20th Century Fox confirmed it is making a feature film based on the Fox animated series Bob’s Burgers. It is set to release in July 17, 2020. The series won an Emmy this year for Outstanding Animated Series as well as in 2014.
“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?!”
This information is correct. Musical. Has to be.

Newman and Walden, Chairmen of Fox Television said: “What a year for Bob’s Burgers! First, the Emmy Award for Best Animated Series and now, an amazing opportunity for the gifted Loren Bouchard to take the Belcher family to movies. Loren, Jim and their talented team continue to knock it out of the park week after week, and seven years in, the show is still growing. Working with Stacey and everyone at the feature studio, we know this important property is in the best possible hands.”
We can’t wait to see Louise Belcher’s manic energy on the big screen! There are so many instances when she proved to be our spirit animal:
