Disney rebooting Home Alone, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Night At The Museum for streaming service

August 8th, 2019 by Marc Comments

So, it’s official, nothing is sacred.

So, remember when we were all delighted when Disney bought Fox because X-Men?

Well, not they’re rebooting Home Alone.


Yeas, at Disney’s Q3 Earnings Call last night Disney chief Bob Iger mentioned a batch of properties that are getting rebooted for the Disney+ streaming service…

Home Alone, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Night At The Museum are all going to be ‘reimagined’ for the service.

And that’s all I know for now.

Look, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a hot mess and Night At the Museaum has Rebel Wilson, so no-one really cares about those too much but Home Alone is a Christmas classic and a movie that a lot of people hold dear and Macauley Culkin was perfect in the roll… remember the sequels after the second movie?

Honestyly, I can already see this being Kevin beating the criminals using an iPad and Alexis…

Leave it Disney, no-one wants this.

Or do they? Let me know in the usual ways.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
