Although fans have been begging the Walt Disney Company to cease its habit of bringing classic animated tales back to life with live-action versions, the Mouse is insistent on the remakes.

While there’s currently a “list that’s three miles long” of Disney remakes that were being considered or were actually in production (before the current strikes began), one of the most infamous on the list was Lilo & Stitch.

“Ohana Means Family, and Family Means Nobody Gets Left Behind”

The thing about these remakes is that they often try to fix any lingering mistakes that have been frozen in time due to the film’s release date. But with the original Lilo & Stitch (2002), there…aren’t any mistakes to be found.

By all accounts, the original film is one of the most beloved and well-made Disney movies around. Depending on who you ask, it may be the very best Disney movie. In any case, this film has garnered countless fans who fell in love with the film’s broken family and the strange little alien who put it back together.
