Between Christopher Robin, Dumbo, Aladdin, The Lion King and so many more movies, this (and the next few years) are filled with live-action Disney reboots. Add another favorite film to the list, because a live-action remake of Lilo & Stitch is happening.

If you haven’t noticed, Disney is REALLY into remaking their animated features into new live-action movies. The steady stream of IRL (plus CGI) films seems like a never-ending buffet of big-screen treats for Disney fans.

While there hasn’t been a flood of details about the upcoming flick, reportedly Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich of Rideback are producing the live-action version of the Disney tale. They’re also the duo producing the live-action remake of Aladdin, scheduled to debut in coming May 2019.

Along with the production team, reports are swirling that Mike Van Waes will write the script and Rideback’s Ryan Halprin will co-produce. As of now, Disney has not named who will star in the live-action film or given any story-related information.

Disney released the original animated buddy movie way back in 2002. The film, and its beloved, quirky characters, quickly became fan faves. With a $273 million worldwide box office gross, clearly Lilo & Stitch was a hit.
