The original director of ‘Home Alone’ criticizes the new Disney adaptation

Although the public been consuming saga reboots and remakes Since the Hollywood industry has existed, it seems that lately there is an upward trend in the creation of reboots. The first to criticize this lack of originality they are the original directors and screenwriters, who do not understand the need to bring the same products back to the big screen. The last ha sido Chris Columbus, The movie director Home alone, released in 1990. Columbus made headlines a few days ago, when he offered to continue the Harry Potter saga, with the adaptation of The cursed legacy. But now, instead of this nostalgic retrospective on his filmography, he has pointed in disgust towards Finally alone at home, the reboot that Disney prepares to premiere directly on your platform streaming.

It has been in an interview for ReelBlend, where the director has dispatched himself at ease in the face of the palpable lack of creativity that exists in today’s Hollywood: “In this version of Hollywood in which we live, everyone is redoing everything and restarting everything. I mean, a reboot is coming out of Home alone What is the point? The film exists, let’s just live with the film that existed ”.

Columbus was continuing with what seems like a very clear thought regarding the rising trend in Hollywood: “It makes no sense to remake The Wizard of OzIt doesn’t make sense for any of us to remake the classic movies. Make something original, because we need more original material. Then no. Has no sense”. It is not the first time that the filmmaker takes a position against the reboots, since last year he already expressed Insider how little sense it makes to remake a movie that has had the longevity of Home alone. Should Hollywood focus its energies on new stories or does it seek to renew these stories because it knows that in the end it is what global audiences are demanding?
