Walt Disney Pictures

Chris Sanders who voiced the Stitch in the 2002 original animated movie is expected to return for the upcoming live-action hybrid to be produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich.

AceShowbiz - The team behind Disney's 2019 "Aladdin" remake is reportedly working on a new version of "Lilo & Stitch".

According to website, The Disinsider, Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who worked on last year's 2019 box office hit, and awards season favourite, "The Two Popes", will be producers on the flick, with Mike Van Waes working on the script. A director has yet to be confirmed.

Stitch will apparently be voiced by the animated movie's original actor, Chris Sanders, while as yet there's no word of an actress for Lilo.

The movie reportedly has a $60million budget and will be a part of Disney+ original films. Although slightly less than the 2002 original's $80 million budget, the much-loved animated movie went on to gross a huge $273 million at the worldwide box office.

The new film is set to follow in the steps of "The Lion King, "The Jungle Book", "Cinderella", and "Mulan" and will be re-created using live-action and CGI technology.

"Lilo & Stitch" tells the story of Hawaiian girl Lilo who adopts Stitch, an alien-like creature originally known as Experiment 626 who is scientifically engineered to cause chaos and destruction, to be her dog. The two go on to develop a personal bond, as Lilo helps Stitch to unlock his heart and defy his destructive tendencies.
