“Home Alone” reboot confirmed for Christmas release
A brand new Home Alone film is coming to Disney Plus just in time for Christmas.
The streaming service has officially announced Home Sweet Home Alone, which is intended as the first film in a reboot of the franchise.
Produced by 20th Century Studios, Metro reports that the upcoming project boasts a star-studded cast, consisting of Archie Yates, Ellie Kemper, Rob Delaney, Aisling Bea, Kenan Thompson, Tim Simons, Aly Maki and many more.
Disney Plus has also shared images of the cast holding up the title of the film across social media, and confirmed it will be available to stream from November 12.
This is the sixth overall title in the Home Alone series, with the first instalment released in 1990, with Maculay Culkin playing the role of Kevin McAllister.
The success of the movie spawned a 1992 sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, and a third film, released in 1997, introduced an entirely new cast, but with a similar plot to the previous instalments.
