Lilo & Stitch to be remade as a live-action film

It's a sweet story about friendship and family, and you should really give it a chance if you haven't seen it yet, especially if you're a fan of directors Chris Sanders & Dean DeBlois' follow-up, How to Train Your Dragon. It's not known at this time whether the project will have a theatrical release, as it may be intended for Disney's upcoming streaming service. It was produced primarily at the Disney's Florida animation studio and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

Lilo and Stitch is following in the footsteps of Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book and many more as Disney plans to make a live-action remake of the 2002 animated film. Stitch would be the flawless pet if he weren't in reality a genetic experiment who has escaped from an alien planet and crash-landed on Earth.

Mike Van Waes has been hired to write the script, and the same team who is already working on the live-action Aladdin remake - Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich of Rideback (formerly Lin Pictures) - are attached to produce. Van Waes is a Disney newcomer, known in Hollywood mostly as a writer of horror. Lilo, a lonely Hawaiian girl, adopts the alien, thinking it's an ugly dog.

Lilo & Stitch didn't find great success at the box office, but was popular enough to spawn several direct-to-video sequels and television series.

According to a new report, the Lilo & Stitch remake will be a CGI/live-action hybrid. He wrote the upcoming Conjuring spinoff The Crooked Man, and he wrote the Wizard of Oz-inspired horror film Not in Kansas. The studio also has remakes of Dumbo, The Lion King and Mulan coming down the pipeline. We always love hearing from you.
