The result of an unsuccessful, illegal experiment in genetic mutation, Experiment #626 has been locked up by its inventors. The creature escapes to Earth where Lilo, a young Hawaiian girl, mistakes it for a strange dog, adopts it, and renames it Stitch. As Stitch becomes part of Lilo's unusual family life, Lilo's innocence and the aloha, family-friendly spirit of the Islands confuse and ultimately civilize the creature.

Family-themed activity pages will be available for children during the film. This program is especially appropriate for children ages 9 and younger with their families.
