Lilo & Stitch is getting the live-action treatment.
The 2002 animated movie Lilo & Stitch is getting the live-action treatment by Disney. Newcomer Maia Kealoha is playing Lilo, according to THR. She is joining the previously announced Zach Galifianakis. Dean Fleischer Camp, the director of Marcel the Shell With Shoes On, will helm the film. Stay tuned for more!
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.
