Classic Christmas comedy “Home Alone”, originally released in 1990 starring Macaulay Culkin, is to be remade by Disney for its new streaming service.

Disney+ launches in the USA in November and should arrive in the UK next year. The studio’s Chief Executive Bob Iger announced there will also be “reimaginations” of “Night At the Museum”, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” and “Cheaper By the Dozen”.¬†Disney now owns the franchises after it bought the 20th Century Fox film studio.
