The new Home Alone trailer has finally been released for the latest sequel to the Home Alone franchise. Here’s everything you need to know about Home Sweet Home Alone …
As the holiday season approaches, there really is no better way to get into the holiday spirit than to watch some of the best Christmas movies on Hulu.
However, a new addition to the Christmas movies on Disney Plus should thrill fans of the Home Alone franchise as a brand new movie is set to release just in time for Christmas!
The Home Alone series has always had a special place in our hearts as one of the most iconic party films of all time, and the new trailer for the film promises to be just as fantastic as the first three films. . So here’s everything you need to know about this new movie titled, Home Sweet Home Alone …
What is the plot of the new Home Alone and how will it be different from the original?
This plot takes place in the same universe as the three original films. This means that the plot, while similar, will not be a simple remake of the original films starring Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister.
The plot seems to follow a similar narrative to the early films and follows a story about a Christmas home invasion and a young boy who is left to defend the house from burglars.
One big change in this movie is that the main protagonist is English, whereas previous incarnations of this main character were American. The burglars in this new movie are also a married couple, which is a key change from the original movies.
New Trailer Home Alone
A trailer for the Home Sweet Home Alone movie was released on October 12, 2021. The trailer shows that the new movie will follow a similar format to the two original films, but instead will feature Archie Yates in a Kevin McCallister-like role.
New casting of Home Alone
At the head of the cast is Archie Yates who will play Max Mercer, who is accidentally left at home by his parents as the family travels to Tokyo. Many fans will recognize Archie as Yorkie, JoJo’s best friend in the Oscar-winning film JoJo Rabbit (2019).
Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney will play married couple Pam and Jeff Fritzovski who attempt to rob Max’s house in order to steal a precious heirloom.
Irish comedian Aisling Bea, who starred opposite Paul Rudd in Netflix’s Living with Yourself, will play Max’s mother Carol Mercer.
Other cast members include Kenan Thompson as Gavin, Ally Maki as Mei, Pete Holmes as Blake Mercer, Chris Parnell as Uncle Stu, Timothy Simons as Hunter, Andy Daly as Mike and Mikey Day as a priest.
Will Macaulay Culkin feature in the Home Alone remake?
There have been many rumors that Macaulay Culkin will return to reprise his classic role as Kevin McCallister.
The fact that this movie is set in the same universe and that the role of Buzz McCallister is being taken over, by the same actor, are both promising signs that the famous child actor could return to the role.
However, Macaulay Culkin also quit acting at the age of 15 and only returned to his acting career almost a decade later, at the age of 24. Since then, the actor has been very selective about which movies and TV shows he stars in, so he’s not sure if he would want to reprise a role he played almost 30 years ago.
His involvement in the film has not been confirmed by Disney or the star so for now, just keep your fingers crossed!
Will anyone else from the original cast feature in the Home Alone reboot?
Devin Ratray will reprise his role as Buzz McCallister in the new Home Sweet Home Alone movie.
Buzz McCallister is the older brother of Kevin McCallister and played a key role in Home Alone (1990) and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992).
In the new trailer for the film, Buzz has grown up working as a police officer who appears to be investigating the heist that took place during the film.
