Because this Chris Columbus, John Hughes holiday classic apparently needed a reboot, Disney+ has released the first trailer for “Home Sweet Home Alone.” We’re…really not sure how we feel about it, especially after seeing this video.
The official synopsis from Disney+ for the film reads:
“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.”
“Home Sweet Home Alone” stars Ellie Kemper (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt“), Rob Delaney (“Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw“), Archie Yates (“Jojo Rabbit“), Aisling Bea (“This Way Up“), Kenan Thompson (“Saturday Night Live“), Tim Simons (“Veep“), Pete Holmes (“Crashing“), Devin Ratray (the original Buzz from “Home Alone“), Ally Maki (“Toy Story 4“), and Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live).
Dan Mazer directs from a screenplay by Mikey Day & Streeter Seidell. It’s set to hit the House of Mouse streaming service November 12th, 2021.
