Our favorite mischevious extraterrestrial creature from “Lilo and Stitch” is getting a live-action remake!
The film follows Lilo, a Hawaiian girl being raised by her older sister, and Stitch, an extraterrestrial blue creature. They develop a close bond through the Hawaiian concept of “ohana” – family. Their bond causes Stitch (real name Experiment 626) to defy his mad scientist creator and not cause chaos.
Released in 2002, it did well at the box office and even spawned some sequels. There was a straight-to-video sequel called “Stitch! The Movie” and a television series called “Lilo & Stitch: The Series.”
Subsequent sequels and series followed in the years after.
