Jeff Kinney Talks ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules’

Disney continues its animated adaptation run of Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series with an all new sequel, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules. Based on the second book of the same name, Greg Heffley continues to navigate his adolescent life while also having to deal with the complications of growing up, including dealing with his rock-out-loud older brother Rodrick.

The Nerds of Color had a chance to talk to Kinney, who produced and wrote the screenplay, about what fans of the book can expect to see and what he hopes audiences take away after they watch it. Plus, we discuss what its like to see his drawings come to life in a way he never could have imagined.
