Christmas is here with Disney+ releasing the trailer for “Home Sweet Home Alone,” its reboot of the original 1990 classic “Home Alone.”
Replacing original star Macaulay Culkin is Jojo Rabbit star Archie Yates; he stars as Max Mercer, a mischievous and resourceful young boy who has been left behind while his family is in Japan for the holidays.
The trailer suggests that it will be less like a follow-up film and more like a beat-for-beat remake of the John Hughes-penned original starring Macaulay Culkin. Yates’ character is shown hitting all the familiar beats, like gorging on junk food, taking down Santa-clad invaders with impressive Nerf guns, setting elaborate house traps and doling out all the crotch hits one could ever expect to see.
