As filming continues (production is beleived to have wrapped late last year, so there's a chance reshoots are now underway) on Disney's live-action remake of Lilo and Stitch, some new photos from the set have found their way online, and they give us our best look yet at the movie's title characters.

The photos and videos feature Maia Kealoha as Lilo, and while her alien pal Stitch will (presumably) be a fully CGI creation, we also catch a glimpse of the initially ferocious (but adorable) little fella sitting in a car.

We don't actually know what methods will be utilized to bring Stitch to life in the movie, but there's a chance this "stand in" is actually an animatronic, and not just a prop to give he actors something to work with. Either way, Stitch's character design looks practically identical to his animated counterpart.

Check out the photos at the links below, and keep an eye out for updates.

The original animated film focused on a young Hawaiian girl named Lilo Pelekai who forms a bond with a blue alien called Experiment 626, who was engineered to be a force of destruction. It wasn't considered one of the Mouse House's bigger hits from a box office standpoint, but it remains a very popular entry in Disney's library, having spawned three direct-to-video sequels and a 2003 TV series.

An early synopsis reads: "Lilo and Stitch tells the story of the bond formed between a lonely human girl named Lilo and a dog-like alien named Stitch, who is engineered to be a force of destruction. Pursuing aliens, social workers, and the idea of the bond of family figure into the proceedings."

Zach Galifianakis, Sydney Agudong, Billy Magnussen, Courtney B. Vance, and original animated movie voice actors Tia Carrere, Amy Hill, and Jason Scott Lee will also star. Chris Sanders will once again voice Stitch.

Dean Fleischer Camp is directing, and the script was written by Chris Kekaniokalani Bright, with Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich producing under their Rideback production banner.

The movie is expected to debut on Disney+ this summer.

Looks [frick]ing terrible Disney stop it with these terrible remakes... Just make Atlantis and close the franchise
bkmeijer1 - 2/19/2024, 2:02 AM
@Saga - and Treasure Planet. If they're doing remakes, I think they should do the lesser known ones. The famous ones don't need more popularity anyway, as they already have it

@bkmeijer1 - exaaactly, treasure planet, atlantis and Titan AE live action with matt damon.
Fogs - 2/19/2024, 2:43 AM
@Matchesz - Titan AE was really good. Used to own the DVD and really liked it.
dancingmonkey08 - 2/19/2024, 7:57 AM
@Matchesz - I was going to say Titan AE was not a Disney movie but Fox, but now that they own them, they could technically do a live action movie. I would be all for it, because that was great movie that was underrated

Matt Damon could even play Cales dad! :)

@Saga - So stop making remakes…except for Atlantis lol
bkmeijer1 - 2/19/2024, 2:03 AM
Was kinda hoping this would feature a Grogu-like puppet, but this just looks like a stand-in for when they'll fix it in post

hopefully they dont tone down stitch's meanness (pre becoming good)
JustAWaffle - 2/19/2024, 3:17 AM
I don’t get why they think these needed a live action take. It’s a great stand alone movie that got a handful of unneeded sequels that didn’t do very well.
Origame - 2/19/2024, 7:44 AM
@JustAWaffle - creative bankruptcy
dragon316 - 2/19/2024, 10:45 AM

Mark my words. They're gonna remake Nightmare Before Christmas soon.
sully - 2/19/2024, 3:29 AM
@CoHost - Not a remake, but I would absolutely be down for sequels exploring all the other holidays that were teased in the tree door scene. I've always wanted this.
sully - 2/19/2024, 3:28 AM
Another "Small cute expressive character" that Disney can milk, just like they do/did with Baby Groot, Rocket, Grogu, Goose, and so on...

Who wants to wager on the fact the live-action Stitch is gonna end up looking like Boo in her disguise?

Cap-on though...

Lilo and Stitch came out in 2002. Most users here with their references, world views and tastes (especially their encyclopedic knowledge of comics from the 60s they somehow have read every issue of, means they have to at least be in there late 60's and goes down from there.

Meaning a bunch of not just grown men, but almost octogenarians are spending their time online complaining about the movie being remade ruining their childhood, which apparently was when they were in their 30s.

@SATW42 - That means nothing as a defense for the total lack of creativity and likely quality if much of their recent outings may be percieved.

As a 33 year old man, I am against needless, diminishing quality and lacking creativity remakes.

Get out of here with this defense for a corporate product because people dared to tarnish it with their criticism.
SATW42 - 2/19/2024, 10:30 PM
@dagenspear - I more than likely won’t see this, unless I watch it some afternoon with my kids (although, I haven’t watched any of the live action remakes outside of jungle book so it’s very possible I never see this)

You can just not watch it and not dedicate precious moments of your life complaining about children’s content
