Don’t get your knickers in a twist! Check out this awesome animated comedy based on the hit series of children’s novels
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, available from Saturday 28 April in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert PG. Also available in HD
Criminals beware! There’s a superhero with a difference making a big entrance on Sky Cinema – the one and only Captain Underpants!
George (Central Intelligence’s Kevin Hart) and Harold (Silicon Valley’s Thomas Middleditch) are best buds and wannabe comic-book writers. But life starts to imitate art when a magic toy allows them to convince their hapless school prinicipal Mr Krupp (The Hangover’s Ed Helms) that he’s the film’s eponymous superhero. His special power? Astounding stupidity.
However, things begin to get serious when a mysterious new science teacher named (brace yourself) Professor Pippy Pee-Pee Diarrheastein Poopypants, Esq. rocks up at the school. What’s his game? And is Captain Underpants going to be needed to do some actual crime-busting? All will be revealed when you tune into this ace animated movie from DreamWorks Animation (they’re the folks behind Shrek, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda).
