Home Alone fans have Macaulay Culkin trending after the trailer for Home Sweet Home Alone dropped today. Disney and 20th Century Studios are basically rebooting the family film. Disney+ bills the new movie as a reimagining, but a lot of the millennial fans of the originals just want the old actor back. Culkin has played along with a lot of the fan fervor since this movie was announced. He urged the people out there to give the new one a chance. November 12 will see Home Sweet Home Alone release on Disney+. Ellie Kemper, Rob Delaney, Archie Yates, Aisling Bea, Kenan Thompson, Tim Simons, Pete Holmes, Devin Ratray, Ally Maki, and Chris Parnell are all on board for this new installment of the franchise. Check out what the fans are saying down below:
What made the original Home Alone so great:— Shooter McGavin (@ShooterMcGavin_) October 12, 2021
- Plot was so outrageous that it worked
- Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern’s chemistry was perfect
- Macaulay Culkin
- John Williams soundtrack
- The final 30 minutes are legendary and really made it the classic it is today
Check out the synopsis for Home Sweet Home Alone: "Max Mercer is a mischievous and resourceful young boy who has been left behind while his family is in Japan for the holidays. So when a married couple attempting to retrieve a priceless heirloom 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. Hilarious hijinks of epic proportions ensue, but despite the absolute chaos, Max comes to realize that there really is no place like home sweet home."

I'm not mad at this
But what I don't understand is if you're going to go to the effort of making a new Home Alone, why not go all in and tie it to Macaulay Culkin and have him leave his kid at home?
Why not try and come up with a new angle? https://t.co/s3857DdexI— Screamhín 🎃👻 (@yascaoimhin) October 12, 2021
Line in the sand
I refuse to acknowledge this movie's existence. Home Alone will always be with Macaulay Culkin and Joe Pesci. https://t.co/jU2JCbnhE9— Matt Michaels (@MattyMike0718) October 12, 2021
People are saying Macaulay Culkin should play the dad in this or at least have a role.
I disagree. he should just play as the kid left home alone again. Just like a 40-year-old man, with no explanation. https://t.co/P4hFVpbtgr— Lord Victor (@lordvictor) October 12, 2021
Would be awesome
If you reboot Home Alone and don't cast Macaulay Culkin as the scary adult who saves the day in the end then what's the point— Deimosion (@Deimosion) October 12, 2021
How dare they insult Macaulay Culkin like this with this home sweet home alone nonsense pic.twitter.com/nWUxLurBGH— christena (@christena4595) October 12, 2021
The only sequel of Home Alone 1&2 I'd expect is an R-rated gritty home invasion horror with a grown-up Kevin played still by Macaulay Culkin— George Sheard (@gbsheard) October 12, 2021
