Disney+ has been busy promoting its big-budget shows based on popular IP like Marvel, Star Wars, and many more. Of course, the family-friendly company has not been wasting any time to also focus on some iconic stories for its younger streaming audience. Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney has made its way to the streaming service Disney+ as an animated film in 2021.
It’s sequel, Rodrick Rules, is about to hit Disney+. Yet, as revealed by the series creator Jeff Kinney in an interview with One Take News, they’re already working on a sequel based on The Last Straw. So, those hoping for Disney+ to spend more time on this adaptation are going to be happy to know there’s more to come.
Yeah, I don’t know how much I’m allowed to say but I will say that yes, The Last Straw is in the works and I’m hoping to do lots and lots of [animated Wimpy Kid films] over time.Jeff Kinney
The book series that this is based on first released back in 2007, and it’s spawned sixteen entries with the latest Diper Överlöde having released this October. So, it’s not too surprising that Kinney is excited to do a lot more. If the series remains as a staple for young kids to check out, he might just get his wish and Disney is no stranger to enjoying a long-running franchise based on a popular IP having a prominent spot on their platform.
