Here is the synopsis for Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules

The riotous antics of angst-ridden, disaster-prone middle school student Greg Heffley continue in “Diary
of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules,” focusing this time around on his complicated relationship with older
brother Rodrick. A spikey-haired high school student, Rodrick is lazy and undisciplined and spends way
too much time practicing with his rock band, Löded Diper. While he loves to torment Greg, he ultimately
has a deep affection for his younger brother.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules is now available to watch along with the first film on Disney+.
