Disney is Making A Live-Action “Lilo & Stitch” For Disney+


Exciting news! Disney is making a live-action version of Lilo & Stitch exclusively for Disney+. The 2002 animated film was a huge hit for Disney and introduced Stitch to movie audiences. Since then, Stitch has grown to be a fan-favorite character and quite popular at Disney Parks.

We hear that the production of the Lilo & Stitch movie is set to begin in Fall 2020 in Hawaii. The remake will be a hybrid of live-action and CGI for the alien characters. Fans of the animated movie will be delighted to hear that the original voice of Stitch, Chris Sanders, might return to voice his character for the Disney+ movie.

Mike Van Waes wrote the script for the live-action Lilo & Stitch movie. Studio executives Zoe Kent and Louie Provost are in charge of this movie’s production. There’s no director attached to the project yet, but Disney will announce one once they have completed their search. Both Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich will produce this movie. They last worked on the 2019 Aladdin movie and are currently working on an Inspector Gadget movie for Disney+.

So far we have seen this brief synopsis for the live-action Lilo & Stitch remake:

The story is about the bond formed between a lonely island girl named Lilo and a dog-like alien named Stitch, who is engineered to be a force of destruction.

It’ll certainly be interesting to see how Stitch will look in a live-action movie. No word yet on what other alien characters are joining, but we hope to see Jumba and Pleakley. This movie will be a great addition to the Disney+ library of original content.

What do our followers think? Are you excited to see the live-action remake of Lilo & Stitch coming soon?
