Here's Home Sweet Home Alone's synopsis: "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."
Disney's then-CEO Bob Iger first announced a new Home Alone movie in 2019. Later that year, the creative team began to assemble around Mazer, Day, Sidell, Parker, and Wilson. The cast started to come together with Yates, Delaney, and Kemper singing on before year's end. The ensemble filled out in 2020 with the additions of Maki, Thompson, Parnell, Bea, Holmes, Simons, and Day.
Ratray reprises his role as Buzz McAllister from the original Home Alone. There are also reports that Macaulay Culkin will have a cameo appearance, reprising his role as Kevin McCallister.
Home Sweet Home Alone's debut is one part of the Disney+ Day celebration, commemorating the streaming service's second anniversary. It will also bring Shang-Cii and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Jungle Cruise to the platform. There's also the debut of Walt Disney Animation Studios' Olaf Presents series of shorts, a new Pixar short film titled "Ciao Alberto," and the second season of The World According to Jeff Goldblum.
