20th Century Studios (formerly named 20th Century Fox) is a major American movie studio that is the distributor for all four of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid live-action films. The opening for each film and their respective trailers feature an outlined version of the logo, matching the illustrations from the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series. It was purchased by Disney in 2019, changing its organization name.

After years of demands from fans wanting a film adaptation of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, 20th Century Studios decided to create a live-action movie. The studio and producers were writing down ideas for the film and found a director named Thor Freudenthal who owned a diary just like Greg Heffley. The studio eventually found actors and locations to start filming. Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2010 film) appeared in theaters on March 19, 2010, quickly becoming a hit despite mixed reviews. The studio went back to create a sequel with David Bowers chosen as the new director for the remainder of the live-action films. They released Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules (2011 film) on March 25, 2011, later finishing the trilogy with Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (2012 film) on August 3, 2012. All of the films in this trilogy received mixed reviews.

The studio would end the Wimpy Kid film series before returning in 2017 to make the infamous Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017 film) with a completely new cast. The movie was released on May 17, 2017, and it received heavy backlash, due to its “cringey” YouTube plot and most notably the replacement of Devon Bostick as Rodrick Heffley in favor of Charlie Wright. The studio has not been associated with Diary of a Wimpy Kid since then, with Disney's animated adaptations starting in 2021.
