Did Christmas come early?! Earlier this morning, Disney+ announced that 20th Century Studios’ Home Sweet Home Alone, an all-new adventure comedy from the beloved holiday film franchise, will debut November 12, 2021, exclusively on the streaming service.
Max Mercer is a mischievous and resourceful young boy who has been left behind while his family is in Japan for the holidays. So, when a married couple attempting to retrieve a priceless heirloom sets their sights on the Mercer family’s home, it is up to Max to protect it from the trespassers… and he will do whatever it takes to keep them out. Hilarious hijinks of epic proportions ensue, but despite the absolute chaos, Max comes to realize that there really is no place like home sweet home.
