When Disney purchased 20th Century Fox, one of the major benefits was the vast amount of franchises available, many of which Disney has already utilised to start making new series and films for Disney+.
One of those projects will be a new “Home Alone” film for Disney+ and during a recent appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live”, one of the film’s stars Keenan Thompson, spoke about the process of getting the film made during the pandemic and said that it was “very close” to being finished.
“It was a long shoot. It started in Canada and got shut down and then came back around because of the pandemic. It’s been very splotchy as far as trying to get it done is concerned. I think they’re getting very close to finishing it. I did ADR for it recently, so that’s usually one of the last steps. So, it’s coming out.”
The upcoming Disney+ movie also stars Archie Yates (JoJo Rabbit) as the main character Max, who has stolen a porcelain doll from Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2) and Ellie Kemper (The Office). Also set to appear in the new Home Alone film are Aisling Bea (This Way Up), Pete Holmes (Don’t Think Twice), Timothy Simons (Veep), Mikey Day (Saturday Night Live), Ally Maki (Toy Story 4) and Chris Parnell (Hot Rod)
