Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed on August 6, 2019, that a new Home Alone movie, titled Home Alone, was in the works. The project is being created as a Disney+ original movie by 20th Century Studios, making it the first 20th Century Studios movie to be made for the streaming service.
It was announced following The Walt Disney Company’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox, which included the Home Alone movie rights. Later, the movie was postponed due to the pandemic.
