Home Alone Sequel Starring Macaulay Culkin Is In The Works
Looks like Macaulay Culkin could be back as Kevin!
Home Alone and Home Alone 2 are two of the most legendary Christmas films, which resulted in several lacklustre sequels, primarily due to the absence of Macaulay Culkin who gave his all in the role of Kevin.
However, according to the movie website GiantFreakingRobotThe most recent Home Alone installment was Home Sweet Home Alone, the sixth film in the franchise and starring Archie Yates as Max Mercer. Max protects his home in the same booby-trapped fashion, but the whole thing is a mistake. and their reliable sources, Macaulay Culkin is slated to return for a new Home Alone film for Disney+.
Now as a fully grown adult we assume that that Culkin’s character will not be the one laying traps this time, but he is returning to his finest franchise.

The world does introduce some older characters, such as Devin Raytray as Officer Buzz McCallister, and even reveals that Macaulay Culkin’s Kevin operates a security firm which makes sense after battling against two burglars in both movies!

Joe Pesci, who portrayed one of the original films’ wet bandits, stated a few months ago that he would be prepared to return to the Home Alone world, and he has also been increasing his acting roles recently.
You Can Now Stay In The Grinch’s Cave And Be Transported To Whoville
A cave in Utah, has been transformed to look exactly like the world-famous Crumpit Dr. hideaway.
The space comes with two bedrooms and two bathrooms and features the Grinch’s organ, Max’s drum, a library, and a kitchen, to name a few of the features from the film.
The Grinch’s pad is available to rent for a limited time only, between 13th-31st December 2021.
And the fun is not only in the features, the Grinch’s cave is available to rent for only $20 (£15) per night – cheaper than most of my camping trips.
Adding up to the camping vibe, the listing warns that the cave is in a remote location, so guests will need to take their own food, drink and other supplies.
In addition, Grinch warned, “I like to be alone. Very, very alone. So I chose a cave that’s intentionally a little hard for visitors to get to. Make sure you have a car that’s at least a crossover or larger for the trail leading up Mount Crumpit. A Mini Cooper will NOT work.”

Elf 2 – Everything We Know So Far
Can you believe the film is 20 years old?
Get ready to dive into the curious case of “Elf 2” and what we found out about the sequel to the favourite and quintessentially Christmas movie!
It’s been almost 20 years since the jolly movie “Elf” starring Will Ferrell first graced our screens during the holidays. But hold on to your candy canes because as we unwrap the story behind this festive mystery of Elf 2.
Back in 2003, when “Elf” was being made, no one was quite sure if it would become the Christmas classic we know today. In fact, Will Ferrell, the guy who played Buddy the Elf, was worried that this elfin adventure might ruin his film career before it even started.
But guess what? “Elf” sleighed it at the box office, bringing in over $220 million, which shocked a lot of movie reviewers and since then it has gone on to become a favourite Christmas film for many who watch it every single year.
With “Elf” becoming an instant holiday hit, you’d think a sequel would be as inevitable as Santa delivering presents. But here’s the twist: “Elf 2” was actually in the works shortly after the first film’s release. However, this snowball soon melted away, and the blame was placed on Will Ferrell’s reluctance to don his elfin attire once more.
James Caan, who played Walter Hobbs in the movie, spilled the hot cocoa on this drama. He revealed that Ferrell was up for a sequel but only if Jon Favreau, the director of the original film, wasn’t at the helm. Apparently, Favreau and Ferrell didn’t have the coziest of relationships while making the first movie.
Caan even suggested that Ferrell had it written into his contract that Favreau couldn’t be the director for the sequel. Talk about North Pole-sized drama!
Now, Will Ferrell isn’t a stranger to comedy sequels. He’s given us gems like “Anchorman 2,” “Daddy’s Home 2,” and “Zoolander 2.” So, why was he so quick to pull the plug on a second Elf adventure? Well, Ferrell thought it would be “pathetic” to revisit Buddy the Elf all these years later.
In his words, trying to squeeze back into those elf tights would just look odd. Imagine a middle-aged elf spreading holiday cheer – it might be more awkward than funny.
But the real deal-breaker seems to be the script. Ferrell turned down the sequel because he believed it was a terrible rewrite of the original story. He didn’t want to make a movie that added nothing new to the tale. Instead of cashing in on a lackluster sequel and misleading fans, Ferrell decided to be honest and refused to put on his elf shoes again.
So, there you have it – “Elf 2” never happened because of a mix of behind-the-scenes drama, the fear of looking like an aging elf, and a script that just didn’t cut it. Will Ferrell might not be returning as Buddy the Elf, but hey, we can always rewatch the original movie and enjoy the holiday spirit it brings every year.
