Disney’s run of live-action reboots has looked promising in the past years with The Lion King, The Jungle Book and Mulan doing fairly well for themselves, and the entertainment giant looks to keep the momentum going by locking in the director for the Lilo and Stitch live-action movie.

John M. Chu previously directed Step Up 2: The Streets and Crazy Rich Asians and is currently in talks with Disney to handle the forthcoming movie dubbed ‘Stitch’ by the company.

Similar to Mulan’s release, ’Stitch’ will be out on Disney+ due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, currently without a release date due to it still being in development.
