TRAILER: The Spooky Tale of Captain Underpants: Hack-A-Ween
When mean Principal Krupp and evil boy-genius Melvin make Halloween illegal and institute“Hall-no-Ween,” George and Harold team up with their friends to hack their favorite holiday, creating Hack-a-ween. The kids wear disguises instead of costumes, carve cabbages instead of pumpkins, and get snacks instead of candy. The hacked holiday is a huge hit, so when Krupp and Melvin make even more trouble, the kids realize that in order to really save Halloween they will have to negotiate with the enemy.
Now that you’ve got the setup, the exclusive clip below features Hack-A-Ween Oreeuntashun! (Say it out loud and it will make sense. That’s right. You got it.) In this clip, George and Harold play the viral video they’ll send out to get all the neighborhood kids on board. We’ll also see Principal Krupp and Melvin’s villainous ways of destroying Halloween.
All this, plus plenty of Gooch cameos that we’re still laughing about.
It’s both genius and ridiculous all at the same time — perfect for some family fun.
Check out this exclusive clip from The Spooky Tale of Captain Underpants: Hack-A-Ween, and set your alarm to tune in to Netflix on October 8th, or any time this month.
