You must have heard of "Lilo and Stitch", the little rambunctious duo created by Walt Disney Pictures. Lilo was a little girl from Hawaii who unwittingly adopted Stitch, who was actually an illegal genetic experiment of an evil scientist Dr. Jumba Jookiba in a far away world. Lilo and Stitch develop an unbreakable bond and meet many adventures along the way. They have won over our hearts with their mischief and sent the message of 'Ohana', the Hawaiian belief that family extends far beyond immediate relatives.
