Macaulay Culkin Wants Disney to Call About 'Home Alone' Reboot

By Ryan Naumann

Macaulay Culkin has a much different opinion of his iconic character, Kevin McCallister, returning for Disney’s reboot of “Home Alone” than the critics.

The actor clearly heard the announcement that Disney will be remaking his classic 1990 film, along with several other family hits, for their new streaming service, Disney+.

He tweeted out after the news broke; “Hey @Disney, call me!”

Culkin also tweeted out a photo with the caption, “This is what an updated Home Alone would actually look like.”

He did recently reprise his role as the smart-mouthed star in a Google commercial.

The announcement came from Disney head, Bob Iger, who told investors during a conference call. He announced “Cheaper By The Dozen” along with “Night at The Museum” would also be remade for the new service.

Fans of the classic reacted quickly to the news with many theorizing that an updated "Home Alone" wouldn't work in today's technologically advanced society.

One wrote, "With GPS tracking, smartphones, texting, FaceTime, Google and Alexa services and advance housing security systems, the odds of Kevin being left behind for as long as Macaulay Culkin's character in the 90's classic seems far fetched."

"Home Alone" was the highest-grossing live-action comedy in the U.S. until it was displaced by "The Hangover Part II" in 2011.

The classic Christmas movie did get a sequel in 1992 (Home Alone 2: Lost in New York), and two other sequels, that did not include Culkin, in 1997 and 2004.

The original remains the best, and is heavily featured in rotation during the holidays.
