Which Culkin Lit Up the Screen as Kevin McCallister?

As the holiday season approaches, the perennial favorite “Home Alone” takes its place in the hearts of moviegoers. One burning question that often surfaces is: Which Culkin was in “Home Alone”?

Macaulay Culkin’s Starring Role in Home Alone

The mischievous and resourceful Kevin McCallister was brought to life by none other than Macaulay Culkin.

In the original “Home Alone” film, released in 1990, Culkin’s endearing performance as the young boy accidentally left behind during a family vacation catapulted him to superstardom.

His comedic timing, innocence, and ability to outsmart the bumbling burglars endeared him to audiences worldwide.

The Sequel’s Success

The success of “Home Alone” paved the way for a sequel, and once again, Macaulay Culkin reprised his role as Kevin McCallister in “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York,” released in 1992.

The film transported Kevin to the bustling streets of New York City, where he once again faced the challenges of fending for himself while outsmarting the Wet Bandits.

Home Alone 3 and the Absence of Macaulay Culkin

While the first two films solidified Macaulay Culkin as the quintessential Kevin McCallister, a change took place with the third installment, “Home Alone 3,” released in 1997.

Notably, Macaulay Culkin did not reprise his role in this chapter of the franchise. Instead, the film introduced a new character, Alex Pruitt, portrayed by Alex D. Linz, marking a departure from the original storyline and characters.
