BuzzFeed News has confirmed that Disney is working on a live-action version of Lilo & Stitch.
The original 2002 animated film focuses on young Lilo discovering and adopting an unusual doglike pet she names Stitch. Though Stitch was developed to be an alien killing machine, Lilo gives him a new lease on life by introducing him to the Hawaiian lifestyle and teaching him the meaning of family.
Up-and-coming screenwriter Mike Van Waes will write the new film. It'll be produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who also produced the upcoming Aladdin live-action film directed by Guy Ritchie.
While some people are hyped about another beloved Disney Animation Studios film getting the live-action treatment...
...others are wondering how Disney will be able to bring an alien like Stitch to life.
And when the Disney remake trend will end.
As the film is still in the very early stages, a release date is unknown. It is also unclear whether the film will be released theatrically or on Disney's upcoming streaming service.
