The Belchers are making their way to theaters.
20th Century Studios revealed Monday the long-gestating Bob’s Burgers Movie would finally launch Friday, May 27th.
“The story begins when a ruptured water main creates an enormous sinkhole right in front of Bob’s Burgers, blocking the entrance indefinitely and ruining the Belchers’ plans for a successful summer,” according to the studio.
“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 mount, these underdogs help each other find hope and fight to get back behind the counter, where they belong.”
All of your favorite Bob’s Burgers characters are set to appear, including Bob (H. Jon Benjamin), Linda (John Roberts), Tina (Dan Mintz), Louise (Kristen Schaal), Gene (Eugene Mirman), Teddy (Larry Murphy), and Mr. Fischoeder (Kevin Kline).
A big-screen movie is a risky decision, especially when you consider the current theatrical climate, but the project will likely head to streaming weeks after the big-screen bow.
Bob’s Burgers remains a huge success story for FOX, currently airing its 12th season on Sundays.
A testament to the success of the show is that it has already been picked up for a 13th season, so the franchise will be around for the years to come.
The trailer has the signature wit of the original series, but it remains to be seen whether the jokes will be geared towards a more adult audience.
If the first trailer is any indication, it looks set to be very similar to the original series, which is not a bad thing.
Bob’s Burgers has survived for so long by remaining comical.
