Succeeded by The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary: The Next Chapter

The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary is a book about how the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie was made. The book was released on March 16, 2010. In this book, you will find out how Greg Heffley started, how the whole movie was made, where the movie was filmed, and other aspects of the movie. The book's color is white. Also, the book features a scrapbook at the end which features scenes from the movie. It is dedicated to Zachary Gordon and Robert Capron. There is a re-print of the book about how the Rodrick Rules movie is made along with the first movie as well. Unlike the usual Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, the texture is different.

The original release had 199 pages, the updated version with Rodrick Rules has 215, and the second updated version with Dog Days has 247. The Long Haul, like the first release, also has 199 pages.

Rodrick Rules Edition[edit]

A new and updated version of the book was released on February 15, 2011. The new edition has pages a few pages of how the second movie, Rodrick Rules, was created. It includes pictures from the movie, and behind the scenes pictures.
