Dreamworks’ Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie releasing this June


With a trend of superhero films going across the globe, there is another superhero movie that will soon join the bandwagon.

The name of the film is Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. This is one of those movies where the protagonist saves the day not with super powers, but with a dose of humour.

The feature tells the story of two over-imaginative prankster kids and their way of defying authority, in this case, their strict school principal.

Tired of their pranks and mischief when the principal threatens to put each of the prankster duos into separate classes, they accidentally hypnotise him into thinking that he is a superhero named ‘Captain Underpants.’

Clad in a cape and just a white underpant, the principal tries to fight crime but the duo must be around with him to ensure hysteria.

The story also has a villain named Professor Pants whom the now hypnotised superhero must stop with a little assistance from the kids.

The series has been inspired by 1990s and early 2000s comic phenomenon of the so-called name.

DreamWorks Animation recently released their first trailer of the film.

 It features the voicing talents of Hollywood actors Ed Helms, Kevin Hart, Kristen Schaal and Jordan Peele. The two kids George and Harold are voiced by Hart and Helms respectively.


The film is set to hit theatres on 2 June.
