Casting of Sydney Agudong as Nani in ‘Lilo & Stitch’ Live-Action Film Has Caused Major Backlash

The new lead in the planned live-action rendition of Lilo & Stitch has been cast.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sydney Agudong will play Nani Pelekai, Lilo Pelekai’s elder sister and legal guardian. Tia Carrere provided the voice of Nani in the 2002 animated picture.

Agudong is an actress who just starred in the forthcoming indie film At Your Feet. NCIS, West Michigan, On My Block, and Infamously In Love are among her other credits.

But despite this, this casting has been met with a lot of backlash online.

Here’s just some of the responses to this casting news:

THR reports that Disney has yet to cast the voice of Stich in the film. Stitch was formerly known as Experiment 626 in the original film, and he escaped to Earth to avoid being killed by The Galactic Federation. Stitch disguised himself as a dog to blend in with the locals, and he was quickly adopted by a disturbed young girl named Lilo.
