“Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal.”

A reboot of 1990’s wildly successful film¬†Home Alone¬†is¬†slated to be shot in our backyard next year, according to¬†reports.


Though no casting has been announced, filming is expected to get underway from February to April before the reboot is launched on Disney+.

Disney announced in August that¬†Home Alone, Cheaper by the Dozen,¬†Night at the Museum,¬†and Diary of a Wimpy Kid¬†would be¬†‚Äúreimagined‚ÄĚ for its new streaming service.

The original Home Alone¬†(does that make you feel old?) starred Macaulay Culkin as eight-year-old Kevin McCallister along with Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern as burglars, and Toronto’s Catherine O‚ÄôHara as Kevin‚Äôs mother.

The movie, directed by Chris Columbus, proved to be a massive hit, grossing $476 million US, while spawning a profitable sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, and two less-popular films, Home Alone 3 (1997) and Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House with different casts.

Culkin, 39, reprised his role as¬†McCallister last year in a Google Assistant commercial. After hearing about plans of a reboot, he jokingly tweeted a picture of himself asking Disney to “call me!”
