The Story of The Wiggles will follow the group’s rise to fame – from their formation in 1991 to their ultimate triumph as the world’s most popular children’s group.

Amazon Prime Video have announced a feature documentary about The Wiggles, set to premiere next year on the streaming giant. Pictured: Sam Moran, Anthony Field, Murray Cook and Jeff Fatt.

Fans can expect a nostalgic trip down memory lane thanks to extensive archive footage of the The Wiggles’ early performances.

The news comes after The Wiggles have earned themselves credentials among the  older, hipper audience aside from than their regular audience of toddlers.

Greg Page, Murray Cook, Jeff Fatt and Anthony Field formed the children’s band in 1991.

Blue Wiggle Anthony said he grew emotional as he watched early performance footage of the band in preparation for the upcoming film.

‘Looking through the archives has brought back so many incredible memories,’ he told Variety.

‘From our first shows for 30 children, to touring America and the world, playing to arenas…It’s been such an incredible and evolving journey and we can’t wait to share our story with everyone.’

The movie will be directed by experienced documentary filmmaker Sally Aitkin, who also made the popular film about Aussie movie icon David Stratton, titled A Cinematic Life (2017).

‘Naturally, there’s a huge sense of responsibility to do justice to the story of Australia’s most iconic and successful band,’ she said.

‘ I have been stunned and deeply moved by many aspects of their story.’

It was recently announced that The OG Wiggles will play at the Falls Festival in January next year.

And in July, the iconic group ditched their skivvies for street cool outfits when they landed their first Rolling Stone cover.

‘The last two years have been some of their best in history,’ print editor of Rolling Stone AU/NZ Jake Challenor gushed over the cover story.

‘The Wiggles are more relevant than ever, which is exactly why pop culture icons like Lil Nas X and The Kid Laroi are embracing them.

‘The Wiggles proved they were at their best in January when they topped Triple J’s annual Hottest 100 list for 2021 with their cover of Tame Impala’s psychedelic 2012 hit, Elephant.

Without a doubt, 2023 is officially the Year of The Wiggles.’
