Disney+ Announces ’Home Alone’ Reboot For Upcoming Holiday Season
A new Home Alone movie is coming to Disney+ this holiday season. Home Sweet Home Alone will be available to stream exclusively on Disney+ beginning November 12, 2021.

The reboot follows a similar storyline to past movies in the franchise, but it doesn’t feature the same characters. Rather than following Kevin McCallister and his family, the spin-off tells the story of the Mercer family.
