After the deal between Fox and Disney, Disney President Bob Iger promised the studio would develop Fox franchises aimed at family viewing. Such as “Night at the Museum” and first of all, “Home Alone.” Work on the new film began last year, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the shooting had to be stopped.

Now it became known that new actors joined the cast of the film. These are Ellie Mackie (Toy Story 4), Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live), and Chris Panell (Archer). The trio joins previously announced actors Archie Yates, Rob Delaney, and Ellie Kemper.
