As we announced in the spring, the third Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie is going to be released August 3, 2012. The movie is a combination of the 3rd and 4th Diary of a Wimpy Kid books (Last Straw and Dog Days).
You can see the official movie trailer below. It starts out with Greg getting into his usual embarrassing trouble by losing his swim trunks on the diving board at the public pool. It ends with a confession he probably should not have made.
My 11-year-old daughter says “It looks like a very kid friendly movie that is humorous for all ages. It would be a good movie for a family night.”
Filming for the 3rd Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie (Dog Days) is now completed. The plot follows both the 3rd and 4th Wimpy Kid books, The Last Straw and Dog Days. School is out for summer and Greg’s plans do not quite go as expected. Familiar faces are back playing characters such as Greg, Rodrick, Susan and Frank Heffley, Rowley Jefferson, and Fregley.
The movie is in post-production and is scheduled for an August 3, 2012, release. You can read more at IMDB.com.
Great news for Diary of a Wimpy Kid fans! Abram’s Amulet Books has announced that author Jeff Kinney will be publishing another Wimpy Kid Book, the 7th in the series. The book is not yet titled (and actually has not even all been written) but the image released has the tagline “Love Is In the Air.” We do know that the book will be about a school dance and a love interest for Greg or Rowley (or both!).
The 7th Wimpy Kid book will be released in the United States on November 13, 2012.
We’ve put together a whole collection of Diary of a Wimpy Kid Shirts from Amazon, eBay, Borders, and more. We just added new ones from StylinOnline.com but figured that we would post them here new as well so you don’t miss them. Here are some of our favorites. StylinOnline has really added a lot!
These shirts are all officially licensed Diary of a Wimpy Kid shirts that have been screen printed with an official Diary of a Wimpy Kid image. These Diary of a Wimpy Kid youth tshirts are usually made from 5oz. cotton tee shirt blanks.

The 6th book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series has been released! It is called Cabin Fever.
Here’s the official description:
“Greg Heffley is in big trouble. School property has been damaged, and Greg is the prime suspect. But the crazy thing is, he’s innocent. Or at least sort of.
The authorities are closing in, but when a surprise blizzard hits, the Heffley family is trapped indoors. Greg knows that when the snow melts he’s going to have to face the music, but could any punishment be worse than being stuck inside with your family for the holidays?”
Greg Heffley is any typical 6th grader in the 2nd Diary of a Wimpy Kid Movie, Rodrick Rules. Like any other siblings, they fight, until mom comes up with “Mom Bucks,” that they earn for bonding with each other. When mom, dad, and Manny go to a Water Park, Rodrick throws a party and Greg gets involved. But, what happens when they get caught, and Rodrick gets grounded from the Talent Show? Will Greg talk his parents into letting Rodrick play with his band, Loaded Diaper in the competition? Watch the movie to find out!
The 6th book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series has been announced! Set to be released on November 15, 2011, it will be called “Cabin Fever.” The cover shows Greg stuck in the house while it is snowing outside.
Jeff Kinney is releasing a revised and expanded edition of The Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book. The book has 16 more pages of full-color comics (for a total of 32 pages of comics) and 32 more interactive pages. The interactive pages ask kids things like “What was the best dream you ever had?” and “What was the worst thing you ever ate?”
The interactive journal is a great supplement to the book series because it helps kids express themselves and practice writing in a fun way that mirrors the way that Greg writes in the Wimpy Kid books. It will also make a nice keepsake to look back on when the child is older.
When is the Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2 Movie coming out? March 25, 2011! The movie is based on the second book in the Wimpy Kid series, Rodrick Rules. Familiar characters from the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie will be back including Greg (the Wimpy Kid), Rowley, Chirag, Manny, Fregley, Rodrick, and Patty.
We did a whole post about where you can buy Diary of a Wimpy Kid Shirts if you are serious about wanting to find them. I’ve never seen them locally except when Borders had special promotions, so you will have to order them online. Your best bet is StylinOnline.com but you can also find them on eBay. We’ve done the searching for you, so you can just click on our links and it will take you directly to them.
There are at least 4 different Diary of a Wimpy Kid Puzzles, each corresponding with 1 of the first 4 books. They are 200 pieces each and run about $10 each or 2 for $15.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid hats are hard to find because 1) only a couple of styles were made, 2) they were made for a limited time, and 3) they are sold out in most places. Check out our Diary of a Wimpy Kid Hat post for all of the places that we have been able to find them.
