Disney has cast Sydney Elizabeth Agudong as Lilo’s older sister and legal guardian, Nani, for the upcoming live-action remake of “Lilo and Stitch.”
Agudong, 22, was born in Kaua’i, Hawaii, and has previously acted in the CBS series “NCIS” and the films “Infamously in Love” and “West Michigan,” according to the The Hollywood Reporter.
The upcoming remake will see newcomer Maia Kealoha as Lilo, Zach Galifianakis as the alien Pleakley and Billy Magnussen in a currently undisclosed role. Stitch will be made using CGI.
Dean Fleischer-Camp, director of the Oscar-nominated animated film “Marcel the Shell with Shoes On,” will helm the remake using a script by Chris Kekaniokalani Bright. Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich will serve as producers, while Ryan Halprin will executive produce.
Lilo and Stitch” centers around a young girl named Lilo Pelekai who lives with Nani, her older sister and legal guardian.
Lilo’s life takes an unexpected turn when a genetically engineered blue alien named Stitch crash-lands on Earth. Lilo, who takes Stitch under her wing as her pet, has no idea that the alien was originally intended to wreak havoc. The two go on several adventures and eventually discover the true meaning of family, all while avoiding nosy social workers and dangerous aliens chasing after them.
The “Lilo and Stich” remake is slated to premiere on Disney+. An official date has yet to be announced.
