And while that is clearly not the case - groundhogs typically live to be nine to 14 years old in captivity - you won't soon be able to discover information about how many Punxsutawney Phils there have been.

Not much else is known about Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son, so we won't know if it's any good until we hear some first-hand reviews, but it has a trailer which you can check out below.

Punxsutawney is a town with a population of just under 6,000 people in Jefferson County, about one and a half hours northeast of Pittsburgh.

The Pennsylvania groundhog isn't the only weather-predicting groundhog residents look to for predicted forecasts.

The festival takes place in Barclay Square in the downtown area, home to late Victorian and Romanesque Revival architecture.

Who Made Punxsutawney Phil Famous?

During the conference, Samsung said that it would begin the mass production of foldable Infinity Display in the coming months. Samsung's logo is placed on the back of both devices, and as you can see, the back side of both phones is also curved.

Groundhog Day is a part of American and Canadian tradition that has been celebrated for hundreds of years!

You can watch on the Visit Pennsylvania website. Onlookers were bundled up Saturday to chant Phil's name so he would emerge from his hole in a tree stump.

And Punxsutawney Phil is no ordinary groundhog.

In Punxsutawney, Pa., Punxsutawney Phil also didn't see his shadow, predicting an early spring.

But grey clouds mean spring has officially sprung.

However, Punxsutawney Phil doesn't have the best track record when it comes to predicting the weather, he's only been right approximately 40% of the time in the last decade according to CNN. By 7:16 a.m., Phil's followers were receiving word from the Inner Circle Vice President Jeff Lundy that they were (unofficially) a part of the largest Groundhog Day crowd ever.
