0590846280Critical reception was strong for How to Train Your Dragon 2, which opened this weekend, but the box office receipts were a disappointment, earning “only” $50 million (predictions had been $65 million).

Just before the opening, Dreamworks announced a release date for How To … 3 , (6/17/18) as well as a raft of other animated sequels and just one original title, an adaptation of Captain Underpants, based on the best selling Dav Pilkey series (Scholastic).

0545504902_494c4Voicing the leads will be Kevin Hart (George Beard) and Ed Helms (the Captain). Directed by Rob Letterman, the movie  is scheduled for release on Jan. 13, 2017.

Captain Underpants first appeared in The Adventures of Captain Underpants (Scholastic,1997). The eleventh volume in the series, Captain Underpants and the Tyrannical Retaliation of the Turbo Toilet 2000 will be released on August 26.
