I read Captain Underpants as a kid. To be honest, I couldn’t remember what the first book was about, but I do recall the second book, where the villain Professor Poopypants unveiled some terrible plot to do something with monster toilets. Okay, to be fair, the whole chronology is a little blurry up top.
Shockingly enough, though, with the release of the first trailer for Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, I have to say they hit the tone pretty well. I’m still not entirely sure why there is a film adaptation dropping this late. I guess, I can’t even recall seeing new books in this series any time recently. Perhaps there are, but it just doesn’t seem popular for this time period. All the same, I enjoyed the books growing up and I’m moderately interested after seeing the first trailer.
So what did you think? Have you read any of the Captain Underpants series? Are you excited for the film? Let me know/Drop a comment below!
