It seems that while the upcoming live-action remake of Lilo and Stitch will see the return of a voice actor from the original animated film. In a new report by a Hollywood reporter, it seems Chris Sanders is in final talks to return as the voice of the loveable alien Stitch, who ends up crashlanding on Hawaii under the care of young Lilo.
It also seems like the voice actress Tia Carrere, who played Nani in the animated film, will also return to play the character of Mrs. Kekoa. There’s also the reveal of Amy Hill taking on a role of an original character Tūtū, but details are still scarce as of now on how these new characters play into this new adaptation. They are joining Dean Fleischer-Camp’s film which already has cast Sydney Elizabeth Agudong, Maia Kealoha, Zach Galifianakis, Billy Magnussen, and Kahiau Machado.
Interestingly enough, these new characters were something we shared back in November of 2022. The detail, however, we did get wrong was the exclusion of Cobra Bubbles in the film as his original role was seemingly given to these newly created characters. Courtney B. Vance has recently been cast as Cobra Bubbles in the live-action adaptation, and they may simply have focused on his role as an agent to avoid just repeating the same material from the original.
