Captain Underpants

David SorenJoin us as we welcome alumnus David Soren, director of DreamWorks Animation’s new film Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, back to Sheridan.

On May 10, Soren is coming home to talk to students, faculty, staff and alumni about his work on the highly anticipated film. Since graduating in 1996, Soren has built an esteemed career. He created, wrote and directed Turbo (2013), and directed Merry Madagascar (2009). A DreamWorks veteran of 20 years, Soren has also worked on The Road to El Dorado, Chicken Run, Shrek and Shark Tale.

Now, he’s using his talents to bring Captain Underpants to life on screen. Based on the popular book series, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie is a raucously subversive comedy for the entire family that tells the story of two overly imaginative pranksters named George and Harold, who hypnotize their principal into thinking he’s a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants.
