Diary of a Wimpy Kid is back! Again!
An animated film adaptation based on the second novel in Jeff Kinney’s coming-of-age franchise will hit Disney+ this December. The announcement was made by Disney Plus’ official Twitter account.
This will be the second entry to debut on the streamer after the first installment in the rebooted series dropped earlier this year.
You can view the tweet, coupled with the first poster for the film below:
While no synopsis is available for the film, it will most likely follow the same storyline of the novel it’s based on.
That synopsis is as follows:
Secrets have a way of getting out, especially when a diary is involved.
Whatever you do, don’t ask Greg Heffley how he spent his summer vacation, because he definitely doesn’t want to talk about it.
As Greg enters the new school year, he’s eager to put the past three months behind him . . . and one event in particular.
Unfortunately for Greg, his older brother, Rodrick, knows all about the incident Greg wants to keep under wraps. But secrets have a way of getting out . . . especially when a diary is involved.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules chronicles Greg’s attempts to navigate the hazards of middle school, impress the girls, steer clear of the school talent show, and most important, keep his secret safe.
