The Bob’s Burgers movie gets a recap, still no trailer

For fans of Bob’s Burgers, the wait for the cinema film has been quite long. The film was originally announced in 2017 with a planned release for 2020, but the merger between Disney and Fox has left the latter company’s films in a strange state of uncertainty. There would be few or no updates not at all for the next few years, but at this summer’s Comic-Con creator Loren Bouchard promised that the Belcher family would still come to the cinema.

While we still don’t have a trailer, at least we now know what the movie will be about. The 20th Century Studios website states the page for the movie 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 ruptured water pipe right in front of Bob’s Burgers creates a huge sinkhole, blocking the entrance indefinitely and ruining the Belchers’ plans for a successful summer. As 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.

Sounds like a pretty good story for the Belchers, one that will hopefully be worth its full theatrical release. The Belchers are no stranger to outlandish adventures, and from the description it sounds like it will be up there with some of the best episodes of the series. The most exciting thing about the film is of course the music; the show has a history of pretty good jams, from short earwigs nasty more extravagant figures, and it will be interesting to see what Bouchard and 20th Century Animation do with a bigger budget.

Along with the Belcher family and Bob’s best friend Teddy (Larry Murphy), the voice cast includes Sam Seder as Hugo the Health Inspector, plus Zach Galifianakis, Kevin Kline and David Wain in secret roles. (Presumably they will voice Felix Fischoeder, Calvin Fischoeder and Courtney Wheeler, their respective characters from the show.) What remains to be seen is whether Bob’s frenemy Jimmy Pesto will make an appearance in the film; his actor Jay Johnston was fired from the show last month for his alleged involvement in the January 6 riots in the capital. It’s been confirmed that pesto won’t be appearing at all during the show’s current 12th season, but according to Benjamin, the movie will started voice work during the late summer of 2020.

The Bob’s Burgers Movie is expected to hit theaters on May 27.
