Disney is gearing up to relaunch several family comedies. This was announced by the CEO of the company Bob Iger. Among them - "Home Alone", "Night at the Museum", "Diary of a Wimp" and "Cheaper by the Dozen". They will be streaming on the new Disney + streaming service due this November.
The film "Home Alone" was released in 1990, starring Macaulay Culkin. In the story, the McAlister family goes on vacation to Paris and in the morning bustle forgets their youngest son Kevin at home. The boy will not only have to take care of himself, but also protect himself from the robbers. In the nearly thirty years since its release, the comedy has become a Christmas classic.
Iger explained that the films will be "rethought" for a new generation, but did not specify when work on them will begin. Previously, the rights to these comedies were owned by Fox, which became part of Disney. According to The Independent, 7,500 episodes of TV series and 400 films are planned to be uploaded to it within a year after the launch of the streaming service.
These are not the first films that the company has relaunched. In 2019, a new cartoon "The Lion King" and the film "Aladdin" were released.
