Kenan Thompson On The ‘Home Alone’ Reboot: “I Think They’re Getting Very Close To Finishing It”

The ‘Home Alone’ reboot is reportedly “very close” to being completed

Disney+ is making a reboot of the Home Alone franchise. The project has been in development for some time. Saturday Night Live‘s Kenan Thompson, who will make an appearance in the reboot, recently confirmed that the film is actually close to finishing during his interview on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

“It was a long shoot. It started in Canada and got shut down and then came back around because of the pandemic. It’s been very splotchy as far as trying to get it done is concerned. I think they’re getting very close to finishing it. I did ADR for it recently, so that’s usually one of the last steps. So, it’s coming out.”

The original Home Alone movie premiered in 1990, followed by four more installments – Home Alone 2, Home Alone 3, Home Alone 4, and Home Alone: The Holiday Heist. The first two are still beloved holiday classics. Starring child star Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, and Daniel Stern, and directed by Chris Columbus, the movie followed the story of eight-year-old Kevin, who is left alone at home on Christmas.

The Disney+ reboot will star Rob Delaney, Ellie Kemper,  Ally Maki, Pete Holmes, Kenan Thompson, Chris Parnell, Timothy Simons, Andy Daly, and Mikey Day. Jojo Rabbit star Archie Yates will take over the role originally played by Culkin. Dan Mazer is set to direct.

No release date has been announced yet.
