DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants Premiered Only On Netflix!

TRA-LA-LAAAA! 

 

Get your pranks and whoopie cushions ready because DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants premieres this Friday July 13th, on Netflix! From Peabody Award and Emmy-winning executive producer Peter Hastings, the series is based on the epic novels by Dav Pilkey that have sold more than 80 million copies worldwide. Pilkey himself has praised the show saying “I binge-watched all of the episodes in one afternoon…I couldn’t help myself. Peter Hastings has totally captured the craziness and heart of the Captain Underpants multiverse and I hope everybody will love the show as much as I do. I can’t wait to watch it all again!!!”. The series provides an entire new experience with new storylines, crazier adventures, wilder pranks and never-seen-before villains. To celebrate this exciting premiere, we have three new clips to share (with additional links and materials below) that highlight our two best friends, George Beard and Harold Hutchins, who continue to share a love of comic books and practical jokes – and a strong dislike for their cranky, fun-hating school principal, Mr. Krupp.

 

In the hilarious new series, each 22-minute episode is divided into short “chapters.” Along with a seemingly unstoppable villain, each stand-alone adventure contains an original comic created by George and Harold, and, just like Pilkey’s books, boasts an inventive visual style that might inspire viewers to create something themselves. In the span of one episode, they might see everything from puppets to live-action moments interspersed with the 2-D animation.

 

The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants stars both established and emerging voice talent including Sean Astin (“Lord of the Rings,” “Stranger Things“, “The Goonies”) as the series’ narrator, Academy-Award winner Nat Faxon (“Ben and Kate,” “Married”) as Captain Underpants/Mr. Krupp, as well as young actors Jay Gragnani and Ramone Hamilton who voice best pals, George Beard and Harold Hutchins. The series features a great additional cast including David Koechner (“Anchorman”) as Mr. Meaner, Tress MacNeille (“The Simpsons”, “VeggieTales in the House”) as Ms. Hurd and Mindy Sterling (“Austin Powers”) as Melvin’s mom along with more!
