Lilo and Stitch is one of the best animated comic movies offered by Disney. Though it is a movie developed for kids and adults, it is one of the first movies to cover major issues like global warming and the beauty of Hawaiian culture, which is still underrated. There were many major and minor issues covered in the film, which made people love it. After years of wait, Lilo & Stitch has finally made its way to screens as live-action. Unlike most live-action remakes, we hope that Disney will revisit the issues mentioned in the original movie. Here is everything we have gathered about Lilo and Stitch live-action remake.
Lilo and Stitch Live Action Remake Plot
According to the sources, Lilo and Stitch will continue the Disney trend of keeping the original plot in line. It is reported that the remake is going to be a perfect combination of live-action and CGI. Fans are eagerly waiting to see where producers and directors use that option of live action. It is also expected that Disney is going to stick close to the original movie premise.
The original movie was positioned as a perfect family movie reflecting real struggles in a way that even children can understand them. Though most of Disney’s recent live-action movies are thoroughly criticized, fans hope that the upcoming live-action movie of Lilo and Stitch will improve the storyline of the original animated film. However, there are only assumptions at this moment, as none of the cast or crew members have made anything official about the upcoming movie.
Lilo & Stitch: The Cast & Crew
Not all the cast members are yet confirmed by Disney. The only cast member confirmed is the voice of Stitch. The voice will be played by Chris Sanders, who also played the voice of Stitch in the original Lilo and Stitch movie.
