Ellie Kemper, Rob Delaney and Archie Yates star, along with Aisling Bea, Kenan Thompson, Tim Simons, Pete Holmes, Devin Ratray, Ally Maki, and Chris Parnell.


Yates plays Max Mercer, 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 family’s home, it is up to Max to protect it from the trespassers.


There have been five previous Fox installments of the Home Alone franchise, beginning in 1990 with the Chris Columbus-directed comedy penned by Hugues and starring Macaulay Culkin. It earned two Oscar noms for John Williams’ score and original song.


The film will be one of several Disney+ Day releases on November 12th, where it will stream exclusively.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
