Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Middle school can be scary, just ask Greg Heffley who keeps a diary — I mean, journal — about the world of sixth grade in the hit book series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Whether he’s finding out how to avoid bullies or the cheese touch, Greg jots it all down.

In the new movie, the animated elements from the original cartoon combine with live action, bringing the words from the book series to life. Greg learns how to survive middle school through funny scenes about learning how to wrestle and analyzing his popularity rank among the squiggly-drawn classmates he writes about. Based on the series written by author Jeff Kinney, Diary of a Wimpy Kid stars Zachary Gordon as Greg.

Read exclusive interviews with author Jeff Kinney — who talks about what it’s like to take the movie from a cartoon, to a book series to the big screen and — the star of the film, Zach Gordon — who told us what it’s like to play Greg and survive his own first year of middle school in real life.
