Stitch! anime explodes onto Disney XD
Disney’s lovable alien experiment, Stitch will have made his debut on Disney XD Monday in the US television premiere of Stitch! the Japanese anime series produced by Madhouse. After globe trotting, the English version of this series will finally make its debut. But this time, Stitch doesn’t have Lilo by his side. He has a new friend Yuna, as the alien and his friends live in an island village of Japan.
Stitch! is the second animated television series based off of the Lilo & Stitch franchise, which started with the 2002 film of the same name. Since then, the film has spawned three direct-to-video sequels, the 65 episode Lilo & Stich: The Animated series, and of course, this, the Stitch! anime. Stitch!, has been running in Japan since 2008, and has had more than 80 episodes since premiering.
Stitch! will air on Disney XD on weekdays at 9:00 AM EST starting on Monday, October 24. As always, remember to check your local listings to find out when it’s on at your house.
