It was bound to happen. The Belcher family managed to drag their fledgling burger shop into a feature-length animated movie. The Bob’s Burgers Movie is indeed happening, and 20th Century Studios just released the official trailer for it.
The Bob’s Burgers Movie will be in theatres only [yay!] on May 27th. Judging from the trailer below, don’t expect something on the scale of The Simpson’s Movie. This looks and feels like just a longer episode of the show, which isn’t a bad thing at all. Bob’s Burgers has remained a quirky yet endearing staple of the Fox animation lineup since 2011.
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. 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.
I’ve been a fan of Bob’s Burgers since it aired. Sometimes the secondary characters can get a bit grating, but Louise and Gene always draw me back in. It’s not the quality of the animation or even the story structure that makes Bob’s Burgers enjoyable to watch. It’s the voice acting. H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman, and Kristen Schaal have great chemistry as the Belchers.
Oh, and we loved Lousie so much that we got our daughter a pink bunny ear hat.
