Disney is bringing their own original movie adaptation of Diary of a Wimpy Kid to their Disney+ streaming service on December 3. A trailer was released that showcases all the mischief, embarrassment, and typical dreaded middle school life of Greg Heffley. It will be an animated feature in the original art style of the book it is based on – to me, that’s a bonus.
The story follows Greg as he attempts to survive middle school life without trauma along with his best friend, Rowley. However, it’s never as simple for Greg as it appears to be for Rowley, with chaos waiting at every corner. It’s a cute and funny coming-of-age story documented in a diary, oh excuse me, I meant “journal,” of a young boy who learns to deal with life’s struggles and discovers what’s really important in the process
