Dreamworks has released the first trailer for Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, based off of the children’s book series of the same name.
As someone who grew up reading the Captain Underpants books, even though I’ll admit I was way too old to be reading them, the trailer nails the childhood mischievousness and antics that I loved so much from the pages of the series.
The official synopsis can be found below:
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 superhero named Captain Underpants.
