Enjoying Home Alone was a crucial part of growing up in the ’90s. The classic Christmas movie made Macaulay Culkin one of the most significant names of the 90s. Disney is seeking to capture that same buzz of the original with an “updated” version of the movie.
According to ET, Bob Iger confirmed that we are getting a Home Alone reboot via Disney’s impending streaming service, Disney+. Iger called the upcoming reboot a reimagined version “for a new generation,” while remaining pretty tight-lipped around details surrounding the reboot.
When the 38-year-old Culkin heard the news of a Home Alone reboot, he took to Twitter to show the world what he believes that an updated Home Alone would look like.
Culkin shared a hilarious picture of himself posing on a couch equipped with plated takeout, a laptop, and also wearing a very questionable outfit.

After tweeting, people started replying to Culkin’s picture with their thoughts on the Home Alone reboot.
The ONLY "Updated Home Alone" I want, is to see Macaulay as the intruder. Kevin grew up, failed at life, became a common thief and now gets to walk a mile in Marv and Harry's shoes…But his knowledge allows him to kill the kid and get away… A real family story… pic.twitter.com/gsozpzhh2E— John Douglas (@SomeGuyFromCNY) August 7, 2019
Now that Disney has access to an extensive catalog of Fox titles after the acquisition of Fox this past March, it looks like we’re in for more reboots aside from just Home Alone. According to People, Disney CEO Bob Iger said that Disney will also remake other classics like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and Night at the Museum.
The Disney+ streaming platform is set to launch in November for $6.99 monthly. You can also bundle your Disney+ subscription with Hulu and ESPN for an additional $6 monthly.
