Lilo & Stitch is, in effect, this generation’s Dumbo.
Having lost money on previous films The Emperor’S New Groove and Atlantis: The Lost Empire, CEO Michael Eisner decided their next film would have a much smaller scale, a move inspired by the little pachyderm, and it worked.
Lilo & Stitch was in fact the first animated feature to use watercolour-painted backgrounds since Dumbo and hand-drawn (if computer-coloured) cells. A conscious effort was made to give it a warmer,old-fashioned look, dispensing with the “Deep Canvas” technique used in Tarzan, Atlantis and it’s immediate followup Treasure Planet, and having a minimum number of shots using either a “multiplane” or “3D camera” effect. This decision required a lot of background artists to be trained in the technique.
The lead character, Stitch, had been created some fifteen years earlier by head storyboard artist Chris Sanders »
