Disney CEO Bob Iger said during a conference call to investors that the ‘90s Christmas movie would be getting a reboot.
“We are also focused on leveraging Fox’s vast library of great titles to further enrich the content mix on our… platforms,” Iger said. “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+”.
Home Alone was released in 1990 and starred Macaulay Culkin. There were no other details about when the remake would be happening or who the cast would be.

Speaking of Disney’s streaming service, Disney revealed they will be offering an incredible discount price for those bundling its three premium services: Disney+, Hulu and ESPN.
A couple of months ago, Disney announced the release date, price and content of its forthcoming streaming service.
Disney+ is slated to go live this November for a mere $6.99 per month. Now, it appears a bundle deal including Disney+, Hulu and ESPN will launch Nov. 12 for an astounding $12.99 per month.
The deal will definitely serve as some major competition to Netflix and Amazon, both of which offer basic HD plans on their services for $12.99 per month.
Included in the Disney+ library will be 400 movies and 7,500 TV shows. This includes Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm content on top of what they’ve acquired from 21st Century Fox.
ESPN will include hundreds of games from MLB, NHL and MLS. Tennis, boxing, college sports, PGA Tour, rugby, cricket and a full library of ESPN films will also be included.

According to the website, the streaming service “will offer fans of all ages a new way to experience the unparalleled content from the company’s iconic entertainment brands, including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic, and will be available on connected TV and mobile devices.”
November 12 cannot get here soon enough.
