In a place far, far away, illegal genetic experiment #626 is detected: Ruthless scientist Dr. Jumba Jookiba has created a strong, intelligent, nearly indestructible and aggressive being with only one known weakness: The high density of his body makes it impossible for the experiment to swim in water. The scientist is sentenced to jail by the Grand Council of the Galactic Federation. The experiment is supposed to be transported to a prison asteroid, yet manages to escape Captain Gantu, who was supposed to deliver him there. With a stolen police cruiser (the red one), the destructive being races towards a little and already doomed planet: Earth. Stranded on Hawaii, experiment #626 can't actually do much harm: water all around, no big cities and two well-equipped representatives of the Galactic Federation already following close behind to catch him again. But Dr. Jookiba and the Earth expert Pleakley never could have guessed that earth girl Lilo adopts the experiment as dog, gives him ...Written by

Read the charges.
Doctor Jumba Jookiba, you stand before this council accused of illegal genetic experimentation!
How do you plead?
Not guilty! My experiments are only theoretical, and completely within legal boundaries.
We believe you actually... created something.
Created something? Hah! But that would be irresponsible and unethical. I would never, ever...
[Stitch is revealed]
...make... more than one.

One of the photos of Nani, Lilo, Stitch, et al. displayed at the end is a parody of (or tribute to) Norman Rockwell's painting "Freedom from Want," one of a set of four paintings inspired by President Franklin D. Roosevelt's January 6, 1941 address to Congress enumerating "Four Freedoms." See more »
The U.K. version of the film features Gareth Gates on the soundtrack performing a cover of Elvis Presley's "Suspicious Minds." This does not appear anywhere else in the world. See more »
One thing I've learnt while watching this movie-NEVER judge a film by its trailer!
I don't know why the animators decided to use the ballroom scene from Beauty and the Beast to advertise the film. It did put me off seeing it, but when I eventually decided to do so, I am glad I did. I thought Lilo and Stitch a warm and entertaining film, with beautiful animation with the Hawiian coast. The characters were engaging and funny, especially Jumbaa(wonderful voice work from David Ogden Stiers, in fact all the voice work was terrific, the other standout being Tia Carrere) and Pleakley. Their scenes were hilarious, like Pleakley getting bitten by mosquitoes. This is all helped by a superb script, that mixes hilarious and poignant brilliantly. The music is lovely and quite nostalgic. I thought I would never say that, but it honestly does add to the sense of fun. Both Lilo and Stitch are engaging, and there are plenty of bonding scenes with them together, that makes the film often moving(I was genuinely touched by Lilo telling Stitch about her parents and the significance of the Ugly Duckling story). I have two criticisms with the movie, and they are that at times it is a bit slow, and the climax is a tad rushed. But both flaws are redeemed by the film's good nature, emotional heart and spirit. I will award Lilo and Stitch an 8/10, for entertainment and warmth. Bethany Cox
