Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn’t had one.

“Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” directed by Independent Spirit Award-winner Miguel Arteta (“The Good Girl,” “Cedar Rapids,” “Youth in Revolt”) from a screenplay by Rob Lieber, is a 21 Laps Entertainment/Jim Henson Company production.

Stone Center Recognition of Merit, a Georgia Children’s Book Award, and distinction as a Reading Rainbow book. The book’s success spawned three sequels: “Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday” (1978), “Alexander, Who’s Not (Do You Hear Me?  I Mean It!) Going to Move” (1995), and the brand-new “Alexander, Who’s Trying His Best to Be the Best Boy Ever” (2014).

· The 1972 original, which has never before been the subject of a feature film, was adapted to the small screen in 1990 as an HBO animated musical with music by composer Charles Strouse.. In 1998, Viorst  collaborated with composer Shelley Markham on a stage musical of “Alexander” for the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
