The latest adaptation of the popular kids’ book Diary of a Wimpy Kid comes to Disney+ on Friday, December 3. The computer-animated film is adapted by author Jeff Kinney from his book and is the fifth film based on the series, although this one is more a reboot than a continuation. Diary of a Wimpy Kid is about Greg Heffley, a scrawny but ambitious middle schooler with an active imagination who has his sights set on being rich and famous. He is envious of his best friend Rowley, loveable and kind, who seems to succeed at everything. Greg chronicles his often disastrous attempts at fitting in in his journal, which contributes to the film’s animation style. Read on for more on how to watch Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
