Following the trailer from earlier this month, Disney+ has provided us with the first Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made clip and 10 new photos as well. You can view the Mistakes Were Made clip below, and you’ll find the photos in list form underneath or in slideshow format in the gallery.
Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made screened 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.
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.
Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made will be available on Disney+ starting on February 7th.
