Fox Ordered A 'Bob's Burgers' Film, And It's Coming Right Up For 2020

The critically-acclaimed cartoon "Bob's Burgers" is making its way to the big screen.

Expected to feature the full Belcher family, the film is slated for the summer of 2020, according to 20th Century Fox.

One of the show's creators said: "We know the movie has to scratch every itch the fans of the show have ever had. ... But no pressure, right?" 

The news follows the show's recent Emmy win for Outstanding Animated Program — an award "Bob's Burgers" has also been nominated for six years in a row. Its first win was in 2014.

The cartoon's critical success has so far inspired a cookbookpop-up restaurantlive show and one episode completely animated by fans. At this point, a feature film might not come as a surprise.

The "Bob's Burgers" feature film — so far untitled — follows in the footsteps of other popular animated comedies. In 1999, the film based on "South Park" grossed $52 million in the U.S. And in 2007, "The Simpsons Movie" made $183 million.
