We’re getting a first look at Disney+ original film Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made today. The movie will be available on the streaming service on February 7th.
Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made will screen in the Kids section of the Sundance Film Festival later this month. Created especially for the younger independent film fans, the Kids section is programmed in cooperation with Utah Film Center, which presents the annual Tumbleweeds Film Festival, Utah’s premiere film festival for children and youth.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Tom McCarthy, Disney+’s Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, based on the best-selling book of the same name (buy at Amazon), follows the hilarious exploits of our quirky, deadpan hero, Timmy Failure, who, along with his 1,500-pound polar bear partner Total, operates Total Failure Inc., a Portland detective agency.
An elementary school oddball, the clueless but confident Timmy (Winslow Fegley) must navigate the world of adults around him, including his overburdened mother (Ophelia Lovibond), her well-meaning boyfriend (Kyle Bornheimer), his teacher/nemesis (Wallace Shawn) and a school-mandated guidance counselor (Craig Robinson), all in his quest to become the best detective in the world.
Directed by Tom McCarthy, who won an Oscar for his Spotlight screenplay, the film was written by McCarthy & Stephan Pastis based on the book by Pastis. The producers are Jim Whitaker, p.g.a., and Tom McCarthy, p.g.a., with Michael Bederman and Kate Churchill serving as executive producers.
