Disney fans, prepare to experience the magic of ‘ohana in a whole new way! Disney’s beloved animated classic *Lilo & Stitch* is getting the live-action treatment! Despite some fiery setbacks, this heartwarming tale is back on track, bringing our favorite blue alien and his adorable companion back to the screen.

The flickering flames of a trailer fire on set may have delayed production, but nothing could extinguish the excitement surrounding this remake. Filming resumed in May, ensuring that Stitch, Lilo, and even Scrump will grace our screens hopefully by summer 2025! And to add to the excitement, this live-action adaptation will feature a mix of live-action and state-of-the-art CGI, promising a visual treat for audiences of all ages.

Introducing Maia Kealoha, the bright new talent bringing Lilo to life! With previous voices provided by Daveigh Chase and Dakota Fanning, Kealoha steps into these big shoes with fans eagerly watching. Alongside her, Sydney Agudong takes on the role of Nani, while iconic performers such as Amy Hill, Courtney B. Vance, and Tia Carrere (returning as Mrs. Kekoa) round out this stellar cast. Chris Sanders returns to voice Stitch, ensuring the mischievous charm we all adore, complemented by Billy Magnussen as Pleakley and Zach Galifianakis as Jumba!

And where will this adventure unfold? The picturesque beaches of Oahu, Hawaii, serve as the stunning backdrop. While the animated original was set on Kauai, the live-action rendition might introduce some changes, but the Hawaiian spirit will be ever-present.

Visionaries Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, known for their phenomenal work on the live-action *Aladdin*, bring this project to life, with a script penned by emerging screenwriter Mike Van Waes. Known for his horror writing, Van Waes’s involvement promises a fresh and thrilling narrative twist while staying true to the beloved heart of the story.
