It’s time for another Disney+ Battle. This time we are comparing a popular film from Disney’s Experimental Age of Animation and the first film of the Disney Revival. Let’s see who wins between “Lilo & Stitch” and “The Princess and the Frog.”


“Lilo & Stitch” has two main characters. Lilo, a little girl who feels out of place in the world, and Stitch, an alien who has been sent to Earth. Both are at the center of events throughout the film. They carry the movie. Meanwhile, the main character of “The Princess and the Frog” is Tiana, a young woman in New Orleans who is turned into a frog and eventually finds love with another frog. When they get married, they become a prince and princess. All three are solid leads, but I’m giving the advantage to the film with two leads. Point to “Lilo & Stitch.”

The main villain of “Lilo & Stitch” is Captain Gantu. He is the Captain of the Galactic Federation and a rival of Stitch. When he is sent to capture Stitch, he endangers innocent lives on Earth leading to his discharge. Meanwhile, the villain of “The Princess and the Frog” is Dr. Facilier, a voodoo man who is trying to capture a prince to hold off his “friends on the other side.” Both are willing to sacrifice lives to reach their goals, but it’s Dr. Facilier’s goal to hand over someone else’s soul to save himself. That makes him more evil. Point to “The Princess and the Frog.”

Joining Lilo and Stitch on their adventures are Nani and David. They are the most important supporting characters. There’s also the social worker and the other aliens who are trying to track down Stitch. They are fun in the film, but very few are memorable. In “The Princess and the Frog,” there are many more memorable supporting characters. These include Louis the alligator, Ray the firefly, Charlotte, Big Daddy and Mama Odie. Point to “The Princess and the Frog.”

These films feature sharp contrasts in their music styles. “Lilo and Stitch” is filled with Elvis songs and tributes to the Hawaiian culture. “Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride” is a fun and catchy song, and Elvis is the King of Rock and Roll for a reason. The music lasts beyond the film. “The Princess and the Frog” is filled with New Orleans jazz. “Friends on the Other Side,” “Dig A Little Deeper,” and “Almost There” are all great songs. Both films are filled with songs that help bring their settings to life. It just comes down to which does the viewer prefer. I prefer the sounds of New Orleans. Point to “The Princess and the Frog.”

It’s now time for the most subjective of these categories. To me, the memorable moments of “Lilo & Stitch” include the social worker’s arrival, the surfing, and Stitch risking his life to save Lilo. In contrast, I find the most memorable parts of “The Princess and the Frog” to be Prince Naveen’s meeting with Dr. Facilier, Tiana trying to live her and her father’s dream, Tiana turning into a frog, finding Mama Odie, Charlotte immediately trying to give everything she can to help Tiana, and Tiana and Naveen transforming back into humans. “The Princess and the Frog” is more memorable. Point to “The Princess and the Frog.”

“The Princess and the Frog” wins this battle, but don’t sleep on “Lilo & Stitch.” It’s a lot of fun too. Which do you prefer?
