After enjoying the reboot of old classics like Aladdin and The Lion King, Disney is all set to bring back a few other much-loved originals. You heard it right! Disney is planning to re-tell some of its classics from 1990s. In a conference call with a few investors, Disney's chief, Bob Iger confirmed that the channel will be re-telling a few hits from the past which includes the Christmas classic Home Alone, Night At The Museum, Cheaper By The Dosen and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. These reboots will be aired on Disney's own streaming channel Disney+.
"We are also focused on leveraging Fox's vast library of great titles to further enrich the content mix on our... platforms -- for example, reimagining 'Home Alone,' 'Night at the Museum,' 'Cheaper by the Dozen' and 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' for a new generation on Disney+," Iger told investors, a report in CNN stated.
The details about these films like the cast, locations or release date are still under wraps. Each movie listed above has a huge fan base but Home Alone forms for a special Christmas memory. Macaulay Culkin, who played Kevin McCallister, became an overnight sensation after the movie. Macaulay shared his reaction on Twitter and we gotta say, it's hilarious to another level and resonates with each and every fan in the world. A sulking Culkin is slumped on a couch, with his laptop recklessly balanced on his knees and holding a bowl of pasta on his exposed stomach. He later tweeted Disney to call him.
