The first glimpse of the animated film brings the series to life, as best buddies George Beard and Harold Hutchins (voiced by (Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch) hypnotize their mean principal Benny Krupp (Ed Helms) into Captain Underpants. The superhero (yes, he's a superhero) and the elementary kids then embark on a wild adventure to save the world from a wicked scientist.
