Steve Porter / April 9, 2017

Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a satirical fiction novel for children and teenagers written and illustrated by Jeff Kinney that was released on April 1st, 2007. The book went on to become a huge success and there are 11 books that make up the series in total.


Officially, there are three films in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid franchise. The first was released in 2010, the second “Rodrick Rules” came out in 2011, and the third “Dog Days” was released in 2012. You may find an animated film on IMDB which shows it was released in 2016 as “Cabin Fever” with a runtime of 1 hour and 1 minute. The film was directed by Amahri, but after a bit of research, we couldn’t find any evidence of the film actually existing> Perhaps it was a fan film that the owners of the copyright had stricken from the Internet.  



So, here we are today, the latest official installment has a title and a trailer. Let’s talk a little bit about the Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul. The film’s directed by David Bowers and the screenplay comes to us from Jeff Kinney & Bowers. We’ve got Charlie Wright, Alicia Silverstone, Tom Everett Scott, and Jason Drucker starring in the movie. There’s currently no rating for the film, but we suspect it will most likely be PG like the others.


The Heffley family goes on a roadtrip to Meemaw’s place to celebrate her 90th birthday. Greg hatches a scheme to get to a video game convention and the family adventure turns into an experience they will never forget. This looks fun and utterly ridiculous in a kid safe, family friendly way, so set a reminder for the 19th of May, 2017, and get ready to get Wimpy.
