A Stitch In Time...
On this date eight years ago, production began on Disney's last great animated movie: "Lilo & Stitch"... the Chris Sanders' film would not be released until 2002, but it was the closing of an era. Although there would be one more hand-drawn animated film in production before Eisner decided to pull the plug on 2D animation at Disney, the writing was on the wall.
The marketing campaign for the movie was clever in how it poked fun at other Disney classics like "Aladdin" with Stitch barging into a preview of one of those films and totally disrupting it. Another interesting thing about "Stitch" is that it was the first Disney animated feature to deviate from the classic music and use tunes from the King, Elvis Presley.
Thank ya, thank ya very much...
