DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants premieres on Netflix July 13

Get ready for a world of pranks, super villains, and your favorite underwear-wielding superhero in the Netflix original series DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants premiering July 13. George Beard and Harold Hutchins are two best buds who share a love of comic books and 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?

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 70 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. Kids have asked for more Captain Underpants books for years, and to me it feels like we are getting brand-new books— except they’re animated!

  1. I don’t have Netflix, but I did take my grandkids to see this movie when it came out. They were bored and totally disappointed when they saw it. As a matter of fact, when the DVD came out, they did not even want me to buy it for them! Sorry, but I have to give my honest opinion!

  2. ive heard of this but haven’t seen it yet sounds like something my grandkids would enjoy

  3. I am so going to invite my 2 step-grandsons over for pizza, popcorn and Underpants when this comes out!

  4. Ever since my daughter has seen the “Captain Underpants” display at Target, she has been wanting to see this movie. It is supposed to be really funny. My kids love super heroes and the underwear part is funny to them.

  5. I’ve never seen this movie but I’m sure my 7 year old nephew would love it. He’s at that stage where everyone other sentence out of his mouth is a poop or underwear joke. LOL!
