This begs the question: how many Home Alone movies are there in total?

How Many Home Alone Movies Are There?

There are a total of six Home Alone movies to date. Despite this, they all don't belong on the same narrative.

The first two films and the fourth installment are part of the same story that focuses on Kevin McCallister. The other three, on the other hand, are standalone films.

Disney came out with a Home Sweet Home Alone in 2021 that seems to be connected to the original trilogy.

No. While all these films follow the same theme, they are not all connected. The only ones that are directly linked are the first Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York films, which follows the same Kevin played by Macaulay Culkin. The fourth film, Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House, is somewhat connected to the first two films but has a different cast.

Since the franchise is a classic, it's possible that there will be more movies and reboots of the story. But one thing we now is that Macaulay Culkin will no longer star as Kevin McCallister, unless he will be cast as the dad of a new boy left behind by his family during Christmas. And this is because Culkin is already 42 years old. When he filmed Home Alone, he was only 10 years old.

The last time he made his return as the iconic character was for this Google Assistant parody released in 2019:
