For better or for worse, we need to accept the fact that we are now living in the age of reboots. We’ve seen so many modern retelings of classic films in the recent years and it looks like there’s just no stopping the trend anytime soon.
Case in point, the House of Mouse has confirmed that they are planning to remake Home Alone, the beloved movie franchise about Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin), a smart kid who had to deal with burglars after accidentally getting separated from his family – not once but twice!
Disney will soon start working on a new Home Alone movie for their streaming service.
Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, said that they are “reimagining” the film for Disney+. So far, no details have been given about the cast or the remake’s release date but as early as now, it’s already drawing a lot of negative reactions from fans.
“Leave ‘Home Alone’ ALONE!”
As one fan put it:
“Home Alone is a classic. Just leave it alone.”
Another pointed out that the movie’s story may not be as effective as it was back then considering today’s modern conveniences.
The fan said:
“How you gonna remake #HomeAlone when 2019 Kevin can just text his Mom or catch an Uber?”
Eventually, the news reached Macaulay Culkin himself.
Now 38 years of age, the actor shared his hilarious reaction by posting a photo on social media and captioning it “This is what an updated Home Alone would actually look like,” adding “Hey @Disney, call me!”
Also, more reboots are in the works – including Night At The Museum.
In addition to Home Alone, the company is also planning to remake Night At The Museum, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and Cheaper By The Dozen.
