Lilo & Stitch

The genetic experiment ‘Lilo & Stitch’ (2002) came to the big screen introducing our fans to the wild and sweet character Stitch. Stitch is an experiment that escapes outer space and is adopted by Lilo as what she presumes is a dog. We soon realize Stitch is so much more than just a pet, but a part of the family. Stitch soon realizes the meaning of love and family, learning the true meaning of “Ohana.”
