Disney Rebooting 'Home Alone' and Other Fox Films — and Twitter Has Thoughts

By

Proving there are no new ideas and that nothing is sacred, Disney announced on Aug. 6 that they would be rebooting several recently acquired Fox properties for eventual distribution on their upcoming streaming platform, Disney+. Among the titles up for a little re-imagineering are Home Alone, Night at the Museum, Cheaper By the Dozen, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

The internet is overflowing with examples of why Home Alone as a concept is flat-out impossible in a modern setting. Like this evergreen cartoon by Jen Lewis. The list of modern technological advancements that would make the concept ludicrous is longer than my arm.
