UPDATE: Although reports claimed the Bob’s Burger movie wasn’t happening, The Blast spoke with a rep from FOX and were assured all is going forward. It seems there was just an error on the schedule, which led to all the confusion.

Sad news ‘Bob’s Burgers’ fans, the anticipated film for the FOX show is no longer scheduled for release. This past week it was heard that Disney would be doing some major changes in the projects 20th Century Fox was set to release.

One of those films happened to be ‘Bob’s Burgers: The Movie’ which was set to release on July 17th of 2020. Seems like the film wasn’t up to the standards of Disney and instead had it removed. While there are no clear indications of whether or not Disney will push for the film, fans can only hope.

‘Bob’s Burgers’ isn’t the only show feeling the heat from Disney. According to CartoonBrew, the Blue Sky Studio feature Nimona has also been delayed by ten months. Disney of course still listed a number of unnamed Marvel movies to keep on the roster.

The ‘Bob’s Burgers’ film was highly anticipated for fans and the cast since 2017. The shows creator Loren Bouchard was just as excited to see the dysfunctional family on the big screen for fans to enjoy.

"We’re thrilled to be invited to bring Bob’s Burgers to the big screen,” said show creator Loren Bouchard when the movie was 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?!”

Although it was unclear of what the plot would be for the film, fans didn’t seem to care as long as they got to see the Belchers on screen. The shows main actors didn’t even know what the film would be centered around, but John Roberts who voices the exuberant Linda Belcher did know that it would be musical. "I do know it's very musical and I'm sure it's going to be great!” said Roberts. This totally sounds like a Linda moment worth watching.

But this all seems to feel like a bad breakup now that the movie has been pulled.

Despite this, fans can’t lose hope as there is a possibility the movie can be moved to premiere on Disney+ or Hulu. Maybe a trending hashtag will get Disney’s attention. For now, fans have to watch their favorite dysfunctional family on FOX every Sunday night at 9 pm. With Thanksgiving season upon us, its that time of year to see Bob talk to the turkey. Knowing this family, the holidays never go as planned and things might go wrong.
