Fortunately, if you haven’t been able to see The Bob’s Burgers Movie at a theater yet, you’re in luck: HBO has announced that the long-running animated series’ feature-length spin-off will be available to stream on July 12th through HBO Max (opens in new tab).

That’s 45 days after the movie’s May 27 release date, in case you’re keeping track. That implies The Bob’s Burgers Movie will follow in the footsteps of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and other big-budget releases by going straight to streaming.


What’s The Bob’s Burgers Movie about?

The Belcher family is dealing with the reality that a sinkhole has sprung up just outside their restaurant’s front door in The Bob’s Burgers Movie’s major storyline. Because of this and the approaching due date for the return of their business loan, Bob and Linda are stressed.

There are a lot of issues that the Belcher kids have to cope with, as much as kids may have issues. After their pal Mickey the carny gets arrested by the police, they naturally turn to solving the case themselves.

Critical buzz says that “has all the heart and humor that fans of the program will be hoping for while being an engaging entry point for the unconverted” for “The Bob’s Burgers Movie.” “Fun for newbies and it definitely won’t disappoint fans of the show,” the Audience summary reads.


Why is The Bob’s Burgers Movie coming to HBO Max?

The choice of streaming provider is the most intriguing part of this news. Fox created Bob’s Burgers before being acquired by Disney in 2019 and becoming 20th Century Studios. Hulu and Disney Plus both have access to all 12 seasons of the show, which is why you can find it on Hulu in the US and on Disney Plus worldwide.

Even though Disney tends to keep its hands firmly on the reins, the Warner Bros. Discovery-owned HBO Max, as far as we can determine, was not engaged with the movie’s debut on the service.

For the time being, we have no further reason for why the streaming rights for this film were not sold like the rights for any other film. Bob’s Burgers viewers will have to pay for two subscriptions in order to watch the show in its entirety. HBO Max costs $15 per month, whereas Hulu pricing starts at $7 per month with advertisements and at $13 per month without.


Should you watch The Bob’s Burgers Movie? 

Fans of the animated series Bob’s Burgers will be delighted by The Bob’s Burgers Movie, which is based on the same characters and storyline. Some staff members say that the whole thing feels like an episode of the program, according to Tom’s Guide So there’s nothing to be concerned about.

The movie could serve as an excellent introduction to the show for those who have never seen it. Bob’s Burgers doesn’t have a lot of long-winded storylines that will be difficult for first-time fans to follow. The length of the film should also allow you to get to know all of the characters and their many, many eccentricities.

Fans of the show and beginners alike will like the film, according to the Rotten Tomatoes Audience summary. This means that the only people who should avoid it are those who dislike Bob’s Burgers in the first place.
