Bob’s Burgers is the latest animated TV series to go big screen, and according to creator Loren Bouchard it wasn’t as easy a project as some may think.

Just one of the trickiest challenges was finding a balance between pleasing fans who’ve seen 12 seasons of the show, and creating something that non-fans could just drop into and enjoy as a standalone experience.

Bouchard speaks about that and a lot more in the very informative interview featurette from the fine people at the Oscars that we’ve popped below.

The Bob’s Burgers Movie opens in Australian cinemas this week.
