The Lilo & Stitch live-action adaptation is set to start filming this fall and will be set to premiere as an original film on Disney+.
According to Disinsider, Lilo & Stitch is set to be a live-action/CGI hybrid film that is set to start filming in Hawaii. They also report that the original voice for Stitch, Chris Sanders, is expected to reprise the role for the film adaptation.
Like the original 2002 animated series, Lilo & Stitch is about a lonely girl named Lilo who discovers a dangerous alien named Stich who is on the run from intergalactic forces. Stitch disguises themselves as a dog (sorta) and hides out with Lilo as the two become friends.
When Lilo & Stitch was first released in 2002, it grossed $273 million at the box office on an $80 million budget. The success led to several sequels and spinoffs including a few DVD movie sequels and an animated TV series for the Disney Channel.
There’s no design yet for what Stitch might look like, but the character will presumably be in CGI unless Disney decides to go a more practical route for the character like Baby Yoda in The Mandalorian.
