Walt Disney Pictures has been pumping out content non-stop for the last several decades and with the recent success of their Star Wars, Marvel, and Pixar projects, they are showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Along with the large box office numbers being recorded for the aforementioned corners of the Disney universe, their live-action remakes of animated classics have garnered praise critically and made buckets of money both domestically and worldwide.
With the past releases of Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book, Christopher Robin, and Alice in Wonderland, and live-action films like Aladdin, The Lion King, and Dumbo all currently in production, Disney has added yet another classic, fan favorite animated classic to their docket in the form of Lilo & Stitch.
As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has hired Make Van Waes (The Crooked Man) to write the screenplay for a live-action remake of the beloved 2002 film Lilo & Stitch. Dan Line and Jonathan Eirich, who are currently hard at work producing the upcoming Aladdin live-action remake, are also attached as producers.
The original animated film told the story of an orphaned Hawaiian girl living with her older sister who bonds with an alien killing machine from outer space. One has to assume that a combination of live-action and CGI will be utilized to bring Stitch, Dr. Jumba Jookiba, and Agt. Wendell Pleakley to life.
