Word in town is that Disney plans on rebooting the Home Alone franchise for its home streaming service, Disney +. The announcement was made by Disney boss, Bob Iger.
Disney acquired rights to the classic Christmas franchise, which features a young Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister - a boy left to fend for himself, by buying 20th Century Fox in March this year.
The cast for the Home Alone reboot hasn’t been disclosed yet and we’re not too sure if Culkin will make an appearance in the reboot or not, though he played an adult Kevin in an advert for Google last year.
Iger also plans on rebooting other Fox properties such as Night at the Museum, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Cheaper by the Ocean. However, no additional information has been given yet nor has it be decided if the reboots will only be available on Disney + or will get a theatrical release too.
Disney+ will launch in the US in November, and will feature movies and TV shows from the company's huge back catalogue, as well as original series and reboots, including a live-action/CGI remake of Lady and the Tramp starring Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux.
