While old is gold when it comes to classics by Disney; Home Alone and its sequel are two of the best movies that came out in the recent times.
Recently, it was announced by Disney that among many other movies, the classic Christmas movie 'Home Alone' will be on the receiving end of the reboot stick, which is plowing through plenty of franchises at the moment. Going by popular reports, the movies that are slated for remakes by Disney are 'Home Alone', 'A Nightmare Before Christmas', 'Night at the Museum', and 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid'. These movies are going to stream in the latest streaming service, Disney+.
CEO Bob Iger says Home Alone, Night at the Museum and Diary of a Wimpy Kid will be "reimagined" for Disney+.— Ashley Carter (@AshleyLCarter1) 6 August 2019
Did I hear that right?
While a lot of people might think that the old is indeed gold when it comes to classics by Disney; Home Alone and its sequel are two of the best movies that came out in the recent times, but it won't hurt to see how it goes. These movies are also shown on TV at Christmas every year without fail, so they not really left the public's eye and that way, the movies are ready for a reboot.

The star of the original Home Alone films, Macaulay Culkin, has gone to great lengths to give us a sneak peek and a preview of what the 2019 reboot of the 90s films would look like, though. The audience once again got to see what a grown-up Kevin McAllister would deal with the same situations now. He is seen living on Mac and Cheese that he doesn't get to eat because he’s rudely interrupted by two burglars.
Him, being 38-years-old decided to show us what the past 28 years have done to Kevin McAllister. He captioned the post saying, "This is what an updated Home Alone would actually look like." Of course, if a ten-year-old was left home alone today, they’d probably just text their mum and dad to let them know and might go out later to play Fornite while they wait it out.
The actor followed up his tweet with another, saying: ‘Hey @Disney, call me!’ But, a lot of people has been questioning, can we have a follow-up movie instead of a reboot? It probably wouldn’t be such a cheerful Christmas film, but I think I will watch it.
