Python fans will love the Evil Badguy (not going to give anything away, but I was in tears), Cobra is still as menacing as ever, Stitch still lost, and Plinkley plays a much bigger part (and has a tendancy to steal Nani's clothes and get phonecalls from Womens Clothing stores confirming orders which he venomently denies have anything to do with him). All the characters and voices are in there at peak performance. And just how Does Jumba answer that phone?
Well well worth a place in any collection, and though only 1 hour long looks like to be the start of an interesting series.
The only thing that really lets it down is the animation. Boring backgrounds, with blocky main characters who sometimes have thick black lines around them, it is not as beautiful looking as it should have been.
But all the original characters are present and correct in all their good-natured humour. Stitch is his usual manic, bad self, who you just can't help but love. And the cross-dressing Pleakley seems quite out of place in a Disney film, but all the better for it!!
The storyline is fairly dull. Stitch has to capture another experiment, but it sets up the TV series well. The ending is also quite action packed and exciting.
However, the morals that it tries and force down our throats are the same morals that were seen in the original film, and so seem a litte redundant here. Even so, the focus on family and friendship is always welcome, and only the cold hearted will not feel the tug on their heart strings.
It would have been nice to have a making of documentary to know a little more about the background of the film, but this disc's extras only include some games that will keep kids happy, and a music video.
Still, for a straight to DVD film, it's not too shabby, enjoyable at times, and its downright cute.
