The Home Alone franchise remains timeless as a series of American Christmas family comedy films featuring the actions of a young boy defending himself and his home from invaders and thugs unbeknownst to his family. The Home Alone reboot movie is close to completion as confirmed by star Kenan Thompson.
The reboot of the series has been in development for some time. In an interview, Kenan Thompson of SNL fame, who will be appearing in the Home Alone reboot, confirmed the good news.
“It was a long shoot. It started in Canada and got shut down and then came back around because of the pandemic. It’s been very splotchy as far as trying to get it done is concerned. I think they’re getting very close to finishing it. I did ADR for it recently, so that’s usually one of the last steps. So, it’s coming out.”
Dan Mazer will direct the Home Alone reboot for Disney+, with Day and Streeter Seidel writing the script. The cast includes Archie Yates, Rob Delaney, Ellie Kemper, Ally Maki, Pete Holmes, Kenan Thompson, Chris Parnell, Timothy Simons, Andy Daly, and Mikey Day.
We are excited about the reboot and are sure going to be nostalgic seeing the bad guys running into one booby trap after another, with comedic results. The release date has yet been announced for the upcoming film.
