘Bob’s Burgers’, Loren Bouchard, had the following to say regarding the news:
“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?”
The movie will feature the same cast and creative team as the television show that has quickly gathered a following of loyal fans since its debut in 2011.
