This past weekend, we got to view Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie and my kids had a few friends over for a sleepover to celebrate. Fox Home Entertainment sent us a box of Epic goodies: overnight duffel bags, fleece blankets, Make Your Own Comic Book, color pencils, whoopee cushions, easy readers, activity books, and capes to make the night monumental.
Captain Underpants came out on digital HD on August 29th. It will be on DVD and Hero Edition Blue-ray and 4K Ultra HD September 12. For a limited time, a wearable cape is offered with the purchase of the Hero Edition Blu-ray or 4K Ultra HD.
