Is Macaulay Culkin In Home Sweet Home Alone?

Home Sweet Home Alone, the Disney reboot of the 1990s classic Christmas film, has been released on Disney Plus today (12th November). It's one of a number of new movies to be premiered on the platform as part of Disney Plus Day.

Naturally, fans want to know if Macaulay Culkin, the star of the original 1990s franchise, will be in the revival.

Culkin was just 10-years-old when he starred in the first Home Alone movie and in August this year, fans were flabbergasted to hear he'd celebrated his 41st birthday.


Home Sweet Home Alone plot

The Disney revival follows the same storyline as the classic Home Alone movies, with Max Mercer, a mischievous and resourceful young boy, being left behind while his family is in Japan for the holidays.

Max runs into trouble when a married couple attempts to retrieve a priceless heirloom from the Mercer family's home, and it is up to him 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 realise that there really is no place like home sweet home," said Disney Plus.

Home Sweet Home Alone does have an original Home Alone cast member, but unfortunately, it's not Culkin.

Devin Ratray, who played Kevin's older brother Buzz McCallister in the original movies, will reprise his role in the reboot. In 2017, he spoke about his life since the Home Alone movies.


The film, which is directed by Dan Mazer (Dirty Grandpa) stars:

  • Archie Yates (Jojo Rabbit) as Max Mercer
  • Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) as Pam
  • Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2) as Jeff
  • Aisling Bea (Living with Yourself) as Carol
  • Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live) as Gavin
  • Tim Simons (Veep) as Hunter
  • Pete Holmes (The Secret Life of Pets 2) as Blake
  • Ally Maki (Toy Story 4) as Mei
  • Chris Parnell (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) as Uncle Stu.

Home Sweet Home Alone premieres on Disney Plus on 12th November 2021.
