Disney has a "Home Alone" reboot in the works, and the news left many fans upset and confused by the decision.
During the Walt Disney Company’s August 6th conference call, Disney head Bob Iger made the official announcement that "Home Alone" would be getting a fresh update for the company’s streaming service, Disney+.
However, moments after the announcement, fans of the franchise began theorizing that an updated "Home Alone" wouldn't work in today's technologically advanced society.
"With GPS tracking, smartphones, texting, FaceTime, Google and Alexa services and advance housing security systems, the odds of Kevin being left behind for as long as Macaulay Culkin's character in the 90's classic seems far fetched," one critic noted.

"Home Alone" was the highest-grossing live-action comedy in the U.S. until it was displaced by "The Hangover Part II" in 2011.
The classic Christmas movie did get a sequel in 1992 (Home Alone 2: Lost in New York), and two other sequels, that did not include Culkin, in 1997 and 2004.
The original remains the best, and is heavily featured in rotation during the holidays.
