‘The Bob’s Burgers Movie’ poster hints at possible characters that could appear in the movie
The new poster for The Bob’s Burgers Movie obviously features Bob, Linda, Tina, Gene, and Louise most prominently. However, it showcases a variety of characters surrounding a burger with the title on it, which could offer a hint at what characters fans can expect to see in the movie.
The poster features a wide array of characters that could appear in The Bob’s Burgers Movie. Bob’s best friend, Teddy, is an obvious inclusion who frequently joins the family’s adventures.
The Belcher kids’ classmates Tammy Larsen, Jocelyn, Jimmy Pesto Jr., Chloe Barbash, Darryl, Rudy, and Harley are all included. Meanwhile, school staff members such as Ms. LaBonz and Phillip Frond also have a clear appearance on the poster that could hint at their inclusion in the film.
The new poster for The Bob’s Burgers Movie includes other supporting characters, such as Sergeant Bosco, health inspectors Hugo Habercore and Ron, former criminal Mickey, Speedo Guy, and landlord Calvin Fischoeder.
Other even more minor characters appear on the poster including Louise’s favorite toy Kuchi Kopi, a raccoon named Little King Trashmouth, and the imaginary horse named Jericho.
Loren Bouchard delayed the film to bring it to theaters
Entertainment Weekly interviewed Bouchard to talk about the animated television show, as well as The Bob’s Burgers Movie. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic had a particularly difficult impact on the film’s distribution strategy. However, Bouchard was certain that he didn’t want this to be a direct-to-streaming release.
“We talked about [streaming] as it pertains to the movie and we decided we really want the movie to come out in theaters because Bob’s is already on TV,” Bouchard said. “Of course, we want everyone to be able to safely see it in movie theaters. We don’t want anyone to put themselves at risk.”
Bouchard continued: “But assuming there’s a point at which everyone can go back to theaters safely, we’re excited about Bob’s the movie being seen in the theater, in the dark with other people, because that’s something we’ve never been able to do before. That’s the main course that we’re delivering to people, in this case.”
