The Lilo And Stitch ohana is expanding and it will most definitely be a Hawaiian roller coaster ride. This is especially since the director of Crazy Rich Asians, Jon M. Chu is in the talks to bring the beloved movie to life.
News of a Lilo And Stitch live-action remake first came to light in 2018 but went into silence until two years later this February when the remake was announced to be in the works for Disney+. However, Lilo And Stitch isn’t a roller coaster ride for nothing. With Chu helming the film, the remake may receive a theatrical release instead.
Chu has always been vocal about preserving the movie theatre experience especially when it comes to movies made about minority audiences. His romantic-comedy Crazy Rich Asians made US$238.5 million in the box-office and became the highest-grossing romantic comedy of the last 10 years, effectively changing Asian representation in Hollywood. It would be a shame if Lilo And Stitch, a story centred around Native Hawaiians, does not make it to the big screens.
Lilo And Stitch tells the story of a lonely human girl named Lilo and a dog-like alien named Stitch. The film largely explores the theme of family and is without a doubt, a heartwarming film despite not being a huge success when it first came out.
Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, the duo behind the Aladdin live-action remake. will be producing Lilo And Stitch. Ryan Halprin is executive producing and a search for a scribe is still underway.
Lilo And Stitch is just one of Disney’s many animated films that is getting a live-action remake treatment. The House of Mouse saw box-office successes in Beauty and The Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King. However, the latest Mulan was a flop, making only US$69.9 million despite the US$200 million budget.

There is no end in sight for the back-and-forth drama between Taylor Swift and her former label Big Machine Records’ executives Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun. Since June 2019, the Grammy winner has been at war with the big-wig business partners over the rights to the music she recorded before switching to Republic Records the previous November. Braun acquired Big Machine and Swift’s back catalog of master recordings as part of an estimated $300 million deal. Shortly after the acquisition news broke, the “Bad Blood” singer took to Tumblr to alert fans that she “had to make the excruciating choice to leave behind my past.” In her blog post, she claimed she “learned about Scooter Braun’s purchase of my masters as it was announced to the world” and called out the talent manager for years of “incessant, manipulative bullying” at the hands of his clients Justin Bieber and Kanye West. She called the deal her “worst case scenario.” Borchetta and Braun’s wife, Yael Cohen, were among those who publicly rebutted the claims in the Tumblr post, while celebrities including Halsey, Kelly Clarkson, Ed Sheeran and Cher sided with Swift. The drama eventually simmered down, and Swift released her seventh album, Lover, in August 2019. However, less than three months later, she exposed Braun and Borchetta once again after they allegedly tried to block her from performing her old hits at the 2019 American Music Awards, where she is being honored as Artist of the Decade. She also claimed on social media that the executives “declined the use of my older music or performance footage” for a Netflix documentary that she has in the works. Big Machine slammed Swift’s post as “calculated,” saying in a November 2019 statement that it does “not have the right to keep her from performing live anywhere.” The label, however, did not explicitly address claims that it had barred the pop star from performing her old material. “While Big Machine is not directly blocking her performance, they are putting a roadblock in her way as far as performing these particular songs,” music industry lawyer Erin M. Jacobson told Us Weekly. Scroll down for a complete timeline of everything we know so far.
