Released in 2002, the animated feature from Walt Disney Animation features "Experiment 626" aka Stitch who has landed on earth and befriends a young girl named Lilo.
Lin and Eirich are the same team now working on the live-action remake of Aladdin, scheduled to be released in May 2019.
Disney has announced Lilo & Stitch as the next entry in its successful line of lice-action remakes of classic cartoons.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, producers Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich have hired writer Mike Van Waes to write the script for the film. He penned the script for The Crooked Man, a spinoff of The Conjuring that is now in development.
It's not yet known if the live-action/CGI hybrid Lilo & Stitch would find its way into theaters or if it would be kept for Disney's streaming service launching next year. The story centers on Lilo, a lonely Hawaiian girl who adopts a small ugly "dog", whom she names Stitch.
The live-action version may be released theatrically or on Disney's forthcoming streaming service. This time, it's Lilo & Stitch that'll make the jump. Stitch, who is engineered to cause chaos, has a change of heart as Lilo teaches Stitch the importance of ohana, the Hawaiian concept of family.
We're not sure how you improve upon perfection, but Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella, starring Lily James and Cate Blanchett, did just fine redoing one of the company's peaks.
