Finally! ‘Bob’s Burgers’ Fan rejoice!
20th Century Studios took to social media to confirm that The Bob’s Burgers Movie will be hitting theaters during Memorial Day Weekend 2022. Showrunner Loren Bouchard told EW that they want the film — which he is also directing — to play in cinemas, but the COVID-19 pandemic is proving that move to be difficult. “We talked about [streaming] as it pertains to the movie and we decided we really want the movie to come out in theaters because Bob’s is already on TV,” he said. “Of course, we want everyone to be able to safely see it in movie theaters. We don’t want anyone to put themselves at risk. But assuming there’s a point at which everyone can go back to theaters safely, we’re excited about Bob’s the movie being seen in the theater, in the dark with other people, because that’s something we’ve never been able to do before. That’s the main course that we’re delivering to people, in this case.”
The Bob’s Burgers Movie will see the Belcher family — Bob, voiced by H. Jon Benjamin, Linda, voiced by John Roberts, Tina, voiced by Dan Mintz, Gene, voiced by Eugene Mirman and Louise, voiced by Kristen Schaal — go on an “epic adventure.” ”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 said in 2017 during the film’s announcement.
