Zach Galifianakis Cast in Upcoming Lilo & Stitch Live-Action Remake
The live-action movie follows the hit 2002 animated family film, which grossed $273 million at the global box office. Written and directed by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois, “Lilo & Stitch” centers on 6-year-old Lilo and her teenage sister Nani, who live in Hawaii and adopt an adorable — though sometimes a little destructive — blue extraterrestrial creature nicknamed Stitch. While the movie featured catchy songs, like “Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride,” it also introduced audiences to the concept of ohana, which means family — and as Stitch instills in the group, “family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.”
