1990’s “Home Alone” was created by famous ’80s filmmaker John Hughes and directed by Chris Columbus. It highlighted the skills of Joe Pesci, John Listened to and Catherine O’Hara. A sequel, entitled “Home By itself 2: Lost in New York,” was introduced in 1992.

This remake was initial introduced in 2019 and will be introduced on the streaming services on Nov. 12.
