 Director: David Soren. 

Voices: Ed Helms, Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch. USA 2017. TBC mins.

 

Noted Dreamworks animator David Soren (Shrek, Turbo) directs the first film of a potential franchise based on author Dav Pilkey’s weirdly wonderful children’s adventures featuring elementary-school troublemakers George (Hart) and Harold (Middleditch). Rather than studying in the classroom, George and Harold prefer sitting in their tree house chronicling the exploits of their unlikely superhero, Captain Underpants, in their homemade comic books. However, when their stern headmaster Mr Krupp (Helms) finally catches them out, they accidentally hypnotise him into thinking that he is the caped tighty-whitey crusader. The faux Captain is then tormented by a new history teacher, Prof. Poopypants (Nick Kroll), prompting a slew of fast-paced misadventures that Soren and his team energise with an array of animation formats.
