What is Home Alone about?

Home Alone is mostly about Kevin McCallister, and his family’s surprising inability to keep a good eye on him. The first movie takes place at the McCallister residence, where Kevin is left home alone after his family accidentally forget to take him on their trip to Paris.

But Kevin’s not totally alone, he ends up having to defend his home against two bumbling burglars, Marv and Harry. Hijinks ensue throughout this story, with Kevin learning an important lesson about family on the way.

This is definitely one of the most well-known and well-loved Christmas moves out there, and is a much-watch this festive season.

Disney+ also has the rights to the other films in the series, including the excellent sequel ‘Lost in New York’ and the just-released Home Sweet Home Alone.
