For Bean burgers fans, the wait for the movie was quite long. The film was originally announced in 2017 with a planned edition for 2020, but the merger of Disney and Fox meant that the films of this latter company were in a strange state of uncertainty. It would be a little or no updates in general in the next few years, but at this year’s Comic-Con, creator Loren Bouchard promised that the Belcher family would continue to be coming to the cinema.
Although we are withto no trailer, we at least now know what the movie is going to do to be about something. More on 20th Century Studios, movie page promises a “musical-comedy-mystery adventure” for Bob (H. John Benjamin), Linda (John Roberts) and their deranged children Tina (Dan Mintz), Louise (Kristen Schaal) and Gene (Eugene Mirman). The synopsis is as follows:
The story begins when a cracked plumbing creates a huge sinkhole right in front of Bob’s Burgers, blocking the entrance indefinitely and ruining the Belchers ’plans for a successful summer. As Bob and Linda struggle to keep their jobs, the children try to solve a mystery that could save their family’s restaurant. As the dangers grow, these outsiders help each other find hope and fight to get back behind the counter, where they belong.
Sounds like a pretty good story for the Belchers, one that we hope will be worth showing in theaters as a whole. The Belchers are not unfamiliar with unusual adventures, and from the description it sounds like they will be there with some of the best episodes of the series. The most exciting thing in the film will of course be the music; the show has a history of some pretty good jams, from short earworms to more extravagant numbers, and it will be interesting to see what Bouchard and 20th Century Animation are doing with a bigger budget.
Along with the Belcher family and Bob’s best friend Teddy (Larry Murphy), the cast includes Sam Seder as Hugo Health Inspector, plus Zach Galifianakis, Kevin Kline and David Wain in undiscovered roles. (He’ll probably answer Felix Fischoeder, Calvin Fischoeder, and Courtney Wheeler, their characters from the series.) It remains to be seen whether Bob’s enemy Jimmy Pesto will appear in the film; his actor Jay Johnston was released from the show last month for his alleinvolvement in the riots in the capital on January 6th. It has been confirmed that Pesto will not appear at all during the current 12th season of the series, but according to Benjamin, the film started voice work in late summer 2020.
A movie about Bob’s burgers in cinemas is expected on May 27.
