Just in case you were starting to work on your holiday wish list you can cross off “Ask Santa for a new Home Alone movie”. According to ABC Family, the memorable holiday film will be back at the end of the year with Home Alone 5: Alone in the Dark. But fans of the film don’t need to worry if they missed Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House — the fifth installment will introduce entirely new characters. The story follows eight-year-old Finn (played by Christian Martyn) and his sister (Jodelle Ferland) who are left alone in a new house they deem haunted. While the two work to set up ghost traps, they are later forced to protect their house from intruders (played by Debi Mazar, Malcolm McDowell, and Eddie Steeples).
The film is currently under production and is set to air sometime during ABC Family’s “25 Days of Christmas” — giving a whole new meaning to happy holidays.
