Since 2011, the Belcher family has been flipping burgers on Fox and serving up laughs for viewers to the tune of multiple Emmy nominations and wins for Outstanding Animated Series.
Now the Belchers are gunning for something more – dare we say the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature? Granted, the Belchers and crew behind Bob’s Burgers wouldn’t be in the running for that Academy Award until 2020.
According to Deadline, Bob’s Burgers is making its way to the silver screen on July 17th, 2020. 20th Century Fox has confirmed the news as well.
Bob’s Burgers currently airs on Fox and Fox Animation will help produce the film.
“We’re thrilled to be invited to bring Bob’s Burgers to the big screen,” Loren Bouchard, the show’s creator 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?!” Bouchard added.
