On the podcast this week, Steven and Sean are learning what it means to be a true family, while also staving off an alien invasion in the film from Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders, 2002’s Lilo & Stitch.
If you even try to suggest that there’s a cuter being with more personality and destructive talents than Stitch somewhere out in the universe, then Steven might try to fight you. Seriously, dude’ll just straight up cut you.
And who could blame him? Sean would back him up. I mean, have you even seen Stitch? Have you even seen this movie? If not, then you really should. It’ll make this episode more enjoyable. Give it a watch now; don’t worry, we’ll wait for you to come back. In the meantime, Sean’s totally agreeing with Steven. Stitch is the sort of out of control science experiment with an attitude that anyone can love.
Lilo definitely fell in love with him the very first moment she saw him. Sure, she thought he was an adorable puppy, but who can hold that against her? She’s a lonely child who needs a best friend! It’s the other people in her life that needed to understand just how good Stitch can be. Nani and Bubbles were the problem here, along with the Grand Councilwoman and Captain Gantu.
They needed to learn that ohana means family, damn it! And family means no one gets left behind!
Hey, we get there, though. That’s the magic of this film. By the end of it, you’ll be rooting for Lilo and Stitch. You’ll want everyone to have a happy life together. You’ll want to see more of the lush and gorgeous artwork that this film is packed with. As we start wrapping up our current month of animated films, we couldn’t have picked a better one to watch and enjoy. This film is a delight, and enjoyable at any age.
