Lilo & Stitch

This week’s movie introduces us to the extraterrestrial… in the form of an adorable little blue alien named Stitch. 

That’s right, it’s time for another Disney movie – Lilo & Stitch! This film has it all: aliens, surfing, Elvis music, and a peanut-butter-sandwich-eating fish. It also has alien bounty hunters. And ice cream. And hula dancing. All this to say that this film has everything for which one could ask. 

But the most important part of Lilo & Stitch is what it has to say about family. It says that family can be born into, yes, but it can also be found. This film has two sisters who love each other beyond and despite their words. It also has an otherworldly being who helps them see that families don’t have to be “perfect” to be beautiful.

Hold your family close while you watch this charming movie. Lilo and Stitch is sure to generate both laughs and tears. And remember that your family is beautiful.
