Disney to remake ‘Home Alone’

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Disney has announced it’s going to remake Home Alone for its new streaming service.

The studio’s CEO Bob Iger said there will also be “reimaginations” of Night At the Museum, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Cheaper By the Dozen.

However it’s still unclear if these family flicks will be reimagined as features or as TV shows.

Disney now owns the franchises after it bought the film studio 20th Century Fox.

The new service Disney+ launches in the US in November and is expected to hit the UK next year.

The Christmas classic starring Macaulay Culkin was originally released back in 1990.

In the meantime, the live-action remake of ‘The Lion King’ crossed $1 billion worldwide.

Along with Aladdin, it’s the second Disney-branded live-action release to reach the $1 billion threshold this year and the sixth ever to do so, following Alice in Wonderland, Beauty and the Beast, and the second and fourth Pirates of the Caribbean films. It is also The Walt Disney Studios’ fourth billion dollar release this year.
