A little over 20 years ago, Disney released one of its greatest hits: “Lilo and Stitch”. This story was so well received that other animations followed the adventures of the protagonists. If you consider yourself a follower of these movies – and the adorable Stitch – then you most likely already know about the live action that is coming soon. We’re still missing a lot of production details, but at the moment we know that a girl named Maia Kealoha will play Lilo.
Who is Maia Kealoha, the protagonist of the live action of “Lilo and Stitch”
Recently, the Knight Edge Media site revealed that Maia Kealoha was chosen to be Lilo. Confirmation of the news came from The Hollywood Reporter.
Maia Kealoha is a little girl who so far has not participated in other similar productions, so the live action of “Lilo and Stitch” will be her debut on the screen.
Like Lilo, Maia Kealoha is originally from Hawaii. We know that she loves to dance and act. In fact, according to rumors, she has already had the opportunity to present her talent in local plays. She was also in several Little Miss Kona Coffee pageants.
Maia Kealoha was chosen in a casting whose purpose was to find a girl, between 6 and 8 years old, of Hawaiian origin. Quickly, her charisma and her resemblance to her Lilo made this little girl the one selected for the long-awaited Disney movie.
We still have a lot to know about Maia Kealoha, as we are at the beginning of a new star. For the same reason, we will have to keep track of this girl who has started her career in a big way.
What do we know about the live action of “Lilo and Stitch”
In addition to the announcement about the role that Maia Kealoha will have in the film, we have news that Zach Galifianakis will be one of the cast members. You may be able to locate it by his work on the “What Happened Yesterday?” tapes.
The direction will be in charge of Jon M. Chu, a filmmaker who already has several films for young people and adolescents to his credit, including “Justin Bieber’s Believe” and “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never”.
Much is still unknown about the live action of “Lilo and Stitch”, although there is already talk that the visual effects – essential to bring the aliens to life – will be the best. Likewise, there are rumors that the film could come directly to Disney +. They will still have to spend several months before confirming these latest data.
