Throughout the years I have seen a lot of my favorite books as a child be transformed into either live or animated film adaptation which has been fun to see. Some that come to mind as I write this is Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and Holes. This year DreamWorks Animation is bringing yet another one of these children’s series to life, the mighty Captain Underpants.
The Adventures of Captain Underpants was written by American author and illustrator Dav Pilkey. The series is so popular it has sold over 70 million books worldwide. The story follow two kids George and Harold who hypnotize their mean principle Mr. Krupp. This accidentally turns him into their homemade comic book hero Captain Underpants, he later gains superpowers. The series concluded in 2015 with it’s twelfth book and will soon come big screens everywhere this summer.
The film is titled Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. It is directed by David Soren who also directed Turbo in 2013. It’s cast includes the voices of Jordan Peele, Nick Kroll, Kevin Hart, Ed Helms and Kristen Schaal.
Here is the official synopsis:
Based on the worldwide sensation and bestselling book series and starring Kevin Hart and Ed Helms CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS: THE FIRST EPIC MOVIE tells the story of George and Harold, who hypnotize their principal into thinking heâ€™s a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants.
Today with an introduction by Ed Helms and Kevin Hart, the first trailer for Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie was released on YouTube. You can check out the trailer down below.
My thoughts on trailer is that it looks like it will be an animated film that the entire family can enjoy together. The trailer was fast paced and the colors were very vibrant. Looks to have a lot of humor that will be delivered by actors voices that we associate with with so many hilarious films.
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie hits theaters June 2nd, 2017.
