We could stop to debate whether or not a Home Alone sequel or reboot is necessary. And we would be wasting time because, anyway, they have already done it: Home Sweet Home Alone takes up the proposal of this Christmas classic to present us with a new story, with some other guide to the film starring Macaulay Culkin. On this occasion, the production is headed by Archie Yates (JoJo Rabbit) under the direction of Dan Mazer, and this week we were able to enjoy his first preview. It will be released in the Disney + Spain catalog on November 12.
Home Sweet Home Alone, this time with Archie Yates
Once again, the story goes back to the same plot: a family that, in the chaos that results from preparing for vacations and traveling to Tokyo, you end up forgetting one of your children at home. However, this time Kevin McCallister (Culkin) will not be our protagonist: it will be Max Mercer (Yates), who will soon enjoy the pleasant tranquility of being alone at home … although not for long.
While enjoying eating chocolates and playing as he pleases, Max discovers that he will have to deal with something else: he will have to defend his house from the arrival of a couple, whose intention is to steal a valuable relic that is in his house. More than 30 years after the original film, history repeats itself again: and the crazy homemade traps are back too.

Yates will not be at the forefront just defending this production: Ellie Kemper, Rob Delaney, Timothy Simons, Ally Maki, Aisling Bea and Kenan Thompson join him in the cast, along with Pete Holmes, Katie Beth Hall, Max Ivutin and Nick Allan. Hutch Parker and Dan Wilson are in charge of production, while the libretto is signed by Mikey Day and Streeter Seidell. Macaulay Culkin was already in charge of imagining in his day what the reboot of Home Alone could be, but let’s hope that Home Sweet Home Alone exceed expectations. We remind you that it reaches Disney + November 12.
