Home Alone, Macaulay Culkin

Keep the change, ya filthy animals!

Disney recently announced a Home Alone reboot and Macaulay Culkin had some thoughts.

On Tuesday, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed the studio was "re-imagining" the 1990s classic Christmas movie, which starred a young Culkin as Kevin McCallister. What's more? The updated film will be available on its new streaming service, Disney+. In fact, the company plans to also re-imagine Night at the Museum, Cheaper by the Dozen and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Although, it's unclear in what capacity.

However, fans of the beloved Home Alone film weren't exactly thrilled about the reboot. Similar to the famous "Leave Britney alone" phrase, many online begged Disney to leave Home Alone...well, alone.

Of course, Macaulay couldn't help but chime in. After all, he was the star of the original films.

"This is what an updated Home Alone would actually look like," the 38-year-old quipped on social media, alongside a photo with his belly sticking out, leftovers in his hand and a laptop place in front of him.

Naturally, Culkin's fellow Hollywood colleagues commented on his facetious post, including Sarah Michelle Gellar. She wrote, "I would still watch it though." Same!

Dillon Casey added, "When I post pics like this everyone asks me if I'm "okay"."

However, Culkin followed up with a second tweet, "Hey @Disney, call me!" 

While it's unclear if the 38-year-old star will be part of the mega studio's reboot, fans of Macaulay saw him parody the 1990 classic film last December.

Getting into the holiday spirit, he partnered with Google to poke fun at the movie that turned him into a household name. If anything, the 1-minute clip showed an "updated" version of Home Alone.
