The first trailer for Disneys Home Alone sequel, Home Sweet Home Alo, was released Tuesday, showcasing two comedians with local ties who will star in the film.

Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) first defended his home from burglars in 1990s Home Alone, Disney is now focused on the Mercer family, who accidentally leave their son Max (Archie Yates) at home while on a trip to Tokyo.

While Max, like Kevin, celebrates his new freedom with piles of junk food, he must also protect the family home against intruders. This time, the burglars are a married couple, played by Ellie Kemper and Marblehead native Rob Delaney, who are trying to steal heirloom goods.

The cast also includes Lexington native Pete Holmes as Maxs bumbling uncle Blake, and Aisling Bea as Carol s mom. Kenan Thompson, Ally Maki, Timothy Simons, and Chris Parnell are among the supporting cast members.

Devin Ratray may also make an appearance as a grown-up version of Buzz McCallister, the role RatRay played in the 1990 film.

Home Sweet Home Alone was written by Saturday Night Live cast member Mikey Day and SLL writer Streeter Seidell, and is directed by Dan Mazer (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm). The Home Alone sequel will be released on Disney+ on Nov. 12.
