Honestly tho Captain Underpants was so good. The animation style absolutely did the books justice, I hope other cg animation studios take note. Also yes, there was a Flip-O-Rama bit.
Also, some fun bits from the director QnA with David Soren:
- Apparently many studios have wanted to do a Captain Underpants movie for a long time, but Dav Pilkey didn’t feel ready to do one until he brought the series to a close.
- The reason Dav chose to make this film with Dreamworks was because everyone showed up to the pitch meeting wearing their underwear outside their pants.
- The film was made in three countries total, in studios in Los Angeles, California, USA, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and in Paris, France.
- David Soren himself came onto the project about two years ago, which between then and now is a very short amount of time to create an animated film.
- David’s favorite part of making the film was getting to do a brief harmonica solo near the beginning of the film.
- Ed Helms has said he is ready to make 30 more films.
- Three children in the audience asked why Captain Underpants only wears his underpants.
- One child asked why he’s a captain.
