The classic holiday film, Home Alone entered theaters in 1990 and has been a holiday staple ever since. As the holidays have rounded the corner year after year, the Home Alone franchise has continued to grow. Home Alone (1990) was quickly followed by Home Alone 2: Lost in New York in 1992. In 1997, Home Alone 3 made its debut, with Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House arriving in 2002. Ten years went by before the fifth installment of the Home Alone franchise arrived, called Home Alone: The Holiday Heist in 2012. And now, a total of 31 years since the very first Home Alone, a Disney+ original film has landed. Home Sweet Home Alone carries on the Home Alone franchise in 2021 for all of us Home Alone fans to enjoy for the holidays.
Instead of the child Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) taking center stage, a new face shows on the screen. But don’t worry, Max (Archie Yates) is just as mischievous and daring as one would expect!
The 20th Century Studios’ Home Sweet Home Alone is an all-new adventure comedy that follows along with the story of Max Mercer, a mischievous and resourceful young boy who has been left behind while his family is in Japan for the holidays. When a married couple attempts to retrieve a priceless heirloom (a very creepy-looking, but valuable doll!) set their sights on the Mercer family’s home, it is up to Max to protect it from the trespassers…and he will do whatever it takes to keep them out. The hilarious hijinks of epic proportions ensue and are right on par with the Home Alone franchise. Despite the absolute chaos, however, Max comes to realize that there really is no place like home sweet home.
Home Sweet Home Alone hosts a fun Cast including Ellie Kemper (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Rob Delaney (“Deadpool 2”), Archie Yates (“Jojo Rabbit”), Aisling Bea (“Living with Yourself”), Kenan Thompson (“Saturday Night Live”), Tim Simons (“Veep”), Pete Holmes (“The Secret Life of Pets 2”), Devin Ratray (“Home Alone”), Ally Maki (“Toy Story 4”), Chris Parnell (“Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”) and is directed by Dan Mazer (“Dirty Grandpa”).
