The Original “Lilo & Stitch”

Marc Hendry, a Scottish animator, recently uploaded the entirety of a booklet Chris Sanders sent to some Disney execs in 1998 — before development of the movie Lilo & Stitch went into full effect.

It’s a long read, but a must-read for fans of the 2002 Disney film. I personally can’t wait until my girls are old enough to enjoy, and appreciate the movie!

What do you think? Isn’t it interesting how the original concept was so much darker? (i.e., Stitch being a gang leader who uses Lilo as a hostage)

And, because I loved the teaser trailers for Lilo & Stitch so much (where he disrupts famous scenes from other Disney movies), here’s a YouTube video featuring all four:

…I kinda wish they had incorporated the other Disney characters into the movie.

    I love the film but I think I prefer this version!

    • Strangely this is much better then the movie(and/or TV show)it looks like He got influence from Spanish cartoons
      strangely I always thought it was either 80s cinema or 50s rock culture.
