Lilo & Stitch

Warm, funny, and imaginative, Lilo & Stitch is the best animated feature the Walt Disney Studios have produced in years. On the planet Turo, mad scientist Jumba Jookiba (voice by David Ogden Stiers) has created a miniature monster programmed for destruction. When the monster escapes to Earth, it's adopted as a pet and named "Stitch" by Lilo (Daveigh Chase), a lonely little Hawaiian girl. Lilo and her older sister Nani (Tia Carrere) have been struggling to stay together since their parents died. Stitch and Lilo share some hilarious adventures, evading welfare officer Cobra Bubbles (Ving Rhames) and galactic police agents. They learn the timely lesson that a family can be something you're born into--or something you assemble. A warmth and sincerity that recall The Iron Giant and the films of Hiyao Miyazaki make Lilo a delightful fantasy adults and children can truly enjoy together. --Charles Solomon

[Final cut opening]

Grand Councilwoman:
Read the charges.

Gantu:
Dr. Jumba Jookiba, lead scientist of Galaxy Defense Industries, you stand before this council, accused. Of illegal genetic experimentation! [a door opens revealing a spaceship]

Grand Councilwoman:
How do you plead?

Jumba:
Not guilty. My experiments are only theoretical completely within legal boundaries. [as he says this, the spaceship opens]

Grand Councilwoman:
We believe you actually created something.

Jumba:
Created something? Ha! But that would be irresponsible! And unethical! I would never, ever... [Stitch is revealed] make more than one.

Gantu:
What is that monstrosity?

Jumba:
Monstrosity?! What you see before you is the first of a new species. I call him Experiment 6-2-6. He is bullet-proof, fire-proof, and can think faster than supercomputer. He can see in the dark, and move objects three thousand times his size! His only instinct: TO DESTROY EVERYTHING HE TOUCHES! [laughing maniacally]

Grand Councilwoman:
So it is a monster.

Jumba:
[nonchalantly] Hey, just a little one.

Gantu:
It's an affront to nature! It must be destroyed!

Grand Councilwoman:
Calm yourself, Captain Gantu. Perhaps it can be reasoned with. [to Stitch] Experiment 6-2-6, give us some sign you understand any of this. Show us that there is something inside you that is good.

Stitch:
[clears throat] Meega nala kweesta! ["I wanna destroy!"]

Audience:
[gasps]

Grand Councilwoman:
So naughty!

Stitch:
[laughs hysterically]

Jumba:
I didn't teach him that!

Gantu:
Place that idiot scientist under arrest!

Jumba:
I prefer to be called that EVIL GENIUS!

Grand Councilwoman:
And as for that abomination, it is the pure product of a deranged mind. It has no place with us. Captain Gantu, take him away.

Gantu:
With pleasure.

Cobra Bubbles:
[reaching down to shake hands with Lilo] Nice to meet you.

Lilo:
[tilting her head as if to read something] Your knuckles say "Cobra." [Cobra Bubbles withdraws his hand, his knuckles crack] "Cobra Bubbles." You don’t look like a social worker.

Cobra Bubbles:
I’m a special classification.

Lilo:
Did you every to kill anyone else who song to be owns?

Cobra Bubbles:
[frowning] We’re getting off the subject. Today let's talk about you. Are you...happy?

Lilo:
[opens her mouth wide to show a fake smile, sounding slightly bored, speaking in response to Nani’s pantomiming behind Cobra] I’m adjusted. I eat four food groups and look both ways when crossing the street. And take long naps... [Nani clenches a fist in a "Doing well" sign] and get disciplined?

[Nani cringes]

Cobra Bubbles:
Disciplined?

[Lilo continues, with Nani silently getting more and more frantic.]

Lilo:
Yeah, she disciplines me real good. Sometimes five times a day. [Nani places her head in her hands in despair] With bricks. [Nani looks up in horror]

Cobra Bubbles:
Bricks?

Lilo:
Uh-huh. In a pillowcase.

Nani:
[clamps her hand over Lilo's mouth] Okay! That's enough sugar for you! [pushes Lilo in the direction out of the room and speaks through her clenched teeth] Why dontcha run along, ya little cutie? [nervously laughs, looking at Cobra Bubbles] The other social workers just thought she was a scream... Thirsty? [walks to the fridge awkwardly]

Cobra Bubbles:
[open refrigerator] Let me illuminate to you the precarious situation in which you have found yourself. [closed refrigerator] I am the one they call when things go wrong. And things have indeed gone wrong.

Lilo:
Hm. [makes her enemies of spoons and furiously puts them in the jar] My friends need to be punished and to has should to go.

Nani:
[turns red in anger]

Cobra Bubbles:
Call me next time you left here alone.

Lilo:
Yep.

Cobra Bubbles:
In case you're wondering, this did not go well. (effortlessly pulls open the previously nailed-up door) You have 3 days to change my mind. [closes the door as Nani glares at Lilo]

[Lilo comes back to the lobby with Stitch]

Shelter Worker:
Oh, yes, all our dogs are adoptable... [jumps, startled] EXCEPT THAT ONE!!! [runs and takes Stitch away from Lilo as Nani pulls Lilo away from Stitch]

Nani:
What is that thing?

Shelter Worker:
A dog...I think, but it was dead this morning.

Nani:
It was dead this morning?!

Shelter Worker:
Well, we thought it was dead; it was hit by a truck!

Lilo:
I like him! Come here, boy.

[Stitch forcefully, against the shelter worker's grip, walks himself forward to get to Lilo as she so called him to her, climbing up onto Nani and Lilo's laps]

Nani:
[screams and pushes Stitch away from her and Lilo; she composes herself and asks] Wouldn't you like a different dog?

Shelter Worker:
[a bit breathless] We have better dogs, dear.

Lilo:
Not better than him! He can talk. Say hello.

Stitch:
He... Hel...

Shelter Worker:
Dogs can't talk, dear.

Stitch:
[narrows his eyes and bares his teeth in frustration]

Lilo:
He did.

Nani:
Does it have to be this dog?

Stitch:
[pants a few times before lolling his tongue out, sticking it up his nose and pulling out a big green bogie, eating it, smacking his lips]

Lilo:
Yes. He's good. I can tell.

Shelter Worker:
[filling out paperwork at the front desk] You'll have to think of a name for him.

Lilo:
His name is... Stitch.

Shelter Worker:
That's not a real name. [Nani shakes her head quickly and waves her hand as if saying 'No! Don't say that!'] ...in...Iceland. But here it's a good name. Stitch, it is. And there's a $2.00 license fee.

Lilo:
I want to buy him! [whispers] Can I borrow $2?

Nani:
[with a semi-irritated look, Nani takes the money from the shelter worker and hands it to Lilo. Lilo then taps the money on her shoulder and hands it back to her, handing it to the shelter worker]

Shelter Worker:
[stamps the adoption papers and hands the paper to Lilo with a friendly smile] He's all yours.
