A young and parentless girl adopts a 'dog' from the local pound, completely unaware that it's supposedly a dangerous scientific experiment that's taken refuge on Earth and is now hiding from its creator and those who see it as a menace.

The film received positive reviews from critics, who praised its story, humor, charm, and originality.


Lucia (Age 10): ★★★★★

"In my review of the film, Lilo and Stitch, I would rate it 5 stars. This is because the storyline is heartwarming and makes the viewer feel positive. Lilo is an 8 year old girl who visits an adoption centre hoping to adopt a dog. Lilo doesn’t end up adopting a dog however, she ends up with an extraordinary alien, who she names Stitch. Lilo picked Stitch because he ran to her to give her a hug when he first saw her. Stitch has a beautiful heart but causes mayhem and chaos on earth. An example of this is when he built a brilliant mini city with Lilo’s toys in her bedroom and then destroyed it straight away. Lilo and Stitch is a great family film and is very entertaining for every age, from adults to very young children. My favourite character is Stitch because he is very funny and cute. For instance, when Lilo bought him an ice-cream he rubbed it on his head, not knowing what to do with the ice-cream. It is a great film!"
