Fox is pushing to get Family Guy, The Simpsons and Bob’s Burgers into cinemas before Disney’s take-over

August 28th, 2018 by Marc Comments

With Disney currently signing the paperwork on their deal to take over 20th Century Fox’s properties, it seems Fox wants to get as much stuff out before it actually happens.

It seems that their three hottest animated properties are getting the big screen treatment before Mickey Mouse decides their future… Family Guy, The Simpsons and Bob’s Burgers.

Family Guy is reportedly getting a movie that will be animated and live-action (?!) from 20th Century Fox and Fox Television while The Simpsons is getting a big screen sequel and Bob’s Burgers will be getting a straight up animated movie.

And we’re excited for all of them.

There’s not much more known for now but if and when more news becomes available we’ll be there with the details.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
