The galaxy’s most wanted extraterrestrial lands on an island in Hawaii and meets a lonely girl in search of reconnecting her family. Lilo adopts Stitch and is able to unlock his heart and give him the ability to care for someone else; creating an unusual yet lovable extra terrestrial family in the end. This movie revolves around idea of the importance of family and recreating it after a devastating situation. Lilo and Stitch is sure to bring people together and not leave a dry eye in the audience.

“I think Lilo & Stitch is one of the best Disney movies because it shows little kids the importance of family and unconditional love, its important for little kids to realize this at a young age because your family and friends are the only ones that know you better than your know yourself and could help you in a difficult situation,” senior Deylis Perez said.

All in all, Disney movies always exceed expectations but these four top the charts because of their story lines and the moral messages. All can bring a family together by just watching any of these movies and all show a different side of Disney making them the best.
