Faster than a speeding waistband, more powerful than boxer shorts and balder than a boiled egg – it’s Captain Underpants! Dav Pilkey’s famous (maybe infamous is better suited) book series is coming to the big screen and the wait is only, ah, brief… George and Harold are major pranksters, much to dislike of their very angry and unstable principal, Mr. Krupp.
In fear of being split up into separate classes by a raging Krupp, the pair hypnotise him. At the click of their fingers, he instantly transforms into their original comic book character Captain Underpants. It sounds like a great idea, right? Well, yes and no. See the problem is he now believes he is a super hero; it’s just that he’s one without the wit of Batman or powers of Super Man… for now. As Captain Underpants, Krupp is a clumsy hero with the best of intentions – a complete transformation from his normal self who may be just the hero they need.
