Back in November it was revealed that Rob Letterman (Shark Tale, Monsters vs. Aliens) had signed on to direct DreamWorks Animation’s adaptation of Dav Pilkey’s hugely successful kid’s book Captain Underpants, and now the main voice cast for the animated movie has been announced.
According to The Wrap, Kevin Hart (Grudge Match) and Thomas Middleditch (The Campaign) are set to voice the leads George Beard and Harold Hutchins, two fourth graders who accidentally create a superhero when they hypnotize their school principal Benjamin Krupp. Ed Helms (The Hangover) is set to voice Krupp – a.k.a. Captain Underpants – while Nick Kroll (Kroll Show) will portray the villain Professor Poopypants and Jordan Peele (Key and Peele) will voice George and Harold’s nerdy playground nemesis Melvin.
As of yet, there’s no release date scheduled for Captain Underpants, but we’ll keep you updated with news as it comes.
