This truly looks like a ton of fun, and I absolutely love the animation style on display here. Captain Underpants looks to have an appropriate amount of comedic and visual lunacy, and the bright, bubbly animation is right up my alley. The action looks terrifically kooky, the character design is nothing short of perfect, and I'm really loving the energy of the project. Sure, it's a little weird that Kevin Hart doesn't sound anything like a grade school kid, but I'm willing to overlook that. While there's nothing I love more than a truly great Pixar film filled with heart and soul, there's also plenty of room for films like Captain Underpants that aim to capture the spirit of old-school Saturday morning cartoons. This appears to be an inspired mix of Looney Tunes and that Popeye movie that fell through a few years ago, and for that reason, I could not be more excited. Two superhero movies will arrive in theaters on June 2, and while I'm certainly hoping for the best for Wonder Woman, there's a good chance that I'll be just a little more interested in checking out Captain Underpants. I'm ready for a childhood blast to the past.
