Finally, the sequel movie most people didn’t ask for will be coming to Disney+.  The new ‘Home Alone’ film, entitled “Home Sweet Home Alone” will be arriving on Disney+ on November 12, 2021.

20th Century Studios took to Twitter to make the announcement

Here’s the write up for the new film:

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.

It sounds like a cross between the 3rd and 4th films in the series.

We already knew about Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney but now we have a cast list:

The film stars Ellie Kemper (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Rob Delaney (“Deadpool 2”), Archie Yates (“Jojo Rabbit”), Aisling Bea (“Living with Yourself”), Kenan Thompson (“Saturday Night Live”), Tim Simons (“Veep”), Pete Holmes (“The Secret Life of Pets 2”), Devin Ratray (“Home Alone”), Ally Maki (“Toy Story 4”), Chris Parnell (“Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”) and is directed by Dan Mazer (“Dirty Grandpa”).

The screenplay is by Mikey Day & Streeter Seidell (“Saturday Night Live”), story by Mikey Day & Streeter Seidell and John Hughes (“Home Alone”) based on a screenplay by John Hughes. Hutch Parker (“X-Men: Dark Phoenix”) and Dan Wilson (“Patriots Day”) serve as producers, with Jeremiah Samuels (“Stuber”) serving as executive producer.

Personally I am waiting to see a trailer before I get too excited for this one. It feels like yet another franchise Hollywood is trying to drag back out for profit. But if it looks good I will say so.
