Watch: Disney+ Unveils Trailer and Poster for New ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules’ Movie

Spawned from Jeff Kinney’s insanely popular kids book series featuring the hilarious antics of Greg Heffley and his eccentric family and friends, a new animated feature based on 2008’s second book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Roderick Rules, is coming to Disney+ on December 2. 

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules

To get fans into the proper mood for kooky suburban misadventures, Disney+ just delivered a wild trailer and key poster art for Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules. Also offered up is the original anthem from the movie, Can You Smell Us Now, written and produced by Jon Levine, with lyrics by Jeff Kinney, and performed by Jimmy Tatro.

A live-action adaptation of this same book was released back in 2011, directed by David Bowers. Here’s the official synopsis for Disney+’s new animated film:

“The riotous antics of angst-ridden, disaster-prone middle school student Greg Heffley continue in Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, focusing this time around on his complicated relationship with older brother Rodrick. A spikey-haired high school student, Rodrick is lazy and undisciplined and spends way too much time practicing with his rock band, Löded Diper. While he loves to torment Greg, he ultimately has a deep affection for his younger brother. “

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules is directed by Luke Cormican (Teen Titans Go!) and was written and produced by Jeff Kinney. It streams on Disney+ starting December 2 and showcases the vocal talents of Brady Noon (The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers), Ethan William Childress (mixed-ish), Edward Asner (Up), Chris Diamantopoulos (Silicon Valley), Erica Cerra (Power Rangers), and Hunter Dillon (Deadpool 2).
