22. Lilo & Stitch

Go on a Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride as we explore the history of the 2002 Disney animated film "Lilo and Stitch." Melanie shares stories and insights about the making of this unique movie, which started out as a children's book pitch and became one of Walt Disney Animation's biggest surprise hits. Jessica talks about the film's three (!) premieres, gives a dramatic reading of Roger Ebert's review, and reveals the places you can find Stitch in Disney's theme parks worldwide.
