Disney cashes in on Fox archives, “Home Alone” and “Night at the Museum” rebooted

You can’t help but notice Disney’s mission creep as it dives deeper into the Marvel business, the gold mine that has made the studio forgo pretty much everything else — save for remaking their animated classics as “live action” (not really) features.

What happened to kids’ fare, the non animated side of their original business?

Two franchises that the “Absent Minded Professor” “Escape from Witch Mountain” company could have made, but that Fox did instead, are now in Disney’s possession. So why not remake “Home Alone” and the far more recent “Night at the Museum?” That’s the thinking, anyway.
