Kevin Hart & More to Voice New DreamWorks Animation Film CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS
Some real-life comedy superheroes Ed Helms, Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch, Nick Kroll and Jordan Peele are joining forces in Dreamworks Animations upcoming feature film, Captain Underpants. These award-winning voice talents will help Captain Underpants once again save the day as everyone's favorite waistband warrior takes to the big screen for some seriously comedic crime fighting action.
"These actors are some of the funniest around today," said director, Rob Letterman (Monsters vs. Aliens, Gulliver's Travel). "Letting them loose with these characters is sure to be a hysterical ride."
Captain Underpants is based on Dav Pilkey's popular book series and centers around two scheming fourth graders, George Beard (Kevin Hart) and Harold Hutchins (Thomas Middleditch) whose personal missions are to play pranks, hide in their secret treehouse and write comic books.
But when they accidentally bring their favorite comic book character, Captain Underpants, to life through a hypnosis accident involving their megalomaniacal principal Mr. Krupp (Ed Helms), their elementary school life becomes anything but elementary. Rounding out the cast will be Jordan Peele who will voice Melvin, the nerdy nemesis of George and Harold, and Nick Kroll as the insidious villain, Professor Poopypants.
