Macaulay Culkin Posts Hilarious Pic After Disney Announces They’re Rebooting Home Alone (23 Reactions)

Following the purchase of 20th Century Fox, Disney now owns the rights to many of its franchises, including Home Alone. Recently, the studio decided it would give the ’90s classic a reboot on its forthcoming streaming service.

After he found out about it, Macaulay Culkin, the actor who portrayed the beloved Kevin McAllister, shared his take on what the “updated” version should look like.

Culkin, now 38, posted a hilarious photo of himself sitting on the couch with a laptop. In the pic, he can be seen rocking a headband and short white tank top, surrounded by video game controllers, take out meals and other stuff one could need on a lonely Friday evening.

Interestingly, the actor’s younger brother, Kieran, said their family continue rewatching the film. “It was a movie for us too growing up, which is funny,” he told ET. “You would think that because he was in it and it was such a big thing [for him] that we wouldn’t be able to enjoy it like a Christmas movie. But over the years we have been able to. Yeah, we watch it!”

People loved Macaulay’s picture and immediately started reacting to it

It's kind of lame that Disney is just remaking a bunch of movies. I guess they are just out of ideas :(

Those movies are cash cows. How do you get parents into cinema with their kids? Show them what they loved when they were kids. I think it's really sad of Disney to destroy those classics. None of the new movies was nearly as good as the original ones.

I believe it was Gene Siskel who once said, "Remake Bad Movies, not good ones." Nothing wrong with taking a mediocre movie i.e. The original (1951) Thing from another world and making it a great movie (1982) John Carpenter's The Thing. But why take a wonderful movie and remake it. In all likelihood it's all down hill from here.

it is simple marketing really... why to bother with an original story when you can remake a well know movie that dumb people will pay to see cause of nostalgia and such! since it is well know, you dont need to convince anyone! it is a recurring thing at disney... nothing new comes out of them anymore

Disney is doing nothing but remakes and sequels these days. If your people can't come up with an original idea, hire new people Disney.
