The actor who plays the main character Lilo in the live-action remake of the popular animation ” Lilo & Stitch,” which Walt Disney is preparing to produce for Disney Plus, has been decided. US entertainment information site Knight Edge Media reports exclusively.

Set in Hawaii, ” Lilo & Stitch ” is a sci-fi action comedy that revolves around the friendship between Lilo, a lonely girl with her older sister, and Stitch, an alien puppy. It was released in theaters in 2002, and since then, the TV series “Lilo & Stitch The Series” and the sequel movie “Lilo & Stitch 2” have been produced.

Chris K.T. Bright wrote the screenplay for the live-action adaptation. He was also produced by Disney’s live-action ” Aladdin ” producer duo, Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, and Dean Fry of “Marcel Shoes,” which was nominated for the Feature Animation Award at the 95th Academy Awards. Directed by Shah Camp takes the megaphone.

Hawaii-born Maia Kialoha won the large-scale public audition held in November last year and won the role of Lilo. According to the site, she is an unknown newcomer with no acting experience, having only participated in the “Little Miss Kona Coffee” kids’ pageant of Hawaii’s famous Kona coffee a few times.

Famous comedy actor Zach Galifianakis (“The Hangover!” series), who was recently reported to appear, will play the role of Wendy Pleakley, an alien who comes to Earth to catch the escaped Stitch and then becomes an ally for some reason.

It is said that he will play. Also, Auri Craballho, who voiced the main character Moana in the Disney animation ” Moana and the Legendary Sea, “was offered the role of Lilo’s older sister Nani but declined to prioritize the shooting of the musical movie version “Of Mean Girls.” Therefore, it is said that the role of Nani has not been decided yet.
