Favourite restaurateurs from animation are getting the SteelBook treatment. The Bob’s Burgers Movie will be available on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray, and it will come with a stunning SteelBook that features the titular burger business and the enormous sinkhole that poses a threat to it. Along with the theatrical shorts and animation extras that reveal the development of the show, this interesting bundle also contains a good amount of special features, such as the usual audio commentary, a making-of featurette, and deleted scenes.
The Bob’s Burgers Movie, which is based on the long-running, Emmy Award-winning animated comedy series created by Loren Bouchard, introduces the Belcher family to audiences for the first time on the big screen in a funny, musical, and enigmatic way. In this movie they show that a sinkhole develops after a nearby water main breaks, depriving the family of business during the summer, which is typically their busiest season of the year. Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) and Linda (John Roberts) are facing the closure of the restaurant since there isn’t much money coming in and a bank loan is due, and there isn’t a simple method to make up the difference. The children are involved in a murder investigation in the meantime, which may help prevent the restaurant from closing permanently and the Belcher family from being homeless.
