They Forgot Me at Home, Sweet Home takes place in the same universe as Macaulay Culkin’s Kevin. With that, as expected, the Disney+ movie brings some references.
Some are clearer as they happen directly to the plot. Meanwhile, others become details throughout the new Disney+ movie.

Buzz, Kevin’s older brother, returns as the policeman who shows up at Max’s house. However, the officer shows that he is not very good at investigating.
what happened to kevin
Kevin’s brother, upon appearing, tells what happened to Macaulay Culkin’s character. He works with home security systems, starting with the McCallisters. It was a way to overcome childhood trauma.
Every year, Kevin tricks Buzz with calls from children who would have been left alone at home.
Little Nero continues to be the pizza for the Home Alone families. As in the classic, the characters from No Lar, Doce Lar order from the same restaurant.[display-posts orderby="rand"]

In the original Home Alone, Kevin cannot see the movie Angels With Filthy Souls alone. In No Lar, Sweet Home, Hunther is watching the remake of the film, but not liking what they did to the story.
tooth fairy works again
In the original story, Joe Pesci’s thug loses a gold tooth because of Kevin. In the Disney+ remake, Jeff loses a real tooth because of Max.

Kevin had to deal with Uncle Frank. In Forgot Me at Home, Sweet Home brings two characters to play this role: Uncle Stu and Uncle Blake.
The songs from Forgot Me

The writers didn’t want to put so many lines from Kevin to Max. But one of them was used in the new Home Alone: ”Have you given up or do you want even more?”
