Disney Is Making a 'Lilo & Stitch' Live-Action Remake & The Director Was Just Named!

The beloved Disney animated movie Lilo & Stitch is being made into a live-action film and the studio just selected the director!

Jon M. Chu is in talks to direct the upcoming movie, according to THR. The studio is looking for a writer to work with him to develop the movie.

Lilo & Stitch is about “the bond formed between a lonely human girl named Lilo and a dog-like alien named Stitch, who is engineered to be a force of destruction. Pursuing aliens, social workers and the idea of the bond of a family all figure into the proceedings.”

While the live-action remake was originally being developed as a movie for Disney+, it’s unclear if the movie will be released in theaters first or just go to the streaming service.

Chu is known for his work on the Step Up series, Crazy Rich Asians, Now You See Me 2, and the upcoming In the Heights.
