Stitch gets some of the most adorable merchandise, and you can usually see him in Magic Kingdom waving to adoring fans. Now, he’s even getting a NEW movie! Disney’s new live-action remake of Lilo & Stitch is in the works, and Disney has recently cast two new actors for this upcoming film.

The progress on the live-action Lilo & Stitch is underway — Disney shared earlier this month that Maia Kealoha has been cast to play Lilo. In February, we learned that Zach Galifianakis would be joining the cast as well. But now, we know two more actors involved in this film.


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has cast Lilo’s older sister and legal guardian: Nani.
