Disney+ announced today that an all-new animated adventure Diary of a Wimpy Kid will begin streaming this holiday season, just in time for Christmas. They have also released a teaser trailer for the upcoming animated film to clebrate the announcement (included below)!
The all-new animated Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie will be based upon the first book in Jeff Kinney's bestselling series. To date Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid books have sold more than 250 million copies worldwide. Kinney serves as both the screenwirter and producer for the upcoming film. “This film feels like the book come to life, and it’s exciting to see Greg Heffley and his family and friends in their fully-animated glory. It is the Wimpy World in a way no one has seen before. Working on this movie, I feel like we have been sitting on a wonderful secret. I can’t wait to finally share it with the world!”
The new film will premiere exclusively on Disney+ December 3, 2021.
Greg Heffley is a scrawny but ambitious kid with an active imagination and big plans to be rich and famous – he just has to survive middle school first. To make matters worse, Greg’s lovable best friend Rowley seems to coast through life and succeed at everything without even trying! As details of his hilarious – and often disastrous – attempts to fit in fill the pages of his journal, Greg learns to appreciate true friends and the satisfaction that comes from standing up for what is right.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid is directed by Swinton Scott (Futurama) and written and produced by Jeff Kinney. The animated film includes the voices of Brady Noon (The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers), Ethan William Childress (mixed-ish) and Chris Diamantopoulos (Mickey Mouse).
