The official title of the Home Alone reboot has been revealed, as has the release date on Disney+.

The upcoming Home Alone reboot now has an official title and a release date on Disney+.

The revised version of the Macaulay Culkin Christmas classic, first revealed in 2019, will star Saturday Night Live’s Kenan Thompson and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Ellie Kemper.

It has now been revealed that the film will be named Home Sweet Home Alone and will be released on Netflix on November 12 — just in time for the holidays.

The film will also feature Rob Delaney from Deadpool 2, Archie Yates from Jojo Rabbit, Aisling Bea from This Way Up, Ally Maki from Cloak & Dagger, Chris Parnell from Archer, Tim Simons from Veep, Pete Holmes from Crashing, and Devin Ratray from the original Home Alone.

Dan Mazer will direct, with SNL writers Mikey Day and Streeter Seidell writing the script.

Thompson provided an update on the status of Home Sweet Home Alone earlier this year, conceding that the epidemic had impacted production.

Release Date

“It had been a lengthy shoot. It began in Canada, was shut down, and then restarted due to the pandemic and other factors, so everything’s been a bit splotchy in terms of getting it done “In April, he made a remark. “However, I believe they’re on the verge of completing it.”

Meanwhile, original Home Alone director Chris Columbus also expressed dissatisfaction with the reboot, calling it a “waste of time.”

“I’m a firm believer that you don’t reproduce films with the longevity of Home Alone,” he said last year. “You’ll never manufacture lightning in a bottle again. It is simply not going to happen. So, what’s the point?”

On November 12, Home Sweet Home Alone will be available on Disney+.


Disney+ has discovered methods to bring back original cast members for many of their new series. So it’s plausible that they may entice Macaulay back in some manner to play Kevin McCallister in a minor role. Maybe just as a cameo as the new kid’s science teacher?

 We wouldn’t mind if that happened. Maybe we’ll learn at the end that Home Alone 3.0 learnt how to make all those booby traps from his smart geek teacher? It appears to be cheesy, but what is Home Alone if not cheesy fun? Culkin appears to have a genuine sense of humour about his time as a child movie icon, so one never knows. Let’s hope that old-school Kevin shows up!
