Disney confirms home alone remake

Disney has announced they’re planning a remake of popular and hilarious children’s film home alone, along with other movies such as Cheaper by the dozen, Night at the museum and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Home alone used to be one of our most loved and enjoyed movies. It was a movie that was created and dedicated for kids and young adults, but it turned out to a piece of entertainment to be enjoyed by different generations of people.

Home alone was originally known as part of 20th Century Fox‘s merchandise until the company was bought by Diney in a $71 billion (£58 billion) merger.

According to Disney, the remakes for the named movies will be created for a “new generation”, and movie fans are already curious about the development within just 4 hours of the announcement by Disney.

According to Deadline, Bob Iger, CEO of Disney made the unexpected announcement during the Walt Disney Company’s earning call that a remake for the 1990 classic film will be made to stream on their new service called Disney+.

Home Alone earned over $470 million (£385m) worldwide and was the highest ever grossing live action comedy of all time in the United States, and held the record worldwide until The Hangover Part II’s release in 2011.

For almost 30 years, the 1990 classic film was also the highest-grossing Christmas film of all time until it was replaced by The Grinch in 2018.

Home Alone has been hailed as a holiday classic among audiences and is often ranked as one of the best Christmas films of all time.
