Author Jeff Kinney has a holiday-themed Wimpy Kid animation project in the pipeline. In an interview with School Library Journal, he revealed that the storyline will be loosely based on book six, Cabin Fever.

Kinney elaborated: “it departs and it follows its own beat, I guess you could say. It will have new material.” He hopes to have it finished and ready for release sometime in 2014.

Besides developing this animated film, Kinney will also be busy with a book tour promoting the eight installment of the The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Amulet Books will publish Hard Luck on November 5th.
