Disney is rebooting "Home Alone" and "Night at the Museum" for its new TV streaming service, which launches in the US in November and is intended to rival Netflix.
Chief executive Bob Iger said Disney was "focused on leveraging Fox's vast library of great titles... for example reimagining 'Home Alone,' 'Night at the Museum,' 'Cheaper by the Dozen,' and 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' for a new generation on Disney+."
"Nothing is more important to us than getting this right," he added in an earnings call Tuesday.
He did not clarify whether the new versions would be feature films or television programs.
The three "Home Alone" films that received theatrical releases together grossed $914.8 million (roughly Rs. 6,481 crores) at the global box office, not adjusted for inflation.
The 1990 original, in which eight-year-old Kevin McCallister is accidentally left behind when his family goes on vacation and must defend his home from inept burglars, is widely seen as a classic Christmas family movie.
No casting details have been announced for the remake. Macaulay Culkin, who as a child actor starred in the original, tweeted Wednesday: "Hey @Disney, call me!"
Ben Stiller's "Night at the Museum" trilogy, about a museum security guard trying to keep track of exhibits that come to life, has grossed over $1.35 billion (roughly Rs. 9,564 crores) worldwide.
Disney also owns Marvel Studios, which recently unveiled a slate of new superhero films and TV shows that will share characters and plotlines, blurring the line between the media.
Former Fox superhero movie franchises including "X-Men," "Fantastic 4" and "Deadpool" will now come under the Marvel umbrella, Iger said, adding that parent company Disney sees "great long-term value" in the titles.
After launching in the US on November 12 at a starting price of $6.99 (roughly Rs. 500) monthly, Disney+ will gradually expand internationally with a start in Europe.
