To Bob’s burgers fans, the wait for the movie has been quite long. The film was originally announced in 2017 with a planned release for 2020, but the merger between Disney and Fox has meant that the latter company’s film has been in a strange state of limbo. There would be few or no updates at all for the next few years, but at this summer’s Comic-Con, creator Loren Bouchard promised that the Belcher family would still be coming to the cinema.
Even though we are suntil without trailer, we at least now know what the movie wants Be about. Over on the website of 20th Century Studios, page for the movie promises a “musical-comedy-mysterious adventure” for Bob (H. John Benjamin), Linda (John Roberts) and their insane children Tina (Dan Mintz), Louise (Kristen Schaal) and Gene (Eugene Mirman). Synopsis is as follows:
The story begins when a burst water pipe creates a huge sinkhole right in front of Bob’s Burgers that blocks the entrance indefinitely and destroys the Belcher family’s plans for a successful summer. While Bob and Linda struggle to keep the business afloat, the kids try to solve a mystery that could save their family’s restaurant. As the dangers increase, these underdogs help each other find hope and struggle to get back behind the counter where they belong.
Sounds like a pretty good story for Belchers, one that will hopefully be worth the entire cinema release. The Belchers are no stranger to bizarre adventures, and from the description it sounds as if it will be up there with some of the series’ best episodes. The most exciting thing about the film will of course be the music; the show has a story with some pretty good jams, from short earworms to more extravagant numbers, and it will be interesting to see what Bouchard and 20th Century Animation do with a bigger budget.
Along with the Belcher family and Bob’s best friend Teddy (Larry Murphy), the voice roles include Sam Seder as Hugo the Health Inspector, plus Zach Galifianakis, Kevin Kline and David Wain in undisclosed roles. (Presumably they will come to vote Felix Fischoeder, Calvin Fischoeder and Courtney Wheeler, their respective characters from the show.) What remains to be seen is whether Bob’s frenemy Jimmy Pesto appears in the film; his actor Jay Johnston was fired from the show last month for his allinvolved in the capital riots on 6 January. Pesto has been confirmed to not be performing at all during the program’s current 12th season, but according to Benjamin, the film is began voice work in late summer 2020.
The Bob’s Burgers movie is expected to premiere in theaters on May 27.
