Disney+ Home Alone Reboot Sets Many Cast Members

The new movie will have a lot of crossover of Saturday Night Live talent.


Although no release date has yet been given for the upcoming Disney+ Home Alone reboot, information is starting to come out about its cast. The reboot has added Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live), Ally Maki (Toy Story 4), and Chris Parnell (Archer). The news comes from Deadline, who also is reporting that Archie Yates (Jojo Rabbit), Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2), and Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) will star in the film.

The film's official synopsis is as follows: "The new Home Alone film will follow a husband and wife who go to war with a young boy, Max, who has stolen from them. Max is an energetic, witty nine-year-old boy with a mischievous side. He feels wise beyond his years and has the personality to easily converse with adults--plus the uncanny ability to relentlessly push their buttons. But, he also displays a sense of innocence and a kind heart, much like the original protagonist."

Rumors have persisted but remain unconfirmed that actor Macaulay Culkin, who starred in the original '90s film and its sequel, could make a cameo in this new version of Home Alone.

Dan Mazer (Dirty Grandpa) is set to direct the upcoming movie, working from a script from Saturday Night Live veterans Streeter Seidel and Mikey Day. Day will also act in the film. Hutch Parker (Logan) and Dan Wilson (Patriots Day) will produce.
