While Kealoha will play Lilo, Agudong will play Stitch in a 2022 interview with Syfy.
Kealoha is set to play Lilo in what will be her first film role. Meanwhile, Agudong is also a relatively fresh face. The Nani actor previously appeared in episodes of “On My Block” and “NCIS.” Additional cast members include Zach Galifianakis in an undisclosed role (although The Wrap reported he will be voicing the alien Pleakley), “No Time to Die” actor Billy Magnussen (also in a mystery role), newcomer Kahiau Machado will play Nani’s love interest David Kawena, and Emmy-winner Courtney B. Vance will star as Cobra Bubbles, per Deadline.
As for the role of Stitch, the character was originally voiced by the animated movie’s director, Chris Sanders. While there have been rumors he will return to voice the adorable alien again, the news has not been confirmed. In a 2022 interview with Syfy, Sanders did reveal he would come back if Disney calls him.
“It’s such a kick to do it,” he said of voicing Stitch. “I’m very lucky in that I am able to maintain a connection to him, which is very important. He’s a creature that I invented … [To say] he’s very personal to me is an understatement. He is me and I am him. His personality is my personality. I built him to be that way. His chaotic neutral personality is mine. He’s very near and dear to me and he always will be. I would do his voice in a minute, absolutely.”
