Captain Underpants, The wildly popular children’s book series by Dav Pilkey is ready to make its foray onto the big screen with Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. The film is a Dreamworks product so it will unquestionably be a top-notch production.
The books' stories are centered on a couple of elementary school pranksters, Harold Hutchins and George Beard whose home-made comic books feature a hapless super?-hero named Captain Underpants who inadvertently comes to life when the pair hypnotize their school principal, Mr. Krupp.
The award-winning series featured 12 books between 1997 and 2015 and this will be the first adaptation for the big screen. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie seems to be somewhat of an origin story as we meet George and Harold (voiced by Kevin Hart and Ed Helms respectively) as they are being placed in separate classes by principal Krupp with hopes of annihilating their friendship. But the boys will have none of that as they hypnotize principal Krupp and turn him into Captain Underpants.
The remainder of the plot looks to be George and Harold trying to undo the spell as the new villainous school teacher attempts to foil their plan.
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie is not yet rated, but iit will most likely bear the PG-13 brand for crude humor.
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie is slated to hit theaters this summer on June 2, 2017.
