Reboots Of ‘Home Alone,’ ‘Night At The Museum,’ More Coming To Disney+

During a call to talk about third quarter earnings for The Walt Disney Company, chairman and CEO Bob Iger revealed some projects that were being planned for their upcoming streaming service Disney+ which come from the company’s acquisition of Fox’s entertainment assets.

We already knew that we’d be seeing things like Avatar and X-Men, but Disney has confirmed that some reboots for popular franchises including Home Alone, Night at the Museum, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid are on the way to the streaming service.

According to Iger, Home Alone and the other titles will eventually be “re-imagined for a new generation.” He said that in addition to the aforementioned Avatar sequels, the X-Men franchise including Deadpool, and continuing the Planet of the Apes franchise:

“We’re also focused on leveraging Fox’s vast library of great titles to further enrich the content mix on our DTC platforms [Disney+ and Hulu].”

Iger added:

“We see great long-term value in the broad collection of theatrical IP we acquired from Fox.”

We probably won’t see most of these projects for a little while, however, as Iger said:

“[The goal is] to cut back on the number of releases, and then to focus on the kind of release we would hope would come out of this studio.

[It will take a] year or two years before we can have an impact. But we’re all confident that we’re going to be able to turn around the fortunes of Fox live action.”

Because these projects are still at least a couple of years down the road, details on who might be involved in making and starring in the Home Alone, Night at the Museum, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid reboots are not yet known.

Disney+ is set to launch this November.
