Produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation, Lilo and Stitch is a 2002 American animated science fiction comedy-drama film. Disney recently announced a live-action remake of this 2 decades old hit animated movie.

The production unit has also completed casting for the three main film roles. Maia Kealoha, a young newcomer, will play the role of Lilo and Sydney Agudong will play Nani (Lilo’s older sister).

Along with this, Kahiau Machado has officially joined the team as David (Nani’s lover). However, some are unhappy.

Disney subscribers want Lilo and Stitch live action remake canceled for replacing Cobra Bubbles

Multiple Lilo and Stitch movie fans (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) are not happy with the casting choices in the reboot of the 2002 hit.

Viewers are disappointed as the production team has chosen, Sydney Agudong, a lighter-skinned woman in the upcoming remake of the iconic film.

They are of the view that if the role was played by a dark-skinned character in the original anime feature, then the same should be depicted in the new project.

Some even say that Disney has a history of whitewashing characters, due to which they are dissatisfied. While others believe that there is no need to make a live action remake of the old classic.

Why in the live action remake of Lilo & Stitch didn’t you opt to find a blonde girl with blue eyes as the actress who plays Nani?? 😱 Where has the political correctness gone? Did you use it all for the Little Mermaid? #mah #LiloAndStitch😂

Also, some (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) wanted the role of Cobra Bubbles to be played by Terry Crews.

But unfortunately, that did not happen, and to rub salt in the wounds, the former CIA agent has been replaced by Mrs. Kekoa, a new character played by Jolene Purdy. And as a result, the fans have become furious.

Due to this they (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) are now even requesting the producers to cancel the remake altogether.
