DreamWorks has gifted the perfect Christmas and New Year gift with the first look of animated film Captain Underpants
EW has brought out the first look of animated film Captain Underpants, based on the books by Dav Pilkey. It follows two fourth graders named George Beard (Kevin Hart) and Harold Hutchins (Thomas Middleditch), who hypnotize their principal (Ed Helms) into becoming the titular superhero, even though he has no special abilities, just a really big pair of underpants.
Director David Soren said: “[Helms] has managed to tap into the sheer stupidity of Captain Underpants. He’s a delusional superhero who thinks he’s got all kinds of powers and has literally zero ability beyond just that of a middle-aged man.”
Nick Kroll will voice the animated film’s bad guy, Professor Poopypants, a man suffering from the devastating effects of incontinence. Directed by David Soren, Captain Underpants is set to hit theaters on June 2, 2017.
