Disney puts hopes back on a live-action
In recent years, Disney has been producing a series of live-actions of its animated classics. From “Cinderella” to “Beauty and the Beast,” these films have been a mix of critical and successful. However, one of the biggest hits was “The Lion King“, which became a box office phenomenon.
As for Disney’s upcoming live-action, “Lilo and Stitch” has the potential to be a huge hit. The story of a Hawaiian girl and her alien friend has been beloved since its release on 2002. Also, Hawaiian culture and music play a big role in the plot, which can be a great opportunity for diversity and inclusion on screen.
However, the question is whether the live-action will be able to capture the essence of the original and whether the animated characters of Stitch and the aliens they will be so adorable in their live version. In addition, the choice of cast and direction will be crucial to the success of the project.
In general, Disney has been successful in producing live-actions in the past, but there have also been some flops. With “Lilo and Stitch,” there is a lot of potential for a smash hit, as long as the approach is authentic and respectful of Hawaiian culture, and the magic and excitement of the animated version is achieved. Without a doubt, the presence of the music of Elvis Presley will be important.
