Lilo & Stitch: Maia Kealoha will play Lilo in the live-action film

Here are the details on the hiring of the very young Maia Kealoha, who will star in the live-action Lilo & Stitch.

It was recently announced that Maya Kealoha will play the character of Lilo in the live-action remake of Lilo & Stitch. The new entry in the cast will join Zach Galifianakis, whose role has not been revealed.

The particular aspect of casting Maia Kealoha for Lilo & Stitch is the fact that she is a young debutant actress, practically what happened with the part of Ms. Marvel that went to Iman Vellani in the production of the TV series. One of the aspects that led to her engagement is her experience with the traditional dance of the islands of Tahiti, a detail that is part of the character of Lilo.

The Lilo & Stitch remake is written by Chris Kekaniokalani Bright, who also makes his debut after working on the short film Tsuru. Dean Fleischer Camp, who previously filmed Marcel the Shell, will direct the live-action. He takes over from Jon M. Chu, who was originally set to work on the project, and was announced in 2020. Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich will serve as producers, while Ryan Halprin will serve as executive producer.
