Animation Magazine - - Front Page -

(DreamWorks An­i­ma­tion | 20th Cen­tury Fox) Di­rec­tor: David Soren Re­lease Date: June 2, 2017 Rot­ten Toma­toes Score: 87% Syn­op­sis: Two grade school class clowns hyp­no­tize their grouchy prin­ci­pal into think­ing he’s an imag­i­nary su­per­hero named Cap­tain Un­der­pants, but the two soon lose con­trol over their cre­ation. Box Of­fice to Date: $107.8 mil­lion world­wide The Word: “While the movie is solidly and un­apolo­get­i­cally pitched to­wards kids, it has a sub­ver­sive streak that is as gen­uine and sharp as any­thing whipped up by Roald Dahl.” – Oliver Jones, New York Ob­server. Awards Chances: Os­car’s love of crowd-pleasers and fealty to both of an­i­ma­tion’s D-Mon­sters may of­fer an edge here. The DreamWorks team de­liv­ered a charm­ing, lov­ing adap­ta­tion of Dav Pilkey’s best­selling, anti-au­thor­i­tar­ian books.
