Disney intends to remake the classic ’90s Christmas movie Home Alone for its upcoming Disney+ streaming service, company head Bob Iger told investors Tuesday. According to Entertainment Tonight, Iger described the reboot as a reimagining “for a new generation.” The original Home Alone was released in 1990 and was one of the highest-grossing live action comedy films of all times, spawning multiple sequels. There’s still no word on whether Macauley Culkin will be involved in the remake.

would actually look like,” he captioned the shot. Culkin starred as Kevin McCallister in the original Home Alone
and its sequel. On Tuesday, Disney head Bob Iger confirmed that the reboot of the classic film will be a reimagined version for “a new generation.”
