In the modern era of entertainment, animated series have become virtually just as popular as live-action series. Shows like the The Simpsons and Family Guy have been on air for significantly longer than most television series manage to survive and have been an integral piece of pop culture for many years, illustrating just how well some animated series manage to resonate with audiences in a way that makes demand for them increase dramatically as more time passes. Thus it is no surprise when a new animated series pops up and catches audiences’ attention, such was the case with Bob’s Burgers when it first aired on Fox over a decade ago and captivated viewers with a uniquely outlandish sense of humor. Well now they’re set to hit the big screen, and we have all the details regarding their silver screen debut The Bob’s Burgers Movie.
Bob’s Burgers first premiered on January 9th, 2011 and featured the Belcher family, a family of five who own and live atop their very own burger restaurant. Mother, father, 2 daughters and a son, the Belchers are a quirky and unique family who captured audiences’ hearts almost as fast as they took the screen with their unique brand of humor that has proven successful for over a decade now. Subsequently it is no surprise that the Belcher family would eventually make their way to theaters, and fans have been teeming with anticipation and counting down the days until The Bobs Burger Movie hits theaters. Well now we have all the details: the film is set in the summer, the Belchers are setting up their burger show in anticipation of a successful summer only for an “enormous sinkhole” to open up in the street and block their entrance, forcing the parents to get creative while their children “try to solve a mystery that could save the family’s restaurant.” Sounds pretty on brand for something you’d expect to see in Bob’s Burgers, and fans can continue counting down the days until The Bob’s Burgers Movie premieres in theaters on May 27th.
When any successful series runs for twelve seasons, it is of virtually no surprise when a movie based upon said series ends up being made. Bob’s Burgers was just next in line, and rightfully so. It should be interesting to see what the creative minds behind Bob’s Burgers have in store, with The Bob’s Burgers Movie set to debut in theaters in a few weeks.
