Dreamworks debuts opening credits for The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants
With books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid getting successful film franchises I wondered how long it would be for the hit series Captain Underpants would get something. I have never read the books but I have always skimmed through them at the stores just for the silly title and fun art in them. The book finally came to life in the hilarious animated feature in 2017 and now it’s coming to the small screen with the all-new animated series The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants on Netflix.
The series follows George Beard and Harold Hutchins, two best buds who share a love of comic books, practical jokes and a strong dislike for their cranky, fun-hating school principal, Mr. Krupp. When their over-the-top pranks get out of hand, the boys unleash their creative superpowers by transforming Krupp into the bumbling, briefs-baring superhero, Captain Underpants! The future of Jerome Horwitz Elementary is always in jeopardy, and it’s up to two prank-loving fourth graders and one goofy caped crusader to save it. What could possibly go wrong?
The series features the voice cast of Nat Faxon as Captain Underpants/Mr. Krupp, young actors Jay Gragnani and Ramone Hamilton who voice best pals, George Beard and Harold Hutchins as well as Sean Astin as the Narrator. While you have to wait until July 13th to catch the series exclusively on Netflix, but you can check out the opening credits sequence here now.
