Disney’s ‘Lilo and Stitch’ Is Getting a Live-Action Remake
Disney continues to keep your childhood alive. Alongside several other remakes of classic titles, a live-action remake of the 2002 classic Lilo and Stitch is now also in the works.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the remake of the animated film will be done with both live-action and CGI. Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who are currently working on the highly anticipated live-action version of Aladdin, are producing the project, and up-and-coming screenwriter Mike Van Waes, who has previously worked primarily in the horror genre, will pen the script.
The Lilo and Stitch remake is the latest in a long list of classic titles that Disney is reimagining and reinvigorating for the modern big screen. The surge in films kicked off in earnest with 2017’s Beauty and the Beast, followed by Christopher Robin this past August.
Next up will be The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, adapted from a sequence in the groundbreaking 1940s film and due out in November, followed by Mary Poppins Returns in December, Dumbo, Aladdin, The Lion King, and Lady in the Tramp, which are all scheduled for release in 2019, and Mulan and Maleficent II in 2020.
