“Captain Underpants The First Epic Movie”, Directed by David Soren with a screenplay written by Nicholas Stoller based on the best-selling books by Dav Pilkey comes a story about two friends who are always up to no good. They hypnotize their evil principal, and in doing so, they turn him into one of their own comic book creations – the one and only Captain Underpants.
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie has a great cast that includes Jordan Peele, Nick Kroll, Kevin Hart, Kristen Schaal, Thomas Middleditch, and Ed Helms. All of these actors have big personalities and I think it will help bring a comedic atmosphere and the characters will really stand out.
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 super.
The film is set to come out in theaters on June 2nd, 2017. I think it will bring in quite a bit at the box-office based on how popular the series is and because of the awesome team it has behind it. Will you be watching Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie? Let us know.
DreamWorks Animation presented the first trailer for Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. Directed by David Soren (Turbo), this animated adventure will show the story of two irresponsible teasing boys, who hypnotize the director of their school, making him believe that he is a superhero in pantyhose, called Captain Underpants.

Also known as Captain Underpants, Dav Pilkey's comic book series series features 12 books and 3 spinoffs from 1997 to the present day. It was about time he had his movie!. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie will feature voices from Ed Helms, Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch and comedian Nick Kroll. It will be released on June 2 in the United States, with no date for Mexico at the moment.
After seeing fans devour his quirky Captain Underpants novels for more than 20 years, author Dav Pilkey finally realized it was time for a change. Following DreamWorks Animation’s acquisition of the books’ rights in 2011, Pilkey’s vision fell into the creative hands of director David Soren, whose The Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie will make its highly anticipated premiere on June 2.
Soren, who was also behind the lens for DreamWorks’ 2013 feature film Turbo, spent two years bringing the books to life. And given that the series spans a dozen titles and three spin-offs—leading to 70 million books sold to date—the duo has had no shortage of material to play with.
The books follow George and Harold, two fourth-grade best friends who are also pranksters. They hypnotize their principal, Benjamin Krupp, and turn him into Captain Underpants, a superhero from the comic books they wrote together. Once the movie’s trailer was released a few weeks ago, things became real for Soren, who tells Kidscreen about the creative demands of adapting a classic.
It’s just the greatest privilege that you could ask for, I’ve loved the books for years. I stumbled across the first novel that Dav Pilkey created, almost 20 years ago now, at a book store and read about half of it in the aisle. I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, I wish I came up with this myself.’ Then when I had kids we rediscovered them together, read all of them and then my kids read through them themselves. I’ve loved them from day one, so it is a great honor.
