Information about ‘Home Alone’ mayhem returns in Disney+ ‘Home Sweet Home Alone’ trailer
Christmas has come early this season with the official trailer release of “Home Sweet Home Alone,” the Disney+ reboot of the original 1990 classic holiday flick, “Home Alone.”
This Christmastime comedy centers around 10-year-old Max Mercer (played by “Jojo Rabbit” star Archie Yates) who is accidentally left behind by his family as they leave for vacation and ends up facing off against inexperienced robbers Pam (Ellie Kemper) and Jeff (Rob Delaney) in defense of his home.
The trailer for this new film suggests that “Home Sweet Home Alone” will be less like a follow-up film and more like a beat-for-beat remake of the John Hughes original starring Macaulay Culkin. Yates’s character is already seen hitting all the familiar beats like gorging himself on junk food Al Pacino-style, taking down Santa-clad invaders with impressive Nerf guns, setting elaborate house traps, doling out all the crotch hits one could ever expect to see and more.
But not only does “Home Sweet Home Alone” appear to honor the original film in its storyline and execution, it directly brings back old favorite characters like Kevin’s big brother. Devin Ratray, who played Buzz in the original, makes a brief cameo in the trailer as a cop with a badge that says “McAllister.”
The first new installment of the beloved “Home Alone” franchise since the 2012 ABC Family movie “Home Alone: The Holiday Heist,” “Home Sweet Home Alone” is written by Mikey Day and Streeter Seidell (“Saturday Night Live”) and directed by Dan Mazer (“Dirty Grandpa”).
