In this episode Katie and I travel to quadrant 17, sector 005, area 51 to a planet called e-arth to do a deep dive into the Walt Disney Animation feature film Lilo and Stitch. We discuss the history of the film from initial idea to the exact location at Walt Disney World where it was given the green light over, of all things, sushi. We dig into the unique art style that was used and who the background painters called in for help, plus we analyze our favorite characters and the role the theme of ohana played in driving the story.
