Lilo and Stitch Movie Night

Its Friday and so for this week’s Movie Night we are doing Lilo and Stitch. Perfect for a summer night but also great for learning more about Hawaii, which is where majority of the film takes place.

Before we even get into the film, lets talk about Hawaiian facts:

  • Hawaii was the 50th state to join the United States of America in 1959.
  • It is nicknamed the Aloha State
  • The Capital is Honolulu

We are going to add a video of the scenery. Hawaii has a lot of history that is mixed with Asian and Polynesian cultures. It is a beautiful state but also has a lot of problems. You and your ids can research more on that if you wish.

Now on to the movie. Lilo and Stitch actually is its own little franchise that includes Lilo and Stitch (2002), Stitch! The Movie (2003), Lilo and Stitch 2: Stitch has a Glitch (2005), Leroy and Stitch (2006). There were also three series based off the film which were Lilo and Stitch the Series (2003-2005), Stitch the Series (2008-2015) and Stitch & AI (2017).

If you are interested on how appropriate these films and shows are or the theory that is associated with it, please join our sister site and our Facebook group The Disney Pixar Connection, where we cover film history, Disney recipes, reviews, theories, Easter eggs and so much more. I hope to see you in there. Enjoy planning your movie night with the roundup we used for our own.
