Next summer, DreamWorks Animation will release the Captain Underpants movie. The release date is set for July 2, 2017 and the timing coincides with the 20-year anniversary of the first Captain Underpants novel. Pilkey says meeting the first generation of Captain Underpants fans, now adults, is typically very rewarding. “Often they tell me that if it weren’t for these books, they wouldn’t be a reader today, or wouldn’t have gone on to graduate from college,” he says. Pilkey hopes his books will continue to make a difference in the lives of his fans and inspire them to read more. “It’s really all about making that connection that reading is fun,” he says. “That simple connection can lead to extraordinary places.”
