Disney has released the first trailer for the new Home Alone reboot, titled Home Sweet Home Alone, which will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on November 12th.

The original Home Alone starred Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, and Daniel Stern and became a major hit and Christmas classic. Home Alone 2 brought back Culkin and much of the original cast and was also a big hit, however the franchise fell off after that as the next three films didn’t feature Culkin. This will be the sixth Home Alone movie.

The new film stars Archie Yates (Jojo Rabbit) as Max Mercer, who essentially is replacing Culkin’s Kevin McCallister character. The plot is the same as the original — Mercer’s family leaves for Christmas vacation (to Japan instead of France this time around) and leaves him behind. A married couple (Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney) decide to rob Mercer’s home, and it’s up to the young boy to defend the house.

The cast also includes Aisling Bea, Kenan Thompson, Timothy Simons, Pete Holmes, Ally Maki, Chris Parnell, and Devin Ratray as Buzz.

Borat co-writer Dan Mazer is directing.
