CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
"As Elvis might put it, you can't help falling in love with LILO & STITCH." -- Claudia Puig, USA TODAY. Out-of-this-world storytelling, stunning Disney animation, and wild and irresistible characters are at the heart of Disney's hilarious new animated adventure. This worldwide box office sensation is a heartwarming comedy about the power of loyalty, friendship, and finding your place in the world. On the lush and tropical Hawaiian Islands, an independent little girl named Lilo adopts what she thinks is an innocent puppy, completely unaware that he is a mischievous creature who has escaped from a faraway planet. Stitch takes Hawaii by storm, wreaking havoc and hanging ten while he evades the alien bounty hunters who are bent on recapturing him. It's an action-packed comedy the whole family will enjoy over and over again.

The movie consists of two stories, Stitch's and Lilo's, both of which are different takes on The Ugly Duckling.
Stitch's creator, Dr. Jumba Jookiba is found guilty of illegal genetic engineering (creating Stitch) and Stitch (known before his meeting with Lilo at the shelter as Experiment 626) is sentenced to exile on an asteroid after offending the council. He escapes his prison pod and hijacks a police cruiser, activated hyperdrive and ends up en route to Kauai, Hawaii
Meanwhile, a young Hawaiian girl named Lilo is coping with the changes with her sister Nani being in charge after their parents were killed in a road accident. Under the supervision of Cobra Bubbles, a freelancer among social workers, Nani is to get her life in order and a job to support herself and Lilo.
Not long after Cobra's visit, 626 crashlands in the Kauai Rainforest and get hit by a truck (Luckily, his genetic makeup makes him pretty indestructible). He ends up at the animal shelter and Lilo meets him, making known as Stitch from then on.
Cobra comes back to add another item to the list: make Stitch into a model citizen.
Like most of Disney's animated features from 1937 to 2011, this was hand drawn and for this film features watercolor painting backgrounds, which were featured in early Disney films.
The music composed of Alan Silvestri's score, two original songs sung by a Hawaiian children's choir and a local celebrity in Hawaii and of course, some of Elvis Presley's hits which are sung either by The King himself or by artists covering him in the spirit of the movie. Its eclectic charm highlights the personality of the entire setting and characters (Lilo and Stitch)
The vocals are just great. I didn't know much about Daveigh Chase (voice of Lilo) as an up and coming star and I really haven't heard much since Leroy and Stitch. Daveigh's credits include Samara in the American Version of The Ring and Sen\Chihiro in the English dub of Spirited Away (a production produced by Disney in conjunction with the currently in limbo Studio Ghibli). For the actors who lived in Hawaii, they gave insight to cast members who lived elsewhere in vocal acting by teaching terminology and local language.
Tia Carrere has numerous credits and yes, after watching Wayne's World 1, I am stuck with a visual that comes from the fact she didn't really change her voice.
Stitch is voiced by his creator, Chris Sanders, who also directed and wrote the movie.
Fun fact: Preliminary art dating back to 1985 shows that Stitch originally looked like a monitor lizard than a blue koala.
The movie was rated PG for Mild Sci-fi Action. However, the concept of all inclusive family values in that "Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten" is a value I hold dear. I even add the notion of "lost" to my definition of this value.
It's been a while since I last saw this movie and it did not disappoint. It's like I remembered it all those years ago.
There are so many reasons why I give Lilo & Stitch a perfect score. For starters, the writers decided to tell a story of a family going through hard times and they do such an excellent job. I found myself caring for Lilo and Nani, hoping for things to end in the usually happy way that Disney movies do.
I also love the character Stitch. He has the friendly looks of ET and some of the most energetic antics I have ever seen in a cartoon character. Stitch is an absolute welcome sight for any die hard Disney fan.
The animation is also spectacular. The use of Hawaii as the setting gives Lilo & Stitch a beautiful looking back drop. The use of water colors being blended in with traditional animation is stunning.
Lilo & Stitch also has a great soundtrack with a perfect selection of Elvis Presley songs that are complemented by the score of Back to the Future composer Alan Silvestri.
The movie also delivers important messages for kids in a very entertaining way. Stitch is the perfect solution for the trouble that Lilo and Nani have been facing, but during the films climax it seems as though they feel like he is not. This tells kids to be careful when searching for the solution to their problems. On top of that there is the theme of ohana. Ohana is Hawaiin for family. Lilo says that family means that nobody gets left behind or forgotten. The use of this theme brings my to tears.
The writing is excellent, the characters are great, the animation is spectacular, and the messages for kids are delivered perfectly. Lilo & Stitch is a rare movie that is as close to perfect entertainment and rightfully deserves my seal of approval.
I find it rather obnoxious that the Disney company would want to can it.Of course, we have Stitch now in Japan, with his new female friend.Having seen so much of Stitch, Lilo and Nani (and not knowing what happened to them prior to his appearence in Japan)it is a little hard to adjust to Stitch's new friends.I see on Amazon Jp. that they have a big selection of Stitch's escapades....all made in Japan.....and, I sadly say, most probably all in the Japanese language.I have written to Amazon Jp. asking if the discs have English subtitles.NO REPLY.But, I am again visiting Japan (for the 9th time) in January. So, if they do have English versions guess who's going to come home with a suitcase full.
But, apart from those anomalies, do not refuse to buy Stitch and his friends, they are just so great to see. I like them so much.....I paid $200+ for a Stitch plush. He has pride of place on my bed.(I don't have space to sit him in my lounge room!!!!).
