As great as other Disney movies are, they present totally unrealistic standards of beauty.



Lilo and Stitch broke out of the Disney mould and portrayed more believable body types without making a big deal out of it.



Lilo wasn’t like other Disney kids—she was chubby and weird and sort of dark.



She dealt with the struggles of being an outsider, representing a lot of kids in the audience who felt left out.



Lilo was realistic. Just like real children, she was kind of a brat sometimes, and it was refreshing to see that represented in an animated film.



Even her doll was strange and different. And that was OK, because Lilo loved it just the same as a the other girls adored their Barbies.



Nani was curvy and athletic, and she didn’t take shit from anyone.
