You know, I’ve seen a lot of Disney Mom “Happy Mother’s Day!” posts going around, but all of them I’ve seen neglected one very important Disney “mom.”

So props to Nani, who - for all her shortcomings - genuinely loved her sister and only wanted the best for her. She had to be a mom because she had no choice, and she did her best… her level best. Even if she got frustrated, even if she got scared.

And in the end? She made it work.

Actually crying.

So I just need to get this off my chest:

For me David Kawena from Lilo and Stitch is the ultimate Disney prince because he is there for Nani AND Lilo and even Stitch despite everything that’s going on in their lives. They’re going through some tough stuff. Their parents die and all of the sudden Nani has to be a mom to her sister who is socially awkward and depressed and that’s hard enough as it is and then she gets her this ‘dog’ and everything gets harder and even though she can’t return David’s feelings he’s still there for them through everything. Even aliens. He’s amazing. I was watching Lilo and Stitch with my niece the other day and I cried watching David go through it all. He is the perfect guy. Like I just get emotional thinking about him.

Imagine if you had someone like David in your life - male or female. You would feel like a prince/princess even if you were living with next to nothing.

David is the ultimate Disney prince - even though he isn’t a Disney prince. He should be considered one.

Disney rant - over.

SEARCHING DEVIANTART.COM ALONE, searching for quality pieces of Nani and Lilo Pelekai that don't fetishize Nani and Lilo's bodies is tough. However, the pieces I did find are pretty and well representative of both characters.

“Honestly, I think Lilo and Stitch could’ve been a story about Nani and Lilo alone. About their relationship and the struggles they face. I think the aliens were just thrown in to appeal to little kids, and it sort of breaks the movie for me.”

This really strikes me as an interesting confession. Do you think the film would've been better without the sci-fi/alien family elements, or is it better because of it?
