    • I should wait until the movie comes out to give out my thoughts. Honestly, the trailer failed to get a laugh out of me.

      Awesome that there making an updated movie diary! I will definitely be buying it, as I got an original first edition movie diary that is in like new condition from the used bookstore at my library (which still has it's 30% off cover price from Target store sticker on it!), I recently bought the most recent released version with info on the first 3 movies from Barnes and Noble from there online website that is in the middle of shipping to my house and I'll be buying the new book when it comes out.

    • I would love to see how the Long Haul film adapation will work out since The Long Haul was my favorite book. I'm concerned that because of the amount of hate the film is getting all because of the recasting, it might get cancelled. Or nobody's gonna want to see it, and then the film will do bad in the box office, and 20th Centruy Fox would put an end to the DoaWK film franchise.

      Your right. Hopefully the film does well, because I really enjoy the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books and movies. And if the new movie isn't very popular, everyone who does see it will have to watch it more than once in theaters to help box office sales... if they can afford it.

    • Or if you take a look at the bright side, if their live action films don't do well they might  start making it animated like what they were suppose to do with the Cabin Fever adaption..

    • I didn't know #NotMyRodrick was a thing until a friend on Twitter retweeted a picture about it.

    • Sorry if you don't like the new Rodrick's actor, but the filming for the new movie is already over, and the new actor was originally chosen as the previous actor had aged a lot and looks much different then he did at the time of the previous movie, Dog Days.

    • I didn't say I hated the actor, I just thought the trend that was going around Twitter was ridiculous.

      Same here. I think the trend is kind of ridiculous also. And I know you didn't say you hated the actor, I am just letting people know why they wont get the original actor back, at least in the new movie.

    • With the film being filmed in 2 months, do you guys have a feeling its gonna be short?

      Or did Kinney plan out the movie ideas before filming?

      I looked up the runtime on Google Search and it says it's 1 hour and 46 minutes, making it logner than the Dog Days and Rodrick Rules films. So it won't be a short movie.

    • I think the new movie will be worse the the book and the other movies. I think they should have at least kept the old parents like Frank from the first 3 movies. The new Rodrick looks way different from the original 3, Greg and Rowley look much younger than the original Greg.

      If they had kept any of the original cast, they would look noticably older. They chose a new cast because people age and they can't stop that, and it's been 5 years since the last movie was released. The series is supposed to be timeless. Also the people playing Greg and Rowley look just about as old as the original Greg and Rowley did in the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie.

    • I will NEVER see The Long Haul movie. Like, EVER!

        Loading editor
    • I want to see if they try to maintain its mixed reception. Or better yet I want to see some positives.

      I NEED TO SEE THIS FILM.

    • I just finished seeing the movie at my local theater less than 30 minutes from the time of typing and posting this reply on this discussion. I liked the movie. It had a few changes from the book and few things that weren't in it that were in the book it was based on, The Long Haul. I will not say what to try not to spoil the movie for anyone who has not seen it yet. Personally I did not find the movie very funny, but the movie wasn't really meant to be a comedy, it was meant to be based on a book about the Heffley family taking a road trip.

      It almost made you cry? Wow, you must have really like it then. Did you cry at the *spoiler alert* part where the photo book got stolen by the Beardos and Susan Heffley/mom got really sad about that and Greg apologized to her for what he had done?
