Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M Chu is in negotiations to direct Disney Studios' Lilo & Stitch live-action movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has not yet roped in any screenwriter or cast members for the film.

Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich of Rideback, the company that produced Disney's Aladdin remake, are backing the new film.

The first Lilo & Stitch movie, released in 2002, was written and directed by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois. The story followed a six-year-old Hawaiian girl Lilo and her teenage sister Nani, who adopt a blue extraterrestrial creature nicknamed Stitch.

The film was followed by multiple spin-offs, including the direct-to-video sequels Stitch: The Movie, Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch, and Leroy and Stitch. There was also a TV adaptation titled Lilo & Stitch: The Series that ran on Disney Channel from 2003 to 2006.
