Watch a deleted scene from Lilo & Stitch about racist tourists

Here's a nixed, incomplete scene from the 2002 Disney cartoon Lilo & Stitch that took a break from the film's main "alien experiment on the loose" storyline.


This sequence showed how filmmakers were willing to confront those rude tourists who treat Hawaii's residents like the denizens of one big exotic playground. This cute scene would've supplied some surprising and trenchant social commentary for a G-rated summer Disney flick — so in that regard, it's unsurprising it didn't make the final cut.

I can see why it got cut, but man do I love watching the rough drafts of the animation. Lilo & Stitch is such a good movie. On another note, I love how the filmmakers translated much of Stitch's design into Toothless for How to Train Your Dragon.
