Head to Middle School in First Trailer for the Animated Diary of a Wimpy Kid

This morning brings our first look at the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie, this time taking an animated approach to the beloved books.

While Diary of a Wimpy Kid has had a number of films already, the first animated film (which fully captures the style of the original books) comes to Disney Plus in just a couple months. Today gives us our first look at it in action:

The first book in Jeff Kinney’s worldwide bestselling series comes to Disney+ in the all-new animated adventure “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.” 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.

Directed by Swinton Scott (“Futurama”) and written and produced by Jeff Kinney, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” features the voices of Brady Noon (“The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers”) as Greg Heffley, Ethan William Childress (“mixed-ish”) as Rowley Jefferson, and Chris Diamantopoulos (“Silicon Valley”) as Frank Heffley.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid streams to Disney Plus starting December 3, 2021.
