Dir: Chris Sanders, Dean DeBlois, G, United States, 2001, 85mins, 35mm,

When extraterrestrial experiment Stitch accidentally lands in Hawaii, he is unwittingly adopted as a dog by young orphan Lilo – much to the chagrin of her older sister Nani, who is busy trying to prove she can care for Lilo. 

With intergalactic authorities on the hunt for Stitch, and a social worker threatening to place Lilo in care, there is much at stake for this unlikely pair. Unfamiliar with human customs and created to wreak havoc, Stitch has an opportunity to discover the meaning of family and connection. 

Filled with the signature humour, hijinks and heart of the best Disney animation, Lilo & Stitch is great fun for the whole family.
