Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch is a 2005 direct-to-video animated film produced by DisneyToon Studios. The film is a followup to the 2002 Disney feature film Lilo & Stitch and takes place before the events of Stitch! The Movie and subsequent additions to the franchise.
This is the only film in the series without actress Daveigh Chase who voices Lilo in all other Lilo & Stitch movies. According to Disney Animation Studios, Chase was so busy working on Lilo & Stitch: The Seriesthat she suggested to have renowned child actress and good friend Dakota Fanning play her. Chris Sanders, the writer/director of the first film did not participate fully. The film also officially became DisneyToon Studios’ first film (and also Disney’s first direct-to-video animated one) to be rated PG by the MPAA for some mild action and DisneyToon’s only one to have that rating until 2013’s theatrical Carsspin-off film Planes.
Jason Scott Lee makes the final appearance as David Kawena (beginning with Stitch! The Movie, Dee Bradley Baker voiced David), as he was too busy with other roles that he booked.
Included on the DVD release of the film is the animated short The Origin of Stitch. The short has a total running time of 4:35 minutes and serves as a bridge between Stitch Has a Glitch and Stitch! The Movie. In the short, Stitch discovers Jumba’s secret computer that reveals what creatures Jumba had used to create Stitch, and also hints at his other 625 experiments. Stitch is scared to find out what a monster he is, only for Jumba to come and explain how he found love when he met Lilo. The short was directed by Mike Disa and co-directed by Tony Bancroft.
