Disney's latest announcement of remaking some of their classics like Home Alone was met with great disappointment from netizens on Wednesday. After rebooting the beloved Aladdin and The Lion King this year, Disney chief Bob Iger confirmed that a handful of franchises will be getting a "reimagination" of sorts. Films like Home Alone, Night at the Museum, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid will be rebooted on Disney's own streaming channel, Disney+, which will launch later this year. The news sent many into a collective meltdown including actor Macaulay Culkin. 

For those living under a rock, Macaulay Culkin played the OG Kevin McCallister in 1990's Home Alone. Just like many other fans of the original adventure comedy film, Culkin also took to social media to join in and roast Disney's plan to reboot the classic 'Home Alone' franchise. 

Taking to Instagram, Culkin shared a photo of himself sitting like a couch potato in front of his laptop with a plate of food in his hand. In the background, there is also some Chinese takeout strewn about and the actor posing funnily for the camera. He wrote, "This is what an updated Home Alone would actually look like." The hilarious picture had many asking where was the cheese pizza. Check out Culkin's post:

Disney chief Bob Iger revealed that the remake of these classics is being done for 'for a new generation'. The “Home Alone” franchise is one of the most successful one. However, the original is considered to be the favourite one among the four films.
