“My poor sweet little angel”, a new version and lucky “reboot” of the Christmas classic “My poor little angel” starring the British Archie Yates will arrive on November 12 on the Disney + streaming platform.
As reported by the specialized site Vulture, Yates, who gained notoriety after his adorable and friendly secondary role as Yorki in “Jojo Rabbit” (2019, by Taika Waititi), will play Max in this new proposal, a boy who like him iconic Kevin McAllister played by Macaulay Culkin in “My poor little angel” (1990) and “My poor little angel 2: Lost in New York” (1992), is left alone at home after his family forgot him when they went on a trip.
In the images of the trailer for the film that was published this Tuesday on social networks, it is anticipated that the parents and siblings of little Max – 10 years old – are leaving for Tokyo, after which the protagonist must face the threat of a pair of robbers played by Rob Delaney (“Deadpool 2”) and Ellie Kemper (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”).
In what appears to be an attempt to stay true to legendary screenwriter John Hughes’ original and infallible formula, director Dan Mazer – remembered for his screenwriting work on “Borat” (2006) and “Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm” (2020) – and the writer Mikey Day will bet again on the string of gags, falls, blows and witty humor and for the whole family that their predecessors appealed to.
“My Poor Little Angel”, which also featured Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern, John Heard and Catherine O’Hara, became a box office hit, ranking as the highest grossing comedy until 2011 (with the premiere of ” What Happened Yesterday? Part II “) and transformed Culkin into a Hollywood child star.
After its sequel in 1992 -like the first, directed by Chris Columbus-, the franchise expanded with other casts in “My poor little angel 3” (1997) and the television movies “Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House “(2002) and” Home Alone: The Holiday Heist “(2012).
