Home Sweet Home Alone Synopsis
"Max Mercer is a mischievous and resourceful young boy who has been left behind and home alone while his family is in Japan for the holidays. So when a married couple attempting to retrieve a priceless heirloom set their sights on the Mercer family's home, it is up to Max to protect it from the trespassers…and he will do whatever it takes to keep them out. Hilarious hijinks of epic proportions ensue, but despite the absolute chaos, Max comes to realize that there really is no place like home sweet home."
So…is this a sequel? I mean, there are so many nods to the original it will make your head spin. Are the cameos more like a wink and nod to us, the audience, because we know who they are? Am I overthinking this? Yes, yes, I am. However, you shake it though, this looks like fun, and more importantly, my nine-year-old daughter is going to love it. Home Sweet Home Alone is out on Disney+ on Disney+ Day, November 12th.
