I honestly laughed out loud at the movie several times. They did an amazing job with it. They nailed the books' sense of humour and art style, had so many little details and visual jokes you could probably rewatch it and catch a new one every time, paced perfectly... Even though the elephant in the room was Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch are nowhere near George and Harold's ages, they honestly really made it work. Also I feel a sense of pride knowing this was animated at a studio in Montreal, and seeing Sugar from YTV in the cast is a huuuuuugely unexpected nostalgia blast for me.

I dunno what else to say other than I waited since I was a kid to see some sort of Captain Underpants cartoon or movie or whatever, and it's finally here, and it's actually really good. Totally recommended.

I remember enjoying the books as a kid. Haven't read the more recent ones though; might do that someday. Last story I remember clearly is Wrath of the Wicked Wedgie Woman.

I really hope this film is good and does well financially but I have a horrible feeling it might not meet expectations.

I haven't really seen a lot of promotion for it. It is primarily for kids so maybe there are promos on various channels that kids watch (I wouldn't know I haven't watched TV on actual TV in years).

Personally, this is a really good 2D to CGI adaption animation and style wise. Let's hope it's a good movie all around!

Not trilled about it being CGI, but I guess it's better than a grown live-action fat man in nothing but briefs.

@TeridaxXD001 I think that would have given it an R rating.

@SpongeBat1 That wasn't specifically what I had it mind, but good point.

Ohmigoshohmigoshohmigosh! This is something...

that I would've been super hype for if I were still an elementary school student. In my salad days, I enjoyed reading the books in the franchise and was a slave to toilet humor, though seeing that the movie's only now a thing elicits little more than a "huh" honestly. Now at 21, my opinion on potty-driven comedy has sorta soured over time; but not to a point where it's rather loathsome, mind. Depends on the execution obviously.

That said, I'll probably see the film when it drops. From an animation perspective, it looks great and DreamWorks has done a nice job adapting the source material's visual style. The trailer got me chuckling a few times, have to admit. Mixed feelings on the chosen voice cast thus far tho; Kevin Hart as George in particular feels like a miscast. He did a great job voicing the psychotic bunny in Secret Life of Pets, but the difference is that one's a talking animal and here he is a little boy. On the other hand, I think Ed Helms, Nick Kroll, and (to a lesser extent) Jordan Peele are fine choices for their respective roles.

Tl;dr: Basically the movie seems promising and I'm thinking of seeing it when it comes out if only for nostalgic reasons.

Thomas as Harold isn't too off. Like Jason Ritter as Dipper Pines, he might not sound like the right age but will probably get the timing and comedy. And Jordon Peele could possibly do something funny with the voice.
Kevin Hart of right now I don't think he was the right call.

Although Captain and Professor are pretty spot on.

I'm actually really pleased with the voice actor they chose for Prof. Poopypants, and Captain Underpants/Mr.Krupp's "Tra la la!" is exactly how I imagined it sounding when I read the books as a child, but I have to express the same hesitation with George & Harold VERY obviously being voiced by grown man- seems like they're miscast.

Still, I'm somewhat excited: this was a fun Series to read as a boy, so seeing it get any form of Movie adaptation is nice to me.

I'm not entirely certain about this voice cast but everything else looks great. Hopefully they'll do the books justice.

I loved the books as a kid and I am optimistic about this film, but why why why why why why why why why is this film having grown-a** men voicing little kids?

I get that it's probably for the purpose of star power, but come on, it's just weird. The Peanuts Movie used mostly child actors for the characters and that film wound up making it's budget back. Was it really that difficult for Dreamworks to audition kids for this movie?

I'm still baffled by this film's creation, but I'll concede that the animation is actually quite impressive. It's pretty smooth and looks spot on to the books' art style.

@HyperVoiceActing It's animation style somewhat reminds me of "The Peanuts Movie"
