Disney plans TV series and video sequel for 'Lilo & Stitch'

Walt Disney's latest flick 'Lilo & Stitch' that raked in impressive box office collections, will soon appear as a television series and a video sequel.

According to the company, the film crossed the $100 million mark at the box office in the first three weekends following its release in the US. The video sequel, currently entitled 'Stitch! -- The Movie," is slated for release next year and will serve as a bridge between the feature film and the television series. The series, currently in development under the working title 'Stitch! -- The TV Series' will become a global television franchise following its anticipated launch on Disney Channel late next year. It will unveil on the Disney Channels and Disney-branded TV programmes across the globe.

There are 15 international Disney Channels and nearly 100 Disney- branded blocks of programming in 51 countries reaching 600 million television viewers worldwide currently, the company claims. The channel's launch in India, expected this year, has been delayed due to various reasons.

The initial 39 episodes of the series will be directed by Vic Cook ("Disney's The Legend of Tarzan," "101 Dalmatians, the Series") and Don MacKinnon ("Disney's Teacher's Pet," "Disney/Pixar's Buzz Lightyear of Star Command").

The cast from the film will also feature in the video premiere and the television series. They include Tia Carrere, Ving Rhames and Kevin McDonald.
