“Home Sweet Home Alone”, which was first announced in 2019, follows 10-year-old Max Mercer (“Jojo Rabbit”‘s Archie Yates) as he’s accidentally left behind when his family travels to Tokyo for the holidays.
Just like the original, Max finds himself having to think creatively when two married robbers (Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney) try to break into his home.
“Saturday Night Live” icon Kenan Thompson also stars in the film, which was written by “SNL” writers Mikey Day and Streeter Seidell.
“Home Sweet Home Alone” hits Disney+ on Nov. 12.
