Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Based on the popular Scholastic Books 8-volume series by Dav Pilkey, launched September of 1997. There are over 50 million Pilkey books in print in the U.S. alone. Eight Captain Underpants books have been published in 19 countries and several have debuted at #1 on various bestseller lists.
Meet George Beard and Harold Hutchins, a couple of wise guys. The only thing they enjoy more than playing practical jokes is creating their own comic books. And together they have created the greatest comic-book superhero in the history of their elementary school—CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS!
But George and Harold’s principal, doesn’t like their pranks or their comic books. And he's cooked up a plan to catch George and Harold and stop their shenanigans—once and for all!
This raucously subversive comedy for the entire family tells the story of these two overly imaginative 4th grade pranksters who hypnotize their mean, power-mad principal, old Mr. Krupp, into thinking he’s the ridiculously enthusiastic, kind-hearted, elastic-banded, and incredibly dimwitted Captain Underpants.
Whenever the principal hears the sound of fingers snapping, he turns into Captain Underpants and takes on the wretched super-villain Professor Poopypants. ”
