Disney reveals the next Disney+ exclusive

Now that Disney+ is established and doing well, a lot of movies that might have been planned for release on the big screen are now coming exclusively to the streaming service. Take “Lady and the Tramp” for example. The big production was released only on Disney+ and was met with a lot of praise and love.

Now, a live-action “Lilo & Stitch” film is in the works. The original animated film was released in 20002 as the company’s 42nd animated feature film. Directed by Dean BeBlois and Chris Sanders (also the voice of Stitch), the movie was the second of three Disney animated features that were produced primarily at Disney Hollywood Studios in Florida. The other two animated films produced in Florida were “Mulan” and “Brother Bear.”

“Lilo & Stitch” touched hearts everywhere and the famous quote “Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind” became cemented in the minds of children and adults alike. The film was even nominated for the 2002 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

The upcoming live-action is said to be a CGI hybrid project. Word of the planned remake first made headlines back in 2018, but progress and updates on the project have been little to none since.

But after much excitement and along awaited anticipation, Disney is moving forward with plans to bring it straight to the small screen. The project is set to begin filming in Hawaii this fall with an expected release date for 2021. Sanders is also expected to return to voice the titular alien. No word yet on other potential cast members.
