Home Alone is one of those classics that frequently tops lists of the best Christmas films, and now there is a remake to help you relive the nostalgia of watching a child push a burglar down a flight of stairs. If you're looking to watch Home Sweet Home Alone, all you'll need is a Disney Plus subscription.

The release of this Christmas remake has actually timed up perfectly for new customers of Disney Plus, as the company is currently offering a huge discount on the subscription service.

Until 11.59pm PST on November 14, you can get Disney Plus for only £1.99/$1.99 for the first month. After that, it does go up to its full price in your region, but that means you can effectively pay just £1.99/$1.99 to watch Home Sweet Home Alone online.

As the the movie title suggests, this new release is a remake of the cult classic Christmas film featuring Macaulay Culkin. In this new version, Archie Yates steps in to play the abandoned child (known as Max Mercer in this film).

Following the general premise of the original movies, Max fights off two burglars trying to break into his house. He uses tricks, traps, general bodily harm and a few one liners here and there to keep them at bay until his parents can get back to him.

The film lines up an impressive cast, including Aisling Bea, Ellie Kemper, Rob Delaney, Pete Holmes and Chris Parnell. All with extensive comedy backgrounds, we'd expect this to be one of those feel-good comedy movies...with a hint of attempted violence on a child.

Arriving just before the festive season kicks in, you can now watch Home Sweet Home Alone online via a currently discounted Disney Plus sign-up.
