‘Lilo & Stitch’ Live-Action Movie Release Date Revealed

Several years have passed since Disney announced its live-action version of ‘Lilo & Stitch.‘ This time has brought numerous casting updates and a handful of controversies. Yet, we still awaited details on the release date.

However, recently, Daniel Richtman, a well-regarded insider, reported that the live-action ‘Lilo & Stitch’ is expected to premiere on Disney+ in June 2024.

Although this isn’t official confirmation, and Disney is known for adjusting release dates, Daniel Richtman is generally considered a reliable source.

No further details have been released by Richtman. However, we can confidently support a June release date. This timing seems ideal, as the movie appears to be a perfect fit for a summer release.

Lilo & Stitch Casting News

In April, it was reported that Chris Sanders is in final negotiations to voice the character of Stitch in Disney’s live-action remake of “Lilo & Stitch”.

Tia Carrere, who originally voiced Nani in the first film, will also play the newly created Mrs. Kekoa, while Amy Hill will star as a new character named Tūtū.

Previously announced cast includes newcomer Maia Kealoha who will play Lilo in the movie, Sydney Elizabeth Agudong who is set to play Lilo’s older sister and legal guardian,

Jolene Purdy will play child services agent Mrs. Kekoa, Courtney B. Vance who will play Cobra Bubbles and Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) and Billy Magnussen (No Time to Die) in undisclosed roles.

Kaipot Dudoit will replace newcomer Kahiau Machado as David in Disney+’s live-action remake of “Lilo & Stitch.”  According to THR, the recasting was due to previous posts in which Machado used racial slurs that were uncovered on social media.

Lilo & Stitch Live-Action Plot Details:

The remake is said to follow the same story as the 2002 animated film which follows the friendship formed between a lonely human girl named Lilo and an alien named Stitch.  The original movie was written and directed by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois.

With June fast approaching, we’re likely not too far away from a trailer at this point. It’s also definitely possible that we get a first look early next year when Disney begins to promote content coming to Disney+ in 2024.
