Disney will remake Home Alone for new streaming service

By Tribute on August 7, 2019 | 6 Comments

Home Alone (1990)
One of the greatest holiday films to date is trending nearly three decades later, after Disney released ground-breaking news today about the beloved classic.

Disney’s CEO Bob Iger announced that the ’90s Christmas favorite, Home Alone, will get a reboot.

Back in March, Disney announced that they would acquire 21st Century Fox’s assets after they scored a $71.3 billion deal. Now, with the rights to do so, Disney has full intentions of remaking the holiday gem Home Alone, the film that propelled Macaulay Culkin to childhood stardom.

The new Home Alone will eventually be available on Disney’s own streaming platform, Disney+, sometime after it launches in November of this year.

This is not the only remake in the works. Disney+ also plans on rebooting family comedies such as Night at the Museum, Cheaper by the Dozen and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

    No one is asking for a Home Alone remake. and to be honest, I’m not sure it would work in today’s environment. It’s very much a product of its time.

    And how about they just give us “Cheaper by the dozen 3” or “Night at the Museum 4” these films dont need to be rebooted.

    I honestly think these movie classics should be rebooted. Disney is just trying to make a quick buck. My message to Disney, think outside the box and inside for that matter. Don’t take the easy way out. Come up with new ideas. Disney has made some great films but as of late, questionable. Not impressed.

    These movies shouldn’t be rebooted! Keep the political correctness of today, “not enough minorities talk”, and SJW’s AWAY!!!

    Home Alone 3 was the best. Perhaps the twist this time will be an adult Kevin leaving his own child home alone and Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell are the crooks trying to break into the house.
