It was bound to happen sooner or later and it appears the time is now for Lilo & Stitch to receive the live-action treatment. The 2002 animated comedy joins a long list of Disney films to receive live-action remakes including Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Beauty and The Beast to name a few.
Lilo & Stitch centers around a young Hawaiian girl named Lilo who befriends a tiny blue alien named Stitch aka Experiment 626. It wasn’t a huge blockbuster hit but it did spawn several direct-to-video sequels and television series. Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who are working on the live-action remake of Aladdin will produce the film.
No release date has been announced for the film, but we have plenty of other live-action Disney remakes in the pipeline to look forward to. Tim Burton’s Dumbo, Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin, and Jon Favreau’s The Lion King all come out in 2019 with a Mulan scheduled for 2020.
