‘Lilo & Stitch’ director frustrated by ‘Frozen’ praise: "We did it first!"

When “Frozen” broke through the pop culture zeitgeist upon release in 2013, it was widely celebrated for how it rejected the romantic standards of the Disney animated fairy tale. The heart of “Frozen” was the relationship between sisters Anna and Elsa, not either characters’ connection to a man. There was no prince saving the day or “true love’s first kiss” shared between a man and a woman. Moviegoers hailed “Frozen” for prioritizing sisterhood, but such praise made “Lilo & Stitch” co-director Chris Sanders a bit aggravated.

 

“To be clear, I think ‘Frozen’s’ great,” Sanders recently told The New York Times while celebrating “Lilo & Stitch’s” 20th anniversary. “But it was a little bit frustrating for me because people were like, ‘Finally, a nonromantic relationship with these two girls,’ and I thought, ‘We did that! That has absolutely been done before.’”

 

[...]

 

For Sanders, the focus on sisterhood as seen in Lilo and Nani’s relationship predates “Frozen” by over a decade. The co-director wishes the film would get its due for centralizing a non-romance at its center.

Do you share the same feelings as the Lilo & Stitch director on the matter? Do the queens of Hawaii deserve their flowers? Is Frozen more popular just because of white mediocrity? Comment below.

But the main characters in Lilo & Stich are well, Lilo & Sitch, Lilo's sister appears but nothing would've happened if she wasn't there so she's basically just there.

I find this kinda stupid. Frozen is very on the dot about the romance and how Anna wants to be married to a cute prince and stuff until she learns she doesn't really need that. While Lilo & Stitch had Nani and Lilo more in a parental type relationship that never really had that "dream" Disney romance that Anna was crazy about. Lilo & Stitch was more a plight about how Nani had to support her family while being in the circumstances she was in. I just imagine more kids can relate to the Anna and Elsa relationship moreso than Lilo and Nani. As true as Nani and Lilo's situation can be for some people.

 

Pretty much can be summed up to Frozen being a Disney princess movie that broke standard stereotypes, while Lilo & Stitch never approached that subject. It was always meant to be a coming-of-age movie describing growth between two sisters.

Lilo and Stitch is a timeless classic. The director shouldn't be worried about that 10's fad.

People weren't flocking to Frozen because of the story it was because of the music.  Either way, Lilo & Stitch is better but this is an annoying take

Yes. Frozen it's just a basic movie recycling the same stuff Disney has been doing for decades, it put nothing new on the table :swan:
