There are more remakes to look forward to. Disney’s chief Bob Iger revealed that Disney and a few other franchises will get some “reimagination” done.

Iger also revealed that reboots would be released on the Disney’s streaming channel. This year, Disney plans to launch remakes of Night at the Museum, Home Alone and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

However, people weren’t happy with the news. Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin has also reacted to the remake.

Culkin weighs in

After the reboot was announced, Culkin posted a photo of himself to his social media. The actor had completely morphed into a couch potato, mocking the future of the adorable Kevin McCallister (Played by Culkin)

The 38-year-old actor wrote in the caption of the hilarious photo, writing, “this is what an updated Home Alone would actually look like.”

In the photo, Culkin sat lazily on the couch. He held a plate of food in one hand while the other resting on his stomach.

“I’d rather watch this…”

Fans were quick to comment and voice their opinion on the Richie Rich actor’s post. Many expressed that they’d rather watch Culkin’s version over the Disney reboot coming up.

Culkin revisits Home Alone

Culkin previously starred in a commercial for Google smart phone. The actor revisited the house from the original movie from 1990.

The ad showed Kevin McCallister all grown up and relived some of the iconic scenes from the movie.

What about the Disney reboot?

As the remake for the 1990 film was announced, fans were not on board. A fan of the original movie pointed out that the plot wouldn’t make sense in this age.

The Twitter user wrote, “Couldn’t the parents just text the neighbours or something?”

While other’s agreed that the classic movie shouldn’t be messed with. One fan demanded that Disney should “Leave Home Alone ALONE”.

Macaulay Culkin is married to Disney star Brenda Song.
