John Hughes’ beloved holiday classic is getting a Disney reboot just in time for the holidays. On November 12th, exclusively on Disney+, Home Sweet Home Alone with debut based on a story by Hughes himself.
The new film stars Archie Yates as the kid left alone and comedians Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney as the thieves. Based on the trailer it looks more or less like a carbon copy of the 1990 Home Alone film starring Macaulay Culkin.
Max Mercer is a mischievous and resourceful young boy who has been left behind while his family is in Japan for the holidays. So when a married couple attempting to retrieve a priceless heirloom set their sights on the Mercer family’s home, it is up to Max to protect it from the trespassers…and he will do whatever it takes to keep them out. Hilarious hijinks of epic proportions ensue, but despite the absolute chaos, Max comes to realize that there really is no place like home sweet home.
