Today, Disney+ released the trailer for Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which begins streaming this holiday season. Can Greg Heffley survive middle school and achieve his dreams of being rich and famous? It looks like he’s off to a rocky start? And not the Balboa kind. They captioned their post reminding everyone, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Official Disney+ Trailer. Here’s what you need to know: don’t get the cheese touch! Stream Diary of a #WimpyKid, an all-new Original Movie on December 3 on @disneyplus. ????”
Fans who grew up with Greg are pumped to see their childhood buddy again! One exclaims, “I’m pretty excited!!! I love how the original style fits so well in screen!!!!” Another says, “Yesss!!!

Revisiting their childhood memories has gotten everyone excited. “obsessed with the other movies but the animated version is so magnificent!!! I love how they’re exactly like they are in the books and the fact it looks so realistic but unrealistic at the same time. You killed it and I am so excited , this stuff is timeless!!!” However, most had the question, “We are not getting the cheese touch when watching this??????” I’m not sure what the cheese touch is, but it sounds like it needs to be a avoided at all costs.
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.
