People were not happy when Disney announced it was rebooting the likes of Home Alone, Night at the Museum and Diary of a Wimpy Kid for its upcoming streaming service.
While the first Home Alone was outstanding and a Christmas classic, (and the second was also pretty good) the following movies were downright terrible.
That’s why people were a little confused why Disney would try to reboot a brilliant film for a new audience, when the original was so good.
Well, Macaulay Culkin, who obviously played the devilish Kevin McCallister, has revealed just how horrible the reboot would look if they wanted to use him at the lead actor.
“This is what an updated Home Alone would actually look like,” the actor wrote on Twitter.
He followed it up with a ‘Hey Disney, call me’, looking very eager to reprise his role as the boy who stands up against Marv and Harry.
Obviously, if Disney was going to reboot the franchise, they’d find another cherub child actor to play the role of Kevin; or maybe they might just throw everything out the door and bring in a new family and characters.
To be honest, an adult Culkin playing Kevin would be amazing.
The movie making giant has been very scant on the details about the reboot, when it’s coming, who will be in it and so forth but one thing is clear: the remake is happening.

It’ll be loaded onto the Disney+ streaming service, which will certainly rival Netflix when it debuts in America before it’s rolled out to places around the world.
There’s been a lot of speculation about the service, but it’s been confirmed to be released in America on 12 November and will only cost $6.99 (£5.34) per month.
That’s not too bad considering it’ll be full of your favourite movies and TV shows – 7,500 television episodes and 500 films from the Disney catalogue, to be exact, including all 30 seasons of The Simpsons.
And if you’re keen for some more nostalgia, Disney announced last night that customers will be able to watch every single Pixar short as part of the package – which is surely worth the subscription fee alone.

But as well as classics, the Micky Mouse brand also confirmed a Falcon Winter and Winter Soldier series will be produced, along with WandaVision, which will focus on Scarlet Witch and Vision’s story arc.
There’s a strange sounding What If? series being planned by the Marvel guys, which looks into alternate realities of the movies we all know and love. One of those is ‘what if Peggy Carter was turned into a superhero instead of Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers in Captain America…?’.
If that wasn’t enough, Disney also confirmed there will be two live-action projects about Loki and Hawkeye, as well as a whole series about a Star Wars bounty hunter called The Mandalorian.
According to the Metro, other works being planned include: a Monsters Inc. TV show called Monsters at Work, Diary of a Female President, High School Musical: The Musical, Ink & Paint, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and a prequel series based on the Rogue One movie.
