For anyone that has seen the original movie, you are likely curious as to what other Home Alone movies there might be. The sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York promises to explore the world of this film's characters in even more depth than the first movie.
In this movie, we are introduced to two new characters, Jacob and Pierce, the wealthy kids that were witnesses to the kid's demise during the opening scene. We also see how the introduction of this entire family changed the entire neighborhood. These kids are so successful in business, that the first-born of their family is now considered a rockstar.
They are often considered very rich and they even own a whole lot of planes and helicopters. This all started because one of their planes crashed into the ocean and never recovered. It is still unknown why their father decided to keep them in charge of such a huge amount of money and equipment.
Like in the first movie, this second season kicks off in the suburbs, with several changes from the first season. Instead of the hoods, we now have a beautiful woman named Annette. She comes to an auction to purchase a home that was featured in the last season and it was broken into. The bandit that did the break-in lives under the roof in a basement.
Another new character that makes his debut is Dwight's gang, the poor kids that he raised. In the beginning, they seem to be the main threat to Jacob and Pierce, but after an accident, we find out that they are actually doing a great job of protecting their new gangster friend. They also protect him from the Home Alone gang.
The show is set to continue at least through summer vacation, but there is no word yet on whether or not it will continue after that. Whether or not this show continues may depend on how well this first season does.
If the show does manage to continue, it is good to know that there will be new movie installments for fans of the original. The movie was such a hit that Disney and Lucasfilm have already started the plans for another sequel.
The plot of this first season is continuing in the second movie, Home Alone: The Legend Continues. It will be interesting to see if the same formula will work, or if the sequel will be different.
