WATCH: Irish comedian dons English accent in trailer for Home Alone reboot

Irish comedian Aisling Bea has filled the shoes of Catherine O'Hara as the mother of a boy left home alone in a new Disney Plus reboot. 

O'Hara previously starred in the first and second Home Alone films as Kate McCallister, the mother of a boy left alone in his family house who must fend off notorious burglars. 

Bea's star has been on the rise over the past couple of years, particularly since winning a Bafta Award for Breakthrough Talent for her work on Channel 4 comedy, This Way Up. 

The talented comedian and actress has donned an English accent for the role, with some Twitter users uncertain about whether she's pulled it off.
