Live Action Lilo and Stitch
In recent years, Disney has begun creating a string of live-action remakes of its classic animated films. Soon, a new film will join live-action creations based on The Lion King, Mulan, Aladdin, Lady and the Tramp, Dumbo, Beauty and the Beast, and the soon-to-be-released reboot of The Little Mermaid.
Disney’s cult hit Lilo and Stitch (2002) is getting a reboot over 20 years after its theatrical release. Fan reactions to the idea of yet another remake have certainly been mixed. These live-action remakes are certainly polarizing among Disney fans; some enjoy them and others absolutely loathe them.

Zach Galifianakis has been cast in the upcoming live-action Lilo and Stitch. You may know this comedic actor from his work on The Hangover. But he is no stranger to voice work. He played Ron in Ron’s Gone Wrong for example.
