Team leader Wayne asked me to post any new info I find about Stitch and Ai so I am doing that. Here is some info from TV Tropes about “Stitch and Ai”

• The Other Darrin: Once again, none of the original cast from the films or Lilo & Stitch: The Series return to reprise their roles. Stitch himself is clearly voiced by someone other than Chris Sanders (his creator and original voice actor) and Ben Diskin (his voice actor for the Stitch! anime's English dub).
Role Reprisal: Jess Winfield, who voiced Jumba in the Stitch! anime's English dub, has worked on this show. Considering that (based on the initial English trailer) Jumba sounds a lot like he does in the anime, it's likely that Winfield reprised his role here, although this is yet to be definitively confirmed.

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Trivia/StitchAndAi
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/YMMV/StitchAndAi

An unprecedented third TV series for a Disney Animated Canon-based franchise, Stitch & Ainote  (2017) is another spinoff of Lilo & Stitch. This Chinese animated series, produced by Anhui Xinhua Media and Panimation Hwakai Media, has a similar premise to the Stitch! anime before it, as Stitch is again separated from Lilo Pelekai and ends up in a different region of Earth. However, unlike the anime, this show had the assistance of American animators (including Lilo & Stitch: The Series executive producer Tony Craig) and was produced in English first before being dubbed into its local language (Mandarin Chinese).

As shown in the first episode, Stitch has been kidnapped from Lilo by a gang of space criminals who want to replicate Jumba's Experiment 626 research. However, a rival gang attacks their ship wanting Stitch for themselves, allowing him to break free and escape back to Earth in the confusion. Upon reentering Earth's atmosphere, he lands in China's Huangshan mountains where he meets a young local girl named Ai Ling and becomes part of her family. Unfortunately for Stitch, the two space gangs still want to take him, so he's going to need some help to ward them off.

While the show was produced in the English language, an international broadcast has yet to be announced. In the mean time, you can watch the English trailer for the show here.

This Chinese animated series features the following tropes:
• Aliens Speaking English: It's a Lilo & Stitch show. It would be more surprising if it didn't use this trope.
• Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: In this series, Stitch has the ability mutate into a Kaiju-like monster when he destructive programming kicks in.
• Badass in Distress: We first see Stitch held in captivity by space pirates. Unlike most instances of this trope however, he manages to break free on his own.
• The Cameo: Hämsterviel is briefly shown in the third episode as a prisoner on a volcanic planet breaking rocks. Also counts as Demoted to Extra.
• Canon Foreigner: All over again! This show introduces not only a new human cast, but also new villains from space.
• Continuity Nod: Ice-Cream Man comes back in the first episode and still loses his ice cream. Subverted in that he's actually not the real Ice-Cream Man.
• Evil Versus Evil: Two rival gangs of space pirates are fighting over Stitch.
• Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: Since this show is partly inspired by Chinese Mythology, of course Chinese dragons are going to appear.
• Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: The two space gangs fighting over Stitch in the first episode cause him to break free and escape them.
• Non-Standard Character Design:
◦ Subverted with the new human and non-experiment alien characters, as they are designed similarly to those seen in the films and Lilo & Stitch: The Series.
◦ However, most of the new experiments on this show don't look like traditional experiments for the most part, and the ones that do resemble traditional experiments have much more complex designs. Check them out for yourself. (Note: links contain spoilers.)
• One-Winged Angel: This show introduces a new form of Stitch for when his destructive programming is triggered. He grows into a giant beast with glowing red eyes and four tendril-like appendages that allow him to fire plasma from his body.
• Pun-Based Title: Ai is pronounced the same as the English letter and pronoun "I". You can figure out the rest from there.
• Recycled IN SPACE!: Stitch! in China.
• Scenery Porn: This show likes to emphasize just how beautiful the Huangshan mountains are.
• Science Fantasy: Like the Stitch! anime, this show mixes the Lilo & Stitch franchise's brand of science fiction with the local mythology of a region, with Chinese Mythology being implemented this time around.
• Sequel Non-Entity: Even though this show features brand-new experiments, it appears that none of the previously-seen experiments besides Stitch himself will return on this show. Not even Reuben (625) nor Angel (624) have appeared yet.
• Sequel Series: Number three for the Lilo & Stitch franchise. However, this show seems to be disregarding all previous sequel material this time around (or at the very least the Stitch! anime).
• Stealth Sequel: Averted; Lilo is explicitly shown in flashbacks in the first episode, quickly establishing this show as taking place after the original film.
• Suspiciously Similar Substitute/Expy: Ai Ling for both Lilo Pelekai and Yuna Kamihara, although Ai is much closer to the former than the latter was.
Vocal Evolution: Whoever is voicing Stitch here is using a significantly deeper pitch for him than either Chris Sanders or Ben Diskin.

Stitch! has been succeeded in the franchise in 2017 by the Chinese animated series Stitch & Ai, which shares a similar premise with the anime.note  Unlike the anime however, Stitch & Ai had the assistance of American animators during production and was produced in English first before being dubbed into its local language.note Also, Stitch didn't deliberately leave Lilo this time around; he was kidnapped by a space gang.

I also found an episode list for "Stitch and Ai". Google Translated episode list for “Stitch and Ai” (rough translation only! and couldn’t get the title for ep 13 sorry)

Episode 1 “Stitch and Ai”

Episode 2 “Home is the most important place”

Episode 3: “Alien Visitors”

Episode 4 “Magic Bamboo”

Episode 5 “Love Power”

Episode 6 “Concentric Lock”

Episode 7 “Dragon Dance Celebration”

Episode 8 “To Tell the World”

Episode 9 “Phioenix”

Episode 10 “Dream”

Episode 11 “Opera”

Episode 12 “Brothers”

List came from here http://tv.cntv.cn/videoset/VSET100334323605

Show description from google translate Column description : animation "An Ling and Stitch" to China Huangshan as the story of the background to the Chinese image for the creation of elements, about Huangshan girl An Ling and alien creatures Stedy's adventure, through the three-dimensional perspective and full of children Fun aesthetic, showing a peaceful and full of vitality Huizhou people living, showing the traditional Chinese culture and modern life of the close integration.



To Starryblast9 and Elastico’s Foot: You both make good points and have voiced your arguments well. To me my biggest problem with Tony Craig’s line of reasoning is that to him Lilo and Stitch have to be separate in order to grow up. I don’t like the idea of having to separate from one’s family in order to be an adult. Separating from one’s family in adulthood is a very mainland U.S culture idea and seems to conflict directly with the message of Ohana. Please understand I am a big believer in Independence and self sufficiency but one can be living separately from their family yet still be fully involved with family. I also think Lilo & Stitch The Series could have gone well beyond 100 episodes if the writers had taken some real creative risks and did some of the things you suggested. I think the giant Stitch design with the lasers is simply a rehash of the “Stitch!” anime season 3 episode “Promise to Mega Stitch”. I also think some stuff that we as adult fans view as filler may not be viewed as filer when a 6 year old is watching the same show(example: I didn't think the Land Before Time sequels were filler until I was 12 LOL) but I also think young kids can handle more complex stories and if the writers put more effort in by changing the formula just slightly every now and then would it have really helped. It could be that they fear fan backlash over changes to formula of a show will ruin ratings but My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic is constantly making changes and allowing characters to really grow more deeply and for the most part this has been hugely successful so the writers should have tried spicing Lilo & Stitch up a bit.

To Elastico’s Foot: Guessing Sparky can learn to get into dreams because he can control electricity and the brain runs on electricity.

To Simba100: It is not known if the experiments will appear but I will keep you posted. I put your Angel song link on the tumblr blog.

Input on Lilo in "Stitch and Ai" from Tony Craig's official Facebook: Warning it may not make all of us happy so do not scream at him:
Quote: "Tony Craig That's fair. But I do hope you'll watch the series, if we can ever get it on TV where you are. Perhaps you will like it. Jess and I always felt that once Lilo had repurposed all of Jumba's original experiments, the stories needed to go elsewhere...in our minds, she has grown up. I don't want to do any stories with a grown up Lilo in them though, I don't want that to detract from the memories of Daveigh and doing that original series. And the time travel thing is so cliche now. Lilo does appear in this new series, but as one of Stitch's good memories. As of this series, he begins a new life elsewhere, but we would certainly have a tie back to Hawaii if it would make sense in a story. This initial 13, it didn't. But unlike the first series, this new one has a definite story arc that goes all the way through, kind of like a long movie. We can continue with that or do something else. I'm just happy that they are back at all (Jumba, Pleakley, Stitch)...And I was surprised to find how popular he was in China...kids really don't know the series, but the movie, if they have a DVD...so they don't know much more than the movie. That was also a consideration. Hope that answers more about why it is what it is. Sorry to be so defensive about it. I think it's really well done, and not because of me. The people in China were all very passionate about it, and did extremely well."

I understand what Tony means even though I think adult Lilo is a missed opportunity. This also implies the series may not feature the experiments.

My apologies if I did not post the links in order!

To Elastico's Foot: Thanks! Yeah I agree. I also like how Stitch and Ai meet right after Stitch lands on earth in that bubble thing instead of Stitch going on that weird low blood sugar like(I have friends with diabetes who compared Stitch's rage with bad insulin reactions LOL) hunger driven rage through the Japanese island town center in "Stitch!" episode 1. Much more effective. Ai also seems more creative in her approaches to problems. From seeing the english trailer for "Stitch and Ai" I also prefer Stitch's VA for "Stitch and Ai" over Ben Diskin (sorry if I mis spelled the name) in "Stitch!". The new VA sounds more natural as Stitch so far.

To Elastico's Foot: I agree, I really like the kidnapping premise over the anime, and I am slightly bothered by Stitch seemingly not desperate to return to Lilo. But remember we only have access to the Chinese dub not the english that it was first produced in so it is possible that Stitch wants to return to Lilo once the aliens trying to capture him have been disposed of in some way i.e perhaps it is safer for Stitch to temporally live with Ai until the danger has passed. The Grand Council Woman does mention Lilo at one point and perhaps Cobra's odd presence in this show is because they eventually hope to get Stitch back to Lilo. Stitch seems to think of Lilo in flashbacks quite a few times so that is hopeful. I also wonder if Stitch has a bit of PTSD from being separated from Lilo since he seems distressed during the flashbacks. I also re watched episode 1 of "Stitch!" and you are right, Ai's intro is vastly better than Yuna's when they first meet Stitch.

I will watch as much of the "Stitch and Ai" as I can and report back. Some stuff about "Stitch and Ai" appeared on some Wikis Info below: (Most of it we know already)


In the Chinese animated series Stitch & Ai (2017), Stitch has been kidnapped from Lilo by space pirates and is held captive in their spaceship. However, when a rival gang attacks the ship wanting Stitch for themselves, he uses the opportunity to escape back to Earth. He ends up in the Huangshan mountains and meets a young Chinese girl who lives there named Ai Ling, who (similarly to Lilo) takes him into her family as her new pet "dog".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stitch_%26_Ai

Stitch & Ai (Chinese: 安玲與史迪奇; pinyin: Ān líng yǔ shǐ dí qí) is a Chinese animated spin-off of Disney's Lilo & Stitch franchise and the successor to the Stitch! anime series. The show features a Chinese girl named Ai in place of Yuna, and is set in the Huangshan Mountains of China. The TV series is produced by Anhui Xinhua Media and Panimation Hwakai Media and began broadcast on CCTV-14 on March 27, 2017.[1] Unlike Stitch!, this series was originally produced in English in co-operation with American animators and then dubbed into its local language. An international broadcast has yet to be announced.[2]

Stitch & Ai (安玲与史迪奇 "An Ling and Stitch") is a television series spinoff of Lilo & Stitch produced for Chinese audiences that premiered on March 27, 2017 on CCTV-1 and CCTV-14. It is the Lilo & Stitch franchise's third TV series, after the Western-animated Lilo & Stitch: The Series and the anime Stitch!.
Similar in premise to the anime series Stitch!, the series sees Stitch separated from Lilo after being captured by a gang of space pirates who had hoped to replicate Jumba's research. When Stitch escapes, he ends up re-entering Earth's atmosphere over China and ends up landing in the Huangshan Mountains where he befriends a young girl named Ai and becomes part of her family.
While the series was produced in English before being dubbed in Mandarin for Chinese broadcast, plans for any potential U.S. or other international release are currently unknown.

To Doverstar: Mahalo for the link! You are absolutely right that people need to watch the series first! I posted the link to the Save L&S tumblr account along with some other "Stitch and Ai" posts. I watched more episodes of "Stitch and Ai" and so far I really like this series honestly!! Ai is adorable. To be honest Ai reminds me of your version of Lilo's daughter Ani in both design and personality if you don't mind my saying so. I mean that as a huge compliment! I also noticed that there is more than one flashback of Lilo in "Stitch and Ai" in the first movie and the re-animations of the Lilo & Stitch first movie scenes are vastly better than the "Stitch!" season 3 episode "Reunion with Lilo". I noticed in one episode Ai sees some spirits or ghosts and it seems to imply her parents are dead like Lilo's so perhaps the older lady living with Ai and her sister is an aunt or something? That's not to say I don't have some problems with this series like some scenes basically being rehashes of "Stitch!" scenes, and Cobra Bubbles mysteriously helping the Grand Council Woman and there not being any attempt by Stitch,Pleakley or Jumba to return home to Lilo. However some of my issues with this series are simply from the lack of english translation. I hope somebody finds copies with english subs or dubbing and uploads them eventually. I also hope "Stitch and Ai" gets more than 13 episodes and airs in the U.S. From what I have seen a lot of people hate that Lilo is not really in "Stitch and Ai" but like the animation and prefer "Stitch and Ai" over the "Stitch! anime".

To Sam Cook: So "Stitch!" is airing in Britain again? Have you watched the new series "Stitch and Ai"???

To Starryblast9: Mahalo for the trailer! Apparently the show was animated in an english speaking country so it is already english dubbed,hence the trailer being in english, but that it may not get a U.S release. My personal theory is that after the negative reaction to Stitch! Disney may not want to try releasing new Stitch content here in the U.S which would TOTALLY SUCK because I REALLY WANT TO SEE THIS SERIES IN THE U.S and I will be emailing Disney begging them to release this on one of the U.S Disney Channels. I LOVE that they actually acknowledged that Lilo exists in the very first episode of this series!!!! This "Stitch & Ai" series seems to apply these evil aliens chasing Stitch throughout the series may have kidnapped Stitch and therefore separated Lilo and Stitch forcibly in a way that would be clearly beyond their control. This would be a much better explanation than that Lilo has a boyfriend or the Lilo went to college abandonment plot line from the Japanese series. I like Ai's sister as well. Both seem like interesting female leads who can take care of themselves and the older adult female who I'm guessing is Ai's mother is pretty funny with her dizzy spells and fainting LOL.

To Elastico's Foot: I agree with your assessment of Ai, Stitch,animation and the storytelling. As to Lilo I completely understand why you are upset because Ai could have so easily been written as Lilo's daughter, heck, Ai even has black hair and brown eyes and her eyes and body are animated almost the same as Lilo's i.e very expressive. I can so easily picture Ai and Lilo as being mother and daughter in both personality and looks. Or they could have had Lilo and the GrandCouncilwoman give Stitch a special mission to teach little lonely girls the meaning of Ohana like how Lilo and Stitch were originally tasked with finding experiments. The sad thing is that these options would so easily continue Lilo's story but they just don't do it and that is lazy and I do hate that Lilo is getting the short shift because in my opinion Lilo is one of the best realizations of a female character ever. That being said, "Stitch!" and "Stitch and Ai" are what we are getting at the moment so I choose to accept it and enjoy the new content as its own separate series which will hopefully inspire new Stitch related fan fics.

To Elastico's Foot: Thanks! Sorry for my late reply.

Starryblast9: WHOA! OMG! A NEW STITCH SERIES???!!!!!! I watched it(one episode anyway) and I have to say the new designs are beautiful. They seem a bit closer to the design of Lilo & Stitch. The new girl is cute and younger and more innocent than Yuna which I like. This of course begs the question of what happened to Lilo and Yuna in the new canon? Is Yuna dead? Is Lilo grown up? or dead? Can you PLEASE find more information on what the series plot line is? Can you post links and info in english here please??? What is the name of the new series??? i.e How do I look it up? Do you have the link to the trailer? When I clicked on that link I got episodes not the trailer. This also makes me think of 2 other questions, why do they always pair Stitch with girls and not boys? And what are they gonna do next? "Stitch in India"? LOL. In all seriousness I'm glad the Stitch franchise is continuing on. Honestly I'm excited by this!

To Jowad: I just updated the revival petition for you here https://www.change.org/p/the-walt-disney-company-reboot-of-lilo-stitch-the-series/u/19758992
I hope the update is to your liking.

To Elastico' Foot: Mahalo for understanding! Yokai are interesting as a cultural tibit but they definitely do not fit into a sci fi setting as actual characters. However I don't mind Stitch learning about spirituality be it Hawaiian Gods,or religions like Christianity or Hinduism etc. It would be really interesting to see the experiments get character development through exploring other earth cultures. I met somebody really cool the other day who was a hindu and I kinda thought it would be cute if one of the experiments suddenly decided to become a hindu in a fan fic! I may write that myself if one of you guys don't. :)
I agree and good way of wording it. I think Angel could have broken the glass and caught herself on part of a building or tree with a fancy acrobatic move.

To Starryblast9: sorry, I made a slight error on my last post. I meant it makes sense for Lilo to be somewhat immature as she is a kid but her writing feels inconsistent sometimes.

To Starryblast9: I always thought the Japanese characters in "Stitch!" believed Stitch and his cousins were Yokai like Kijimunna so maybe Angel just tells people she's a yokai? Still I agree it doesn’t make much sense and would put Angel in danger.
In terms of Lilo, in some episodes like "Elastico" and "Snafu" Lilo seems written as very selfish in regards to family responsibilities where as in "Drowsy" she is the opposite where she almost focuses too much on the experiments to the point of exhaustion so her writing is not consistent. It makes sense Lilo would be selfish and somewhat immature because she is between the ages of 6 and 9 years old. However I just remembered something about “Snafu” as I typed this which is that Lilo believed that all the experiments that were captured by Gantu had been sent to Hamsterviel and were therefore too difficult to rescue. She comments "We don't know where she is" when talking about Angel.

To Elastico’s Foot: SO Sorry for my long absence as well. School is difficult and I’m trying to find an actor for a lead role in my own film. The 2 other people I had in mind couldn’t do the roles because they are in poor health. If you know anywhere I could find some actors quick let me know? Anyway...
Yes I agree. On the note of misogyny, do you think Lilo getting rescued and screaming for Stitch to help her is also misogynistic?? Just curious.

To Jowad: Hate to repetitive with the petition again but the reboot one is almost up to 25 signatures so I will do an update in between my work ASAP.

To Jowad: Of course I have seen "Origin of Stitch".It's on my "Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has A Glitch" DVD. I thought it was really touching,especially when Stitch says "monster" and the ending when Jumba and Stitch hug.

To Elastico's Foot: It was a long time ago so I can't give you an exact quote but Pleakley said something along the lines of "You're making a huge mess!" or something general like that. I don't think many fans would want to see Angel get injured or die as a way of "finding out". However if I had written the episode I would have simply had Angel smash the glass,start falling and have Stitch see this and catch her mid air. I do not mind conflict between Lilo and Stitch. Arguments happen in families and friendships. But I agree that any argument Lilo and Stitch have would NOT end their deep friendship. What kind of message does Lilo and Stitch splitting send to kids? That friendships will break off completely due to petty things. Not a good message. I will comment on your story when I'm not working.

To Starryblast9: I despise Tigerlily! Awful. Yeah I always thought Angel being a singer would set off a fear of alien invasion but perhaps by the time period the anime occurs in people on earth are used to seeing the experiments? Just a random thought. I agree "Snafu" was lazy last moment writing. I had a problem with Lilo not realizing the danger she put the whole galaxy in, let alone the experiments themselves. I guess Jess Winfield who had a hand in the anime dub as well as writing "Snafu" sees Lilo as a person who abandons others which I do not like because it makes absolutely no sense given she lost her parents and feeds a fish every single week. Lilo is not an abandoner! It's possible they ignored the gold mine of character potential of the experiments because they knew from the beginning of production the series would end at only 65 episodes. Lazy.

To Jowad: I know you want to promote the petitions but I agree that you need to be careful not to be too overly forceful or repetitive in promoting. I'm trying to promote a new film I wrote so I can cast actors in it but I have to not over do it or people won't want to help with the film. Speaking of which, any ideas on how I can promote my film?? Anyway, I did see "Tangled:Before Ever After" and it was pretty good, not where I expected it to go as it appears to be taking place right before Rupenzel marries Eugene.

To Starryblast9: My favorite experiments…hmm…I would say Sample because I love Sample's almost chilled out design despite being loud as heck, Swapper because I love his design, Spooky because I love his powers,Sparky because I liked his personality, Angel because I think she's cute and sweet in L&S The Series.
My worst episode of Lilo & Stitch was "Elastico" because Lilo acted like a jerk. As for the Stitch! anime I also really disliked season 3 except for the Lilo episode and the finale with Dark End. Stitch! season 3 was just too formulaic for my taste like they didn't even bother to watch seasons 1 or 2 before producing season 3. The Lilo & Stitch episode "Snafu" didn't bother me at all when I first saw it but yes it is odd that Lilo waited that long and that only Nosy managed to escape. I have a fan theory that perhaps the experiments were not properly fed under Hamsterviel's care so maybe the experiments were weak and not thinking straight so even Angel did not think to smash the glass until motivated by Stitch. However I disagree that Lilo was not serious about the rescue because she did thoroughly plan it once she decided to do it.

To Elastico's Foot: I really like the story but can’t think of any further thoughts at the moment. I will let you know if I think of any later. I promise. I’m just very busy. In regards to the episode “Reuben 2.0” as a female myself I agree it was definitely not the best writing of a female character to say the least, but if Angel had smashed the glass it is possible she could have fallen to her death so that might be why she waited for one of the boys to rescue her. We do not know if she is indestructible like Stitch or not. It was the way Angel passively waited around before being captured by Gantu in the glass dome that bugged me. I like strong female leads. That’s why I liked that Yuna knows karate. I think the ankle bitting line is just a result of bad dubbing. I do not think Pleakley says that in the Japanese version at all judging from the bit of rough translation I got from a youtube commentator. Nothing more than a forced gag.

To Jowad: I simply do not have time to post every link here that I post the L&S petitions to. I do NOT want to post certain links without permission either. I have to spend time promoting a new project of my own too. I'm sorry! However I can post a few links as one larger post at a later date if needed. The good news is that we got a few new signatures on each L&S petition recently.

To Jowad: I added the review video and another good video about Lilo to the tumblr here

http://saveliloandstitch.tumblr.com/post/157199752934/a-member-of-our-ohana-shout-out-found-this-neat

http://saveliloandstitch.tumblr.com/post/157199852104/an-interesting-analysis-of-lilos-character

I agree with most of the review but I don't find Lilo & Stitch to be imbalanced between the alien and human parts like he does.

To KarolynMessina: If you want to see a series with Lilo older and Stitch having adventures with her and her daughter check out the stories at this link.

http://doverstar.deviantart.com

Doverstar writes fantastic fanfics about Lilo and her daughter Ani and in her stories her version of Ani has ADHD which makes the stories interesting.

To Starryblast9: Mahalo and no problem!

To Elastico's Foot: I like ALL of your plot ideas honestly but the Spooky and Sparky ones are the most appealing to me personally. I can't wait to see all of them! You should have been an episode writer on the series itself. Then it would have lasted more than 100 episodes.

To Starryblast9: Mahalo for the extra promotion of the L&S petition.

To Elastico's Foot: Thank you for the birthday wishes! I like your story ideas, especially that each experiment gets a story before and after being reformed. Do it!

To Simba100: Happy Birthday to you too! It's really neat that your birthday is one day after mine.

To Jowad and Elastico's Foot: I agree with Elastico's Foot. I don't think something as small as a meme would influence a Lilo & Stitch comeback. It would have to be a bigger bit of fan content like how fan work(songs,cosplays,fan art) of the brony community influenced the making of some scenes in the movie "My Little Pony: Equestria Girls"

To Starryblast9: I just saw the new signature. That is fine! As far as I can tell if you are just signing petitions on Change.org instead of making them the site makes you sign with your real name. Thank you so much for signing the Lilo & Stitch petition!

To Jowad: I re shared the petition on DA and I will reshare it on the L&S tumblr ASAP when I sign back in there now that it has been edited so we get more signatures. I will re email it to Wayne when I talk to him again too. Also excuse my spelling. I meant to say "I assure you the fans will understand WITHOUT mentioning the "Stitch!" anime at all and I really prefer the way the petition is now!

To Jowad: Mahalo! (thank you) Here is the link to the new "L&S Revival" petition https://www.change.org/p/the-walt-disney-company-reboot-of-lilo-stitch-the-series?recruiter=53700854&utm_source=petitions_show_components_action_panel_wrapper&utm_medium=copylink
The URL has the old title for some odd reason by default, but all of your other changes are there including a new title. I copied your wording that you mentioned below except for the anime part which I felt no longer needed to be mentioned. When I tried to add the part about the anime it sounded confusing since without the word "reboot" there is no longer any need to mention the anime because now people won't have to know the difference between the 2 "reboots". I say this because "Stitch!" is essentially a reboot NOT a revival. If you still feel the anime text is needed let me know? However I assure you people will understand the petition with "Stitch!' in the description!!

To Starryblast9: I think the petition will be more to your liking now. :)

To Jowad: I saw your comments(I assume they are yours because I know how you write) on Eddyoshi's latest L&S "Yarrp" review. Did you want me to edit or delete the reboot one? I figured the reboot petition would cause problems even before Starryblast9 brought it up. In regards to Angel, she was not the only experiment to have merchandise made. I know because I have plastic figures of other experiments but yes I would like to see more experiments made.

To Jowad: I saw that trailer recently and I think it will be pretty good. I personally think it will be more like "Return Of The Roar" where it will be more like a double length episode where as Stitch! The Movie feels more like an actual movie than a TV episode with the kidnapping Jumba plot etc. Do you see any info on a release date for the "Tangled Series Pilot"?

To Jowad: I'm glad it's okay with you and yes I will post your L&S drawing request to the tumblr if you like. As for the petitions I am trying to think of other ways of promoting the L&S petitions.

To Starryblast9 and Elastico's foot: In regards to grammar, yeah Stitch's grammar in the anime is a little jarring. It's not the fact that Stitch uses contractions that is unrealistic, instead it is that he uses them correctly. I have friends who are from other countries who did not learn english until they were young adults. Oftentimes, my friends will try to fit in with American culture by using terms like "I'm" or "I'd" but they are not sure exactly when to use them so they end up "talking funny" by accident. I think they could have tried something like this with Stitch to make him sound more natural. It could be that because the anime is a dub that they had to do certain things with Stitch's grammar in order to fit everything in and I'm sure it was made harder by the way the original Japanese creators made Stitch speak perfect Japanese. I like some of Ben's acting but just as with Jumba and Pleakley it feels like an imitation. It is more important to act and get the emotion across to communicate to the audience but I don't think they used this principal in the anime. I can imitate Stitch's voice,and many of the other characters but I certainly do not sound like the original actors either.

To Elastico's Foot: I would love to see how you write Remmy! I actually liked Remmy's voice in the english dub of the anime.

To Jowad: Yes I can make the L&S drawing request for you and post it to my DA page. I just need to teach myself to draw Reuben and find a working scanner. Just as a heads up, because my disability effects my hands my drawings look very,very childlike. It won't look like a professional drawing. Is that okay with you??

To Starryblast9: Thank you! I'm not glad that you felt like throwing up, but I am glad that I am not the only one who experienced that! You're welcome!! THANK YOU SO MUCH! (Almost wish I could post your compliment on my tumblr!) If my film work has inspired you then I have done my job as a creator! I think it is a wonderful idea for you to write about your own disorder!!! This link is not about Lilo & Stitch so it is off topic but it does talk about the importance of creating ones own content in regards to disability http://www.theapothetae.org/news/a-call-to-action-apap-plenary-session-january-7th-2017 I thought it may interest you and inspire and motivate you to keep creating. I also read a blog post once titled "Hannah's tips for writing a character with a chronic illness" that was really great. Google it. It might still be online. I remember hearing from a fan of mine who had diabetes that she wished there were more characters with disorders,disabilities and chronic illness for her to relate to. By writing about your condition you may help a lot of people in your situation who need somebody to relate to so go for it! Yeah my family is the same way about privacy on the internet because stuff that's online is really hard to get rid of, if at all. In regards to Stitch, it seems that anime Stitch does not think things through as much as the original. I know the original Stitch is also implosive but the original was more careful with his actions in the long run. I liked Twang and Cyber from the anime the most.

Thank you so much for uploading the english dub and trying to translate the episodes via google!!! Much appreciated!!!!

To Jowad: If that episode was meant to be both a parody and have an intense lava scene I'm not surprised it was cut. I agree Disney probably had legal issues and deemed it inappropriate. According to the "Lilo & Stitch 2-Disc special addition DVD" of the first movie, there was originally a scene where Stitch fell into lava and almost died but Disney cut it because it was deemed too dark for kids. I would love to see the real 628. I imagine 628 would look similar to Stitch.

Everybody, I was notified by the guy who uploaded the youtube video of "Stitch! Perfect Memory" that he may try to upload another copy so I may have to repost that link.

To Elastico's Foot: LOL oops! My bad! If I ever misspell the usernames here please do not take it personally. Sometimes my "auto spell check" thing is on and will mis spell usernames. I agree. I like when characters get one on one time for interaction but I never understood why they choose Pleaklety to pair with Stitch when you have Jumba and other experiments. Maybe they will make more specials with Stitch pairing up with other characters. I really wish Stitch paired up as a team with Nani more in the original. I liked them together as friends in 'LINK". Pleakley can be annoying in the anime. However I do not find Pleakley annoying in the original. I think he's funny.

To Jowad: Yes I know. That is why "Lilo & Stitch The Series" has a different title than the movie. I wish they kept it as "Lilo & Stitch A New Ohana" because it makes more sense and Lilo's name should have been included anyway because she has a large role in the film. They gave Lilo the "short shift" as my friend would say.

My thoughts on the new Stitch! anime episode: Slight SPOILERS! It was a really sweet story idea and better than Planet Of The Sand but I can’t stand Pleakley’s new voice and Stitch’s voice sounds too deep in some scenes.

To Elastico: Oh oops! My involuntary eye movements must have kicked in LOL sorry. Now I get it! Adorable idea! I like your experiment choices too! And yes I think for Lilo after what they went through in "Leroy & Stitch" Reuben would have the motivation to make a gift like that.

To Jowad: I don’t know if Reuben is a strong enough character for a whole movie but I know he can carry his own episodes. I think they are good as best cousins and team mates.

To Starryblast9: No worries! Thanks so much! The surgery wasn’t painful really because they gave me really good pain killers but the pain killers made me feel awful i.e dizzy,wanted to throw up. I'm not sure what they used back in those days LOL. Once the drugs they used wore off it wasn’t too bad. I am fully recovered and have been for years. Looking back,the surgery was worth it. I'm glad I did it.
I'm SO glad you like what I'm doing! I always enjoy hearing feedback! I hope to do more projects like that someday soon. Thanks for "liking" my tumblr blog post! As to "Stitch!" they did regress him but even in the original series it was established the Stitch can eat non food items like shoes so him going on a starved rampage from an experiment version of low blood sugar didn't bother me much. It was his naughty rampage in the cruiser beforehand that did not make much sense to me. Yeah parents tend not to like when they find our online stuff in my experience but glad they were impressed.

To The Flying Fox: Thank you so much! Mahalo! I posted it on the tumblr here http://saveliloandstitch.tumblr.com/post/155535377719/stitch-perfect-memory-english-dub for the fans of the Stitch! anime. The voice acting definitely sounds different. Can you give me the link to the youtube version when you upload that please?? Thanks!

To Elastico's Foot: I completely understand! You do your thing! You already have some really great plot ideas of your own so if I were you I would just follow your writing instincts! I love the idea of Reuben living with Lilo! Ever since "Leroy & Stitch" where I got to see how great they are together I have wanted a story where they live together. I can't really picture the sewn at the head idea but it sounds clever. I am perfectly fine with the idea that the anime is an alternate universe. The anime itself mentions wormholes so I think that is a perfectly believable explanation.

To Starryblast9: Very good points. The anime is clearly trying to follow some of the Ohana message by trying to write about friendship and family but it does not always come off well. Unfortunately I see a similar trend in a lot of media now where you could have a lot of good emotional friendship driven drama but they focus way too much on cheap, fast paced gags which are not even that funny. I would love "Scrump versions" of all the experiments!!! I tried making clay experiments once myself. They already have Tsum Tsum so I'm surprised they haven't at least released all the experiments in that form. Good luck on drivers ed! Hope it was successful!

To Jowad: The only thing that got very formulaic to me was the Gantu looking like a fish jokes from Reuben over and over. Most of the episodes found some way to switch it up. Phineas & Ferb is a lot more formulaic to me than L&S is, but the show is still very charming. I'll put the Angel Funko on my birthday list :) I want to see more of Sample,Swapper,627, and especially Leroy. Leroy has a lot of unused potential. Leroy needs a boojiboo too!

To Jawad: Thanks! No worries. If I could I would start a Lilo & Stitch convention for the 15th anniversary but I do not have the resources. I can assure you some cool fan art with be posted to places like DA and youtube for the 15th anniversary though! I have never been on "Stitch's Great Escape" but I always wanted to ride it. From what I have seen on youtube the ride is super cool. Definitely on my bucket list if I ever go to Florida. My best friend went to Disney in Florida once and I told him "TAKE ME WITH YOU!" My friend couldn't invite me for various logistical reasons but he brought me back a beautiful Stitch pin that has Stitch sitting like a dog. I can ask him if he went on the ride. YES! I want Sparky,Swapper,Dupe and a bunch of the other experiments as plush dolls!!!!! I know Dupe is sold outside the U.S. I have little figurines of Kixx,Mr Stenchy,Yang and Hamsterviel and I wish they would make both more figurines and plush dolls of the experiments!! I went to Build A Bear to buy some other plush animals and found out from one of the employees that they used to sell Stitch as a plush so I asked her if they would sell the experiments and she said if people contact Build A Bear they might release the experiments so I would suggest contacting them, they have a Facebook and a phone number and email so just google them and contact them. Fans demanded they release Applejack from My Little Pony as a plush and a few months later they release her! I have Applejack too! hehe :)

To Jowad: You're welcome! Yes I noticed. :) When I ask Wayne to update my website again I can ask him about the petitions. Just be patient.

To Elastico's Foot: The "Dupe" episode of L&S covered that lesson of quality over quantity pretty well despite Lilo still interacting with Myrtle. It seems that in an effort to get kids to except differences they don't focus on that lesson to much. I agree. I'm writing a character who is going through some tough times in his life to get across his optimism.

To Jowad: Welcome back! Merry belated Christmas! The petitions are going well. The petitions are going well. The last time I checked the DVD petition it had 13 supporters and the reboot petition had 6 supporters. I continue to promote the petitions anywhere I can.

To Starryblast9: Yes getting people who are bad news out of your life is an excellent message but I do not expect kid's media to do that message any time soon. With my disability the brain constantly tells the muscles to tighten up so when I was little they just loosened the muscles in my legs through surgery for me so I could walk. I have intense fear of surgery LOL If you want to learn more about Cerebral Palsy there is more info about it on my website here http://cripvideoproductions.com/about.php if you scroll down to the part that says "More". I'm so sorry you had a scare! I'm glad you got through it in one piece. I'm glad you liked my bit of writing! Yeah they easily could have developed her more. You're very welcome! It sounds like you are off to a fabulous start with the character development on the experiments! Clip/Hammerface sounds adorable. My personal theory was that the red blasts were hot plasma blasts and the green ones were regular plasma. Feel free to use that theory too if you like. Maybe Plasmoid can heat the blasts up in his tail? I especially like your character development on Heat! It gives him a relatable innocence. As for the food, since the experiments had to be kept in the experiment pods I wonder what the method of feeding them food was? That might be something you want to bring up in a fanfic since I don't think Hamsterviel would risk letting the experiments loose inside his cell just to feed them since he had to hide them from the guards. Perhaps those pods have a food hatch somewhere? Keep up the great work!!!!!

To Starryblast9 and Elastico's Foot: Mahalo for the Christmas wishes! It may be that the writers of a lot of kids media think anything less than "kill them with kindness" will be censored or considered to be "advocating violence". I don't know for sure though.

To Starryblast9: You're welcome! You know, I'm not sure if I remember them putting a heating pad on me because this was so many years ago. The painkillers kind of blotted out my memories of parts of my surgeries that the blood tests were taken for. You bet! I would love to help! I agree that I would have loved to see Yuna's mom mentioned more which is why I wrote an entire scene in one of my fanfics where Yuna and adult Lilo talk about dead family members here:

"YUNA:You lost family members too?(quickly) Sorry, I shouldn't ask such a personal question. You don't have to answer.

LILO :It's okay Yuna. Yes, my mother and father died in a car crash during a rain storm when I was 6. My sister Nani and I woke up a few hours later to a bunch of police cars parked outside our house. They told us both of our parents were dead. My sister applied to be my gardian. She was 18 so it was legal but she had a really hard time getting social services to agree to it. One social worker after another. A few days after I met Stitch the last social worker we had Cobra Bubbles, tried to take me away from Nani. But when the Grand Council Woman allowed Stitch to stay on earth she said we were a family by Galactic Federation law, and we were allowed to stay an Ohana. Believe it or not Cobra Bubbles even became our friend after that.

YUNA: My mother died in a Typhoon when I was 9 months old. I never really knew her. The only memory I have of her is a lullaby she used to sing to me. I can only imagine what it must have been like to lose both your parents.

LILO :I'm sorry to hear that. It was very hard for me but I can only imagine what it is like to not have known your mom at all.

YUNA: Believe me, I wish I could have known her. "

Granted this is from a long time ago so it is not my best work but I think the anime writers could at least pull something like this off. As for Heat, Heat being physically effected is an EXCELLENT IDEA! I always wondered if the experiments kept by Hamsterviel were even properly fed. The most important thing that I learned about writing disabled characters is that you have to give them a character flaw other than the disability itself to give them more depth. Then you can have the character flaw like say,stubbornness effect how they live with the disability.

Mele Kalikimaka i.e Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Save Lilo & Stitch!

To Starryblast9: Sorry for my delay in responding. Now I understand. No wonder this has so much meaning for you! I heard a story like that about how a boy was bullied at his school for being a brony by kids who thought he was gay. He tried to take his own life but thank god he survived. I have seen the damage that suicide, and attempted suicide can do and recently gave a speech on suicide prevention. It is something that means very,very much to me because I believe every life has value and life must be protected. We certainly need to prevent suicide and bullying in any way that we can but you need to do so in a way which is also healthy for you. I find with causes like that it is best if I take short breaks and then go back to it when I am physically and mentally up for it again. It can take a lot out of you if you don't rest regularly. I know the feeling there, I'm told my veins are small too. Yes, please do not worry about being called weird about your fan fics. I would ABSOLUTELY love to read a a whole fanfic about Heat! The fact that nobody writes about the lessor known experiments is what will make your fanfics unique and draw attention to them. If you ever want to write a disabled character or disabled experiment let me know and I would be happy to give you some pointers I picked up from writing disabled characters myself? You make some more good points about the anime and Yuna. I think you may have a particularly good point about Yuna perhaps not realizing her situation. She's so young that it would certainly make sense.

I agree with you both on Yuna with the bullies. I see that type of engagement with bullies in children's media a lot and it bothers me.

Elastico's Foot: I agree that the anime is very what I personally call "culture specific". However nobody has ever truly confirmed the reason for the anime being cancelled in the U.S.

To Starryblast9: Sorry if I'm butting in. I do not mean to upset you with anything I am about to say. I'm no expert but in my own life when it came to fandom fights I had to remember that I can say my piece if I feel strongly about my belief, but if the haters want to continue to hate it is NOT my responsibility to change them. People are responsible for their own behavior and opinion. If the hate just goes on and on and on, I have to tell myself to just let go and let them feel the way they feel. If they become aggressive trolls I simply do not engage them at all. It's not worth it. I have to save myself the stress. You obviously have a considerable amount of health issues to deal with. I feel your pain. I got the same bruise when my blood test for my surgery for my disability called cerebral palsy got messed up because they confused my sample with another patient so they had to do the whole thing again. Not fun. I had to let go of fandom stuff and focus on my own body and my needs at that time. You cannot change an entire fandom by yourself. People have to come to their own realizations about their opinion with regards to L&S and the Stitch! anime. You can tell them something over and over but they often won’t take it in with an open mind until they perhaps do a bit of soul searching. Like "Elastico's Foot" said: There is no shame in crying when you learn something about yourself!!! That is a first step to healing! I also have to agree with what "Elastico Foot" said about creating. I was very frustrated with things going on in the disability community and realized that instead of endlessly trying to go back and forth on comments with people or change their minds with speeches I could write fictional films about what I was observing and reach a much wider amount of people on a deeper emotional level. Now I have people contacting me through my website here http://cripvideoproductions.com internationally saying that my creative honesty has brought them peace and understanding just like creating the films brought peace to myself. My writing is how I make sense of my emotions and how I say the things I can't hope to say in a verbal argument or youtube comment. I also tried to do the same thing with some Lilo & Stitch fanfics on my DA page here and there. The fanfics become like practice runs for my original stories because I get to see what works story wise and what does not from the feedback of others. I tell people: Don't wait for others to create what you want to see in media. Create exactly what you want to see! Hollywood sure as heck isn't going to do it for us. Mahalo for sharing with us! If there is anything I can do to help you at any point let me know? In case your wandering I have seen fandoms do worst things than StitchxYuna, much,much, worse. I'm also following you on DA now. :)

To Elastico's Foot: MAHALO! Excellent points! That is one of the best, and most well thought posts on Yuna's character I have ever seen! To me personally what I gather from your comment is that the writers had potential with Yuna's flaws but never actually used her potential. Here's an idea for a conflict I came up with after reading your analysis: Stitch goes easy on Yuna in episode 1 of season 1 but then Gantu and Hamsterviel show up and Stitch admits that he went easy on her after a fight with the villains in which Yuna loses. To me it is believable that Yuna could be black belt or almost black belt level at 10 because I do martial arts now myself and I'm only 2 belts away from black after only 4 years. What is unbelievable as you said is Yuna's ability to match up to genetically modified aliens. And yes compared to Lilo and Nani and pretty much all the characters in the original L&S Yuna will be bland.

To everybody: At the request of my online buddy Daniel Newton I made a 3rd petition for Lilo & Stitch The Series to be released on DVD in the United Kingdom. If anybody is interested in seeing Lilo & Stitch The Series released on DVD in the UK sign here.

To Jowad: Here is the Doug Walker review of Leroy & Stitch on the tumblr for you Leroy & Stitch Disneycember review on tumblr He liked Leroy & Stitch!

To Elastico's Foot: Yes I was referring to the "Elastico" episode. My main problem with that episode is that Lilo's anger towards Stitch is somewhat unjustified to say the least. Example: Lilo is practicing her hula trying to make it perfect and Stitch tries to be playful by making yarn sound like a guitar. Her response is a very snarky "I'm practicing" before Stitch even breaks the hula dress. Lilo does similar things in Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has A Glitch after Stitch has a major glitch at her hula rehearsal but in "Stitch has a Glitch" it is justified in my opinion because Stitch literally threw a speaker at the other little girls and terrified everybody half to death leading to Lilo getting blamed by the teacher Kumu so Lilo feels she may not get to be part of the contest and so gets angry at Stitch. I know "Stitch Has A Glitch" is a movie where they have much more time to progress the story and characters than in the TV series but there was no reason to make Lilo so snarky and seemly uncaring about anything but proving herself to Myrtle until the end of said episode. Myrtle also said something more more deeply hurtful in the movie than in "Elastico" to Lilo so Lilo's drive to beat Myrtle is not as strong or understandable as Lilo wanting to follow in her dead mother's footsteps. At one point I theorized on my DA account that I believed that in the Stitch! anime when Lilo goes to collage Stitch feels the exact same way that he did in the Elastico episode and leaves. Obviously the implication is that Stitch reads into things WAY to quickly when Lilo is off doing her thing(which I totally understand because I'm the same way sometimes,especially when I was younger)and doesn't realize that just because Lilo isn't paying attention to him every second doesn't mean she does not love him. As to Yuna I think she and Stitch are indeed prone to fighting a lot more and are much more annoyed by each other because Yuna oftentimes holds things in until they blurt out of her in anger. She also tends not to let little things go. One very slight improvement in Yuna's character as opposed to Lilo is Yuna takes an active physical role where as Lilo never really did except for in "Ploot" and the Kim Possible crossover in my humble opinion. I just wish Yuna being more physically capable as a fighter etc did not come at the expense of Stitch using his powers properly which led to Stitch often having to be rescued himself in the anime. I think the anime writers could have easily had both Yuna and Stitch be capable fighters. If you want to tell me your thoughts on Yuna for the sake of analytical discussion go right ahead.

To Starryblast9: I'm sorry you have anemia and thyroid problems. I know people IRL who have those conditions so I know they are hard to deal with. Please take care of yourself. I must correct you, I DO care about what the fandom does and have called out people on comments and Lilo & Stitch forums on the subject. At one point a few years ago me and some other team leaders had to make sure this ohana shout out did not become a place for anime haters to fight with other fans because it was getting annoying for us as well. The whole "Lilo & Stitch The Series" is not cannon to Stitch Has A Glitch really,really irked me. I have also seen these same kind of fights within the brony community which I am also part of and called them out on it. I write original stories about people with disabilities and try to remain as inclusive as possible with the stories while also calling out major problems that I see in disability rights. However through this process I have come to see that for me and many other creators in this world no matter how inclusive you try to be there will always be someone who is unhappy no matter what you do. So my general rule for myself is to be as inclusive as possible but also never to compromise my true beliefs. I like to hear your perspective and all other perspectives and I certainly did not mean to sound as though I did not care and I apologize if I sounded disrespectful in any way. I say again if the 'reboot petition" were not a request I would have made it very very general. For years I wanted to make a "Have Stitch! anime air again in U.S" sort of campaign or petition but have not done it really because of the reactions you speak of. My point is just that whether or not the petition is ambiguous somebody is going to complain sooner or later which you do seem to understand judging from your comment. Even Jess Winfield who worked on Lilo & Stitch the series and the english dub of the anime knew Lilo being an adult in "Stitch!" season 3 would immediately be controversial and seemed prepared for it. Most petitions are controversial anyway(ask anybody who tried to get petitions signed on a college campus LOL). Since the petition belongs to Jowad you really should voice these concerns to him.

To Elastoco's Foot: I think what Starryblast9 is referring to is that some fans refuse to acknowledge points in the series where Lilo was written poorly and out of character. There are a few rare instances where this happened in my humble opinion. There are also fans who refuse to acknowledge how much Yuna truly loves Stitch and is distraught anytime she thinks she might lose him. With all do respect I think Yuna is a good character personally,not nearly as good as Lilo for sure! But decent with flaws so I completely disagree with the Mary Sue argument by some, but they use her and Stitch poorly character and story wise especially in season 3. As a writer myself I agree about quality and not being able to control everything. We should not censor opinion or art.

To Jowad: Never mind. I’m working on getting the petition set up for the other person!

To Jowad: Mahalo i.e thanks! I am unable to make a youtube video. I'm sorry. I did post the petitions to my Deviantart page here
http://stitchthebest36.deviantart.com/journal/Made-a-Lilo-and-Stitch-DVD-petition-651627819
http://stitchthebest36.deviantart.com/journal/Lilo-and-Stitch-the-series-reboot-petition-651732318
I also got Eddyoshi and one of my other friends "Daniel Newton" to sign it. Daniel Newton wanted me to make a petition to have Lilo & Stitch The Series released on DVD in the UK so I tried to make a petition for him while also trying to make the 3rd petition we talked about regarding Stitch's cousins at Disney Parks but the website would not allow me to make them. Perhaps it was my browser. I will keep trying. In the meantime would you mind if I edited the text in the DVD petition to include a UK DVD release of the series along with the U.S release as a favor to him???

To StarryBlast9: I'm so sorry someone you know is in the hospital! I pray they feel better very soon! I also second what "Elastico's Foot" said. I am part of other fandoms where the fans are still fighting over events that occurred in certain seasons of shows. The fighting will continue regardless of what production does. As artists they can't please everybody. I do completely understand your position and feelings though because I can't STAND fandom infighting. It is such a waste of time.
