This motion picture is being handled by DreamWorks Animation and director David Soren (the filmmaker behind Turbo), while it contains a cast headlined by Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch and Ed Helms. They've put out the first trailer for the movie which you can watch below:
On the other hand, wow, I'm not sure if I'm done with the distinctly adult voices of Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch voicing clearly adolescent characters. Neither of 'em do poor vocal work here, they just don't seem to mesh well with their obviously younger characters. We'll wait and see how that works in the movie itself I suppose, which I hope is good enough to be a cornerstone of today's youngsters childhood just like how the original Captain Underpants books were such a formative part of my younger years. This trailer, while not knocking it out of the park, certainly shows enough promise to make me think that could be a possibility.
You can TRA-LA-LA (boy was it cool to hear that phrase in a movie trailer, not even gonna lie) your way to the movie theater to see Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie on June 2nd, opening against Wonder Woman. This will make it the rare scenario where, between a male superhero and a female superhero, the male superhero is the one wearing less clothes!
