Captain Underpants : The First Epic Movie Trailer #1
Tra-la-la!!! Get ready for an animated adventure as 20th Century Fox and DreamWorks Animation release the first trailer for their upcoming film Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. View trailer below.
Two imaginative elementary school students, George Beard and Harold Hutchins (Kevin Hart) and (Thomas Middleditch) hypnotize their arrogant principal, Benny Krupp (Ed Helms), who transforms into their titular kind hearted comic book creation known as Captain Underpants, and together, they are setting out to a dangerous journey in stopping a mad scientist Pippy Poopypants (Nick Kroll), who threatens the world.
Haha…definitely for the “juice box” crowd. Since I do work at a bookstore, I’ve seen many young readers (or their parents) ask me for the Captain Underpants books (written by author Dav Pilkey), but I personally have never picked one up (or even knew what they were all about). Now I do (at least from this trailer for the new movie). Like I said, its definitely more for the younger crowd of animated movies, which is fine. It will be interesting to see how this movie gets received, since the film’s subtext says its the “First Epic Movie”, meaning that they might be planning future installments. Regardless, the voice talents seem fine (Helms and Hart are probably going to be hilarious) and the animation style is definitely unique, so I’ll be waiting to see this movie….and review for you guys.
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie arrives in theaters on June 2nd, 2017
