Disney would like to do a live action remake of Lilo & Stitch, one of his less popular animated films that has been gaining followers as time has passed.
The film, which is already in developmentwill be directed by Dean Fleischer Camp, who this year has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Film for Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, and starring actor Zach Galifianakis, the first to join the cast, as confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, who has not revealed which character he will play.

However, The Wrap website has confirmed that Galifianakis is going to play Pleakley, one of two aliens who come down to Earth with a mission to find the escaped Experiment 626. At the moment there are no actresses to play Lilo and her older sister, but the studio has already begun an intense search.
This tape would mean the return of Galifianakis to big productions after having participated in 2018 in A Wrinkle in Time, also from Disney. Although he hasn’t stopped working in small productions, it’s clear that the most unforgettable role of his career is that of the disastrous Alan in the Hangover trilogy.
