#CotD: Disney’s second most commercially successful animated film of it’s time, “Lilo & Stitch” was unique in it’s throw-back watercolor backgrounds.
Lilo & Stitch (2002) – Disney Theatrical Film
Lilo is a five-year-old Hawaiian girl. She loves taking care of wild animals. Meanwhile, in space, alien authorities have captured the most dangerous of all criminals, Stitch. They are intent on sending him to a prison planet. Stitch does not agree with their plans, and steals a rocket and makes his escape.
The rocket crash-lands on earth, and Stitch- who looks a bit like a six-legged dog- escapes and ends up in an animal shelter. Of course, Lilo sees him and, since he’s obviously the most unusual and needy of all the dogs, she takes him home.
