Animation’s favorite restorers get the SteelBook treatment. Collider may exclusively reveal that Bob’s Burgers Film arrives in 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray with a gorgeous SteelBook that features the titular burger joint and the massive sinkhole that threatens its very existence. Inside this juicy package is also a load of special features that include your typical audio commentary, a making-of featurette and deleted scenes alongside the theatrical shorts and animated extras that pull back the curtain on the show’s creative process.
Based on Loren Bouchardlong-running, Emmy-winning animated comedy, Bob’s Burgers movie information brings the Belcher family to the big screen for the first time in a comedic, musical and mysterious way. After a water main burst near the restaurant, a sinkhole forms, preventing the family from doing business during the summer, normally the busiest time of the year. With almost no income and a bank loan coming due, Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) and Linda (John Roberts) are facing the closure of the restaurant with no easy way to recover all the money. Meanwhile, the kids are embroiled in a murder mystery that could help save the restaurant from permanent closure and the Belchers from homelessness. All the while, the family leans on each other for support in what might be the most difficult time of their lives.
Many of the major players across Bob’s Burgers appear in the film with Benjamin and Roberts leading a group that also includes Kristen Schal, Eugene Mirmanand Dan Mintz like the three Belcher children. To complete the loaded cast, cast members return Kevin Kline, larry murphy, Zach Galifianakis, Jenny Slate, David Wain, Aziz Ansari, David Hermann, Gary Cole, Brian Huskey, Ron Lynchand Stephanie Beatrice with a special appearance by Sam Seder.
Originally, the cover of the SteelBook was to depict the Belcher family being shot through the air by the bursting water main, which was an unused photo courtesy of the director. Bernard Derriman. In the end, however, the team decided it was best for the case to show Ocean Ave and all of its iconic shops. In their statement to Collider about the artwork, they thought about fans and street familiarity, as well as the potential Easter egg, when creating the cover:
“Having the time and the platform for a feature to make the series’ generally flatter backgrounds more lush and vibrant, the creative team really wanted to feature them. These are places all fans know, so seeing them would seem familiar, but also new Fun fact – unable to resist inserting a little visual joke, the team decided that the images on the disc should look like dirty plates, as their placement in the case would put them right above the dishwasher. We hope everyone enjoys viewing the footage we’ve created as much as we hope they enjoy the contents of the discs. **Tip: Look for Easter Eggs!**”
The Bob’s Burgers movie proved to be a welcome addition to the franchise, continuing the ever-endearing Belcher family dynamic in a higher-stakes plot that only serves to bring them closer together. Collider’s Ross Bonaime reviewed the film when it was first released, saying:
“The Bob’s Burgers Movie doesn’t exactly break new ground for this world and these characters, but instead shows how impeccably crafted and brilliant this world is when firing on all cylinders. By focusing on the Belcher family and exploring their individual stories in interesting ways, Bob’s Burgers movie information proves that the Belchers are one of the most wonderful families in animation history.”
Bob’s Burgers movie information releases digitally July 12th with Blu-ray and DVD coming July 19th. If the movie wasn’t enough to satiate your hunger for more Belchers, the show was recently renewed for a 13th season on FOX, so there’s plenty more to come from animation’s favorite burger joint.
