A Disney remake of “Home Alone” is on its way, according to Disney CEO Bob Iger. Iger said the company would be “reimagining” the 1990s Christmas classic film for its new streaming service, Disney+, along with “Night at the Museum,” “Cheaper by the Dozen” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.”
In March, Disney acquired most 21st Century Fox assets following a $71 billion deal — including several film franchises. “Home Alone,” which was released in 1990 and starred Macaulay Culkin. Disney has provided no details about how or when the film will be remade, or who will be cast.
In April, the company unveiled its Disney+ streaming service, which will launch in North America in November. The service will be the exclusive home of Marvel, “Star Wars,” Disney Animation and Pixar and will cost $6.99 a month.
