This one has been a long in development work for DreamWorks Animation and, hopefully, the start of a pretty long lasting franchise for them. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie is based on Dav Pilkey’s extraordinarily successful children’s series which contains no less than 12 books. The film, written by Nicholas Stoller (Bad Neighbours, Storks), includes a voice cast of Kevin Hart, Ed Helms, Nick Kroll, Thomas Middleditch, Jordan Peele, and Kristen Schaal. David Soren (Turbo, Madagascar 2: Escape 2 Africa) handles directing duties.
Synopsis: Based on the worldwide sensation and bestselling book series, and boasting an A-list cast of comedy superstars headed by Kevin Hart and Ed Helms, DreamWorks Animation brings audiences the long-awaited global movie event, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. This raucously subversive comedy for the entire family tells the story of two overly imaginative pranksters named George and Harold, who hypnotize their principal into thinking he’s a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants.
