What has Disney done to Stitch?!
For the last 100 years, the Walt Disney Company has been responsible for bringing so many incredible characters to the hearts of fans everywhere. Of all the Disney characters, one of the most beloved is Sitch, the adorable alien from Lilo & Stitch. It was Stitch’s mischievous and adorable personality that won over the hearts of Disney fans everywhere. Today, Stitch is still one of Disney’s most popular characters, and his fanbase is stronger than ever.
When Disney announced that they were doing a live-action Lilo & Stitch, the Disney community immediately felt very divided on the idea. Some fans are thrilled at the idea of seeing these iconic characters come back to life in such a big way. Others feel burnt out by all of the live action remake movies and question how well the film will be executed. A new leaked image of the upcoming film has left fans feeling more worried than ever.
Leaked Image From ‘Lilo & Sitch’ Leaves Fans Worried
The last few weeks have been rocky for Lilo & Stitch from a PR standpoint. The film cast reveal has sparked a massive debate over the ‘white washing’ of the character Nani. On top of that, many fans began to get concerned over how Disney would CGI the film’s alien characters like Stitch, Pleakley, and Jumba Jookiba.
This is why fans were horrified to see what appeared to be a leaked picture of Stitch from the upcoming film. The internet exploded with fans demanding Disney change the “horrific” design.
It turns out that this image was actually created using Artificial Intelligence. Thankfully, this is not the version we will be seeing in the upcoming film. Hopefully, Disney is still using this as an opportunity to hear the fan’s critics before they release their version of Stitch.
As of now, the live action Lilo & Stitch is set to release sometime in 2024 or early 2025. The Disney live action remake will star Chris Sanders, Zach Galifianakis, newcomer Maia Kealoha, Courtney B Vance, Sydney Agudong, Billy Magnussen, and more.
