Are your children fans of the Dav Pilkey book series, Captain Underpants? Well if they are, they are bound to enjoy Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie on DVD which has been released on Blu-ray and DVD today through Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
We join best friends George and Harold who hypnotise their head teacher Mr Krupp into believing he is their comic book superhero Captain Underpants. As the name suggests, this particular superhero only sports pants and a cape, a sight to draw laughs from any young viewer. There are lots of giggles to be had and in the end the boys manage to persuade Captain Underpants to go undercover as Mr Krupp. Are you still with me?
A new science teacher has arrived at school and he’s rather sinister. Professor Poopypants wants to rid the town of laughter. Can Captain Underpants save the day? With no real super powers this might be tricky. I won’t ruin the rest of the plot, but my son’s enjoyed watching the animated Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie on DVD.
The DVD has extra features including:
Featurettes: The Really Awesome Adventures of Captain Underpants Motion Comic, The Captain Underpants Guide to Being a Hero, The Professor Poopypants (Totally Original and Supercool) Guide to Being a Villain, Kevin Hart and Ed Helms Surprise Fans, Lunch Lady PSA with Kristen Schaal, Sock Puppets Real Stars.
