If you were in elementary school back in the early 2000’s then you know what and who Captain Underpants is. If you’re a parent of one of those children, you too know who Captain Underpants is. If you don’t know anything about Captain Underpants and think he’s stupid then, well, you’re stupid.
Just kidding. Based on the best-selling children’s novel series, Captain Underpants is the story of just what you were sold in the trailer, a pair of fourth graders accidentally hypnotize their principle and make him a superhero named Captain Underpants who they named after their own homemade comic books. It’s a pretty charming little series that spawned a few spin-offs and sequels to the original book and a studio finally took the chance on the property and made it into a film.
The voices of Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch as George and Harold seem perfect for that child friendly, but adult style delivery to their characters and the supporting cast fits the same mold. Also cast for voice roles are Nick Kroll, Ed Helms as Captain Underpants, and Kristen Schaal. The film hits theaters June 2nd, 2017.
