A new remake of the Christmas classic Home Alone is coming to Disney+.

Home Sweet Home Alone is a modern take on the 1990 film and stars comedian Aisling Bea, Archie Yates, Ellie Lemper and Rob Delaney.

The new adaptation directed by Dan Mazer is based on the same story of Home Alone which starred a young Macaulay Culkin.

It is the sixth instalment in the Home Alone franchise, and serves as a reboot - of course there are some modern twists though.

The trailer showcases a large and chaotic family who get themselves into some sticky situations ahead of a holiday to Tokyo only to discover that, in their haste, they have accidently left one of their children behind.

Ten-year-old Max Mercer, played by Archie Yates, must work to defend his home from a married couple who arrive there to steal a priceless heirloom.

The original wet bandits Harry and Marv, played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern, have been replaced by married couple Pam and Jeff Fritzovski, played by Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney.

One original character who does make an appearance though is Buzz, played by Devin D Ratray.

The Home Alone reboot’s trailer quickly shows a 30-years-older Buzz McCallister as a police officer who gets called in to check out suspicious individuals in a wealthy neighbourhood.

The new film will be exclusively available to watch on Disney+ on Disney+ Day, on Friday, November 12 - sign up to Disney+ here.

The trailer for Home Sweet Home Alone has prompted mixed reaction, with many scratching their heads as to why there's a Home Alone reboot.

Sarah Jane said on Twitter: "So you had to remake a classis, one that could NEVER be bettered, and you thought that was a good idea?"

Another said: "About the trailer, it's not bad in my opinion, but I'll stick with the original Home Alone, thank you very much."

One Twitter user believes he has come up with a better remake.

He said: "Remakes are fine. But no one likes poorly thought out remakes.

"Why not have Macaulay Culkin and have him leave his kid at home? The knowledge he has of his past would have created a cool story where he actually taught his kids how to defend their home..."

Whatever your thoughts, Home Sweet Home Alone will be available to watch on Disney+ on November 12.
