Yesterday, we reported that the next Disney+ Original movie, Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, will be premiered at this month’s Sundance Film Festival.  And it seems we won’t have to wait too long to see the film on Disney+, as it will be coming to Disney+ on Friday February 7th 2020.

“Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made,” is a live-action kids’ movie that adults will find entertaining as well. “Disney hasn’t made a film like this in quite a while,” says director Tom McCarthy. “It is part independent film, part classical, and it breaks some rules and presents a character that we haven’t seen represented before.”

“The central message of Timmy Failure is to be true to who you are. No matter how unique you are, how different you are, be true to who you are,” says producer Jim Whitaker.

“Everyone who worked on this film came at it from different backgrounds and none of us had really made a movie for children before,” continues McCarthy. “We were excited to try and elevate that as much as possible and play it and experience it as Timmy does…that’s what we set out to do, and I’m really happy with how it turned out.”


Timmy Failure is the president, founder, and CEO of Total Failure, Inc., detective agency. With his partner, Total, a 1,500-pound polar bear, Timmy strives to keep the streets of Portland safe by solving seemingly unsolvable mysteries like finding missing backpacks and thwarting the plans of a nefarious criminal gang.

Though he is focused on finding a new global headquarters, he endures school, where he must contend with his fellow students and his teacher and nemesis, Mr. Crocus. While he is on a case, the “Failure Mobile,” his mother’s off-limits Segway scooter and his main source of transportation, disappears.

Interpreting the theft as part of a secret plan devised by his adversaries, he begins a search that leads him through a series of misadventures that ultimately threaten the existence of his agency.

Based on the best-selling books by Stephan Pastis, who also co-wrote the screenplay, and directed by award-winning Sundance Film Festival alumnus Tom McCarthy, this heartwarming and entertaining film celebrates the idea that being different isn’t a bad thing.
