Dave Pilkey’s Captain Underpants books have been ridiculously successful, which means that for some smaller people, an animated movie based on it will be very exciting indeed. Now we’ve got our first look at the movie, which Dreamworks Animation will be releasing next summer.
The film will follow two mischievous kids who hypnotize their mean high school principal in order to turn him into their comic book creation, the kind-hearted and elastic-banded Captain Underpants. Ed Helms will be the principal, with Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch as the kids.
Expect a trailer for the movie fairly soon. Before then, enjoy the first pic, which first appeared over at EW.
