It’s one of the world's favourite classic Christmas movies and has held up since the '90s, and now Disney is set to release a reboot of Home Alone ...
That’s right, there is a reboot of the iconic flick, titled Home Sweet Home Alone and it is out today!
The original Home Alone – which launched the career of child star Macaulay Culkin - was released more than 25 years ago and Disney chairman Bob Iger says that now is the perfect time for the movie to be "reimagined" for a "new generation".
While the reboot will take thematically from the original Home Alone movie, this time around it will follow "a mischievous and resourceful young boy who has been left behind while his family is in Japan for the holidays" Max Mercer - played by Jojo Rabbit star Archie Yates.
The likes of Ellie Kemper, Rob Delaney, Aisling Bea, Kenan Thompson, Tim Simons, Pete Holmes, Ally Maki, and Chris Parnell are also set to star in the film - as well as a cameo from Devin Ratray who played older brother Buzz in the original Christmas films.
The new movie, which is currently in post-production is directed by Dan Mazer - who is known for his work on titles such as Borat and I Give it a Year - and was written by Saturday Night Live duo Mikey Day and Streeter Seidell.
The 2021 Home Alone reboot - Home Sweet Home Alone - is out today, November 12 on Disney+ just in time for Christmas.
