As Disney gets ready for the launch of its streaming service Disney+, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that the reboots of many classics would be coming to the service.
And the classic Christmas comedy Home Alone is one of the movies getting a reboot for Disney+.
Actor Macaulay Culkin, who played Kevin in the first two movies, had an interesting take on the reboot.
Home Alone is a classic that most of us grew up watching, and rewatching. And even when they first released, its sequel(s) did not live up to the charm and humour of the original. Which explains why people thought that this time, leaving Kevin alone might just be the right thing:
Disney wants to reboot #HomeAlone Nobody wants this. Want proof? There are 4 sequels to Home Alone that nobody cares about.— sean brett (@BaconKnight) August 7, 2019
The first movie was perfect. No reboot or sequel will ever recapture the magic that was the orginal. pic.twitter.com/tvJMTiUJSl

I don't want a Home Alone reboot, I want a sequel with Catherine O'Hara and Macaulay Culkin abandoning the rest of the family to go on fabulous vacations— Ira thee Third (@ira) August 7, 2019
The only Home Alone reboot I would tolerate is a SEQUEL with @IncredibleCulk and Catherine O'Hara AND a John Williams Score about Kevin and Mrs. McCallister hunting down Joe Pesci or whatever his name was.— Alexander De Luca (@AlexanderDeLuca) August 7, 2019
Already getting mad at the HOME ALONE reboot with Kevin live-streaming his series of near-fatal pranks on the burglars, yet still somehow not being able to get in touch with his family or the police— Patrick Monahan (@pattymo) August 7, 2019
