So a new trailer came out from DreamWorks. This one is for their last animated film to be distributed by 20th Century Fox, which will be "Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie", based on the book series by Dav Pilkey. This one is a film I've been waiting for because when I was a kid, I would always read the Captain Underpants books and would laugh my tail off from them. First, I like the way this film is animated. This movie is CGI, but it pays homage to the illustrations from the books. The people who made this movie also got the humor down pretty good. One of my favorite parts is when they fake out Captain Underpants flying which find hilarious.
The voice cast is a little unexpected. Kevin Hart and Tom Middleditch are cast as George and Harold respectively and that can be a little distracting because we have grown men playing fourth graders. I will admit, I don't think Kevin Hart is that bad, but Mr. Middleditch is really gonna take some getting used to.
For the film's main antagonist, we have Professor Pippy P. Poopypants, voiced by Nick Kroll. We I heard that he was cast to play Poopypants, I had some high hopes for him, because we did see him play a douche in "Sausage Party" and that was a great villain! I'm glad I can say Nick Kroll does a great job as Poopypants, and I hope he does a good villain in this film as he was in the books.
Last, but certainly not least, is Ed Helms, who is cast as the mean principal, Mr. Krupp, who will later become Captain Underpants. When Mr. Helms plays this character, it's like he's two different people. First, there's Mr. Krupp, and when it comes to playing a mean principal, Mr. Helms hits the mark; even when he's supposed to be angry, he sounds enraged and I love it!
Only thing that can make him better, is that I wish he could speak in a gruff voice, but his anger is enough to make up for it. Now we get to when George and Harold hypnotize Mr. Krupp for payback, then he becomes the Amazing Captain Underpants. Let me just say, I love Ed Helms as Captain Underpants. When he does his voice, he sounds like how I thought he would sound like. I'm already giving Mr. Helms props for his performance and I hope when this movie comes out, DreamWorks ends their deal with 20th Century Fox with a bang!
