Kristen Schaal Joins DreamWorks Animation's Comedy Adaptation 'Captain Underpants'
Kristen Schaal is the latest casting in DreamWorks Animation's Captain Underpants. EW reports that "Schaal will play lunch lady Edith, the culinary colleague and primary love interest of Mr. Krupp," a.k.a. Captain Underpants.
Schaal is recognisable in other animated works such as Bob's Burgers, Gravity Falls, and Trixie from Toy Story.
Captain Underpants is based on Dav Pilkey's popular book series that focuses on two fourth graders who write comic books, when they accidentally bring their character to life through a hypnosis accident involving their megalomaniacal principal.
Kein Hart, Thomas Middleditch, and Ed Helms are joined by Schaal in the voice cast, and the film will be directed by David Soren from a script by Nick Stoller.
The film is slated for June 2, 2017.
