A currently untitled reboot of the Home Alone franchise was announced in August 2019, exclusively for the Disney+ streaming service.
This film will reportedly mark the first time Kevin McCallister appears in the franchise since Home Alone 4; unlike his previous appearances, he will be an adult and not the protagonist. Marv and Harry reunite for the first time since Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.

In October 2019, the film was reported to be written by Mikey Day and Streeter Seidel. Hutch Parker and Dan Wilson will be producing the film, with Dan Mazer in talks to direct. According to reports, the protagonist will be a nine-year-old boy named Max.
Some reports suggest that the project is labeled as a Home Alone project due to similarities in concept, but it will not bear the franchise name in its title.
It was reported by some sources that Kevin McCallister, Buzz McCallister, Marv Murchins, and Harry Lyme, would appear. Macaulay Culkin was later reported to have a cameo in the film, for which he was paid $2.5 million. It is unknown if Buzz, Marv, or Harry will be reprised by Devin Ratray, Daniel Stern, or Joe Pesci, respectively.
