Stitch & Ai debuts in South East Asia
Last year, we told you about an all-new series based on Disney’s Lilo and Stitch franchise. The Chinese-animated Stitch & Ai has now debuted in South East Asia. Disney Channel Asia premiered the first English language episode of the show on February 5th, with episodes airing Mondays through Thursdays.
Produced by Wanxin Medi and Panimation Hwakai Media in association with Disney, the 13-episode series follows a new girl named Ai, as Stitch finds himself in the Chinese Huangshan Mountains. The Chinese series was produced in conjunction with American Disney animators to help add a sense of visual continuity to the American Stitch productions that was missing from the earlier anime series. The animation studios attached to this series are Showfun Animation, Shanghai Fire & Ice Media and Shanghai Aoju Media.
Here’s the English voice cast:
Ai: Erica Mendez
Stitch: Ben Diskin
Jumba: Jess Winfield
Pleakley: Lucien Dodge
Jiejie: Laura Post
Meiying: Cherami Leigh
Meiying: Xanthe Huynh
Dahu: Lucien Dodge
Aunt Daiyu: Laura Post
Sage: Lucien Dodge
Wombat: Richard Epcar
Platypus: Lucien Dodge
Additional voices are provided by Kyle Hebert, Bobby Thong, Sarah Anne Williams, Deborah Crane, Jacob Craner and Steve Kramer.
Stitch & Ai is currently not scheduled to be released in the western world. The series is one of a handful of Disney projects aimed exclusively at Asian markets.
