Life Lessons from Movies

Lilo & Stitch

In Fantasy, Movies on December 27, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Lilo & Stitch (2002) is an animated fantasy co-written and co-directed by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois about Lilo (Daveigh Chase) and Nani (Tia Carrere), a lonely pair of sisters who adopt an unusual dog, Stitch (Chris Sanders), that turns out to be a fugitive from another world.

Life Lesson:

“Family is what you make it.”

Marge Kennedy & Janet Spencer King

Movie Scene:

Stitch: “This is my family. I found it all on my own. It’s little and broken, but still good. Yeah, still good.”

  1. From:

    “AV: What did you want to convey through this film, and through that emotion?

    DDB: Chris and I wanted to convey a new approach to family, more in tune with present day life. It’s not about having the perfect family. What’s important is to have your own family.

    CS: One of our first ideas was to propose a big change in the classical format of fairytales, with a villain that gets destroyed by the hero in the end. Stitch is a villain that becomes a comic hero. It was important for me to say that, if you’re not a hero, you’re not necessarily bad, and vice versa. You can make mistakes, like Stitch, but you have to get over that. That’s a very unusual message, especially for an animated movie.”
