Diary of a Wimpy Child – Friday December 3

The First Book in Jeff Kinney’s Global Hit Series Comes to Disney + in All-New Animated Adventure Diary of a Wimpy Child. Greg Heffley is a lean but ambitious kid with an active imagination and big plans to become rich and famous – he must survive college first. To make matters worse, Rowley, Greg’s adorable best friend, seems to go through life and get it all done without even trying! As the details of his hilarious – and often disastrous – attempts to fit in fill the pages of his journal, Greg learns to appreciate true friends and the satisfaction that comes with standing up for what’s right.

The rescue – Friday December 3

The rescue tells the unexpected story that turned the world upside down in 2018: the daring rescue of twelve boys and their trainer from the depths of a flooded cave in northern Thailand. The rescue highlights the high-risk world of cave diving, the incredible courage and compassion of the rescuers, and the shared humanity of the international community who have come together to save the boys.
