The inspirations for Amelia include a mix of Looney Toons, Star Wars, Close Encounters, and the wonderful Lilo and Stitch. Josh had never seen it until today.
It’s a great movie. Very funny and creative, the animated Disney flick for the weird kids. Tell me another Disney main character besides Lilo that punches girls, does voodoo, fights all the time, and rocks Elvis.
One of the things I love about the movie is that they really nailed Lilo’s age in her design and movements. I want this to come across with Amelia as well. In most of the story Amelia is four, not 2, not 7. Keeping that age correct in her body and “acting” is key.
Mike: “Josh, what’s your review of Lilo & Stitich?”
Josh: “Me? I liked it. I really liked it.”
