Diary of a wimpy kid long haul

It was a long summer. If anyone could boast about this, it would be my best friend, Greg. He spent all his time on the boat with our other best friend, Rowley, who had been on the boat since he was a baby. Rowley would try to make friends on the boat, but they always seemed to say hello and then walk away as soon as they heard he was wimpy.


Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul is a 2017 American road comedy film written and directed by David Bowers and co-written by the books' author Jeff Kinney. It serves as a standalone sequel to 2012's Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, the fourth installment in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid film series and the final live-action film in the franchise. It was based on the ninth book The Long Haul, with elements of seventh, eighth, and tenth books in the series.

It is also the only live-action installment in the series not to feature the cast members from the first three films as they outgrew their roles.After the release of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days in 2012, the film was described as the last live-action one in the franchise, with the original cast and crew indicating that were no plans for a fourth film. By 2016, a live-action adaptation of the ninth book, The Long Haul, was in development, with the aforementioned new cast. (Source:en.wikipedia.org)


Released on May 19, it grossed $40 million worldwide on a $22 million production budget and was negatively received from critics and especially the original fans of the first three movies for its "largely unfunny", as claimed by Rotten Tomatoes, humor and new cast (particularly, the hashtag #NotMyRodrick started trending as soon as the trailer was released in February). The film would later be the last one in the series to be produced by 20th Century Fox before the studio was acquired by Disney in 2019 and the last one before the series was rebooted into animated films, starting with the 2021 Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie on Disney+.

Following the release of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, the likelihood of a fourth live-action film was slim. In 2012, Jeff Kinney, the author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, had announced the possibility for an animated film to be based on Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever as the next installment. In an interview for Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Hard Luck, Kinney stated he was working with Fox on a half-hour special based on Cabin Fever, which was to be aired in late 2014, but as of 2019, it never came into fruition. In August 2018, CEO of 20th Century Fox Stacey Snider announced that a fully animated television series based on Diary of a Wimpy Kid was in development. On August 6, 2019, after the acquisition of 21st Century Fox by Disney, the project was confirmed to be still in development for the then-upcoming Disney+. (Source:en.wikipedia.org)
