Disney’s Live-Action ‘Lilo & Stitch’ Remake Lands ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Director Jon M. Chu. Production of the Lilo & Stitch live-action movie was initially projected to begin filming in Hawaii this Fall, however due to the COVID-19 pandemic the film is still in pre-production and has just signed on Director Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians).

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. Both Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich are set to produce the live-action remake.

A tale of a young girl’s close encounter with the galaxy’s most wanted extraterrestrial. Lilo is a lonely Hawaiian girl who adopts a small ugly “dog,” whom she names Stitch. Stitch would be the perfect pet if he weren’t in reality a genetic experiment who has escaped from an alien planet and crash-landed on Earth. Through her love, faith and unwavering belief in ohana, the Hawaiian concept of family, Lilo helps unlock Stitch’s heart and gives him the ability to care for someone else.

Lilo & Stitch, Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch, Leroy & Stitch, Stitch! The Movie, and Lilo & Stitch: The Series are all available to stream on Disney+. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Disney!
