When a cute runaway alien genetic Experiment 626 crash-lands on Earth, it’s up to the independent girl, Lilo, to teach him the Hawaiian (and human!) value of friendship, loyalty and family. But is Experiment 626 (aka Stitch) only hardwired for havoc, or can he switch his m.o. from chaos to care?
Stitch on Trial
Stitch was created by Dr. Jumba Jookiba, an evil extra-terrestrial scientist who designed Stitch to be hyper intelligent, virtually indestructible and super strong—and hardwired for havoc! The galactic governing body decides Jookiba and Experiment 626 are too dangerous, so Jookiba is imprisoned and Stitch is sentenced to live out his days on an abandoned asteroid. Luckily, Stitch escapes his holding cell and flees to Earth. It’s there, while evading his captors, that Stitch disguises himself as a dog and gets adopted by Lilo.
Lilo lives with her 21-year-old sister Nani after their parents died in a tragic car crash. Lilo isn’t finding it easy to cope, and she’s lashing out at her friends, so when a social worker becomes concerned that Nani can’t parent her, Nani tries to help Lilo’s behavior with a trip to the animal shelter. It’s here that Lilo meets Stitch. The two bond almost immediately since they’re both a bit anti-social, and each teaches the other to chill out and enjoy life a little more.
DVD Special Features
The new 2-disc Big Wave Edition comes with over two hours of bonus features, including The Story Room—an interactive behind-the-scenes look at the making of Lilo and Stitch, some Island Adventure Games, a DisneyPedia look at the Hawaiian Islands and music videos featuring the A-Teens and The Hawaiian Chorus.
