What I’m Watching: Lilo And Stitch

Lilo & Stitch (Two-Disc Big Wave Edition)You knew I was watching this. I quoted it in Love Me Do. I taught kindergarten.

Okay, to be fair, I ignored this movie for a long time, but eventually my love of Disney movies won out and the dark themes in this one are right up my alley. I remember the first time I watched it sitting there with my mouth open thinking, they seriously made a movie where the main conflict is that the child is going to be removed by Children’s Protective Services? Really? What kind of kids’ cartoon is this? It really is way beyond Bambi’s mom getting shot. That was a deer. This is a little girl. And Stitch’s PTSD? That was a whole ‘nother layer. Not all Disney movies are for kids. This one and Hunchback for sure. And they are both beautiful. If you haven’t seen it, do. It you have, watch it again from an adult perspective. You won’t be sorry.
