Disney Removes ‘Bob’s Burgers: The Movie‘ From Release Schedule. Over the weekend Disney released an updated theatrical release schedule for Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, SkyBlue, and Fox. Soon after the schedule release Disney released this statement:
“A feature adaptation of the Fox tv series Bob’s Burgers has been taken off the studio’s release schedule. Disney had previously set its release for July 17, 2020.”
Rightfully so, this instantly confused and panicked fans who have been waiting for years to see a featured length film hit the big screens. Bob’s Burgers has been a smash among fans, some would say the show even has garnished a cult following. Bob’s Burgers is far from the first film cancelled or removed by Disney in the Disney-Fox Merger.
The good news for “Belchies”came from Bob’s Burgers Creator and show runner, Loren Bouchard, who eased fans worries in two words. “Fear not.”

Though this is far from a confirmation that Bob’s Burgers: The Movie will return, it does seem to indicate that Bouchard is looking to make the project happen for fans of the long running series.
“We’re thrilled to be invited to bring Bob’s Burgers to the big screen,” Bouchard said when the movie was first announced. “We know the movie has to scratch every itch the fans of the show have ever had, but it also has to work for all the good people who’ve never seen the show. We also know it has to fill every inch of the screen with the colors and the sounds and the ever so slightly greasy texture of the world of Bob’s – but most of all it has to take our characters on an epic adventure. In other words, it has to be the best movie ever made. But no pressure, right?!”
Do you hope Disney adds a new release date for Bob’s Burgers: The Movie? Are you asking yourself “What’s Bob’s Burgers?” If you haven’t seen the show, but frequently enjoy shows such as The Simpsons, Family Guy, Archer, and more, you will enjoy this series and its worth the watch.
