Lilo & Stitch is a feature-length animated film released by Walt Disney Pictures on June 21, 2002. The movie centers around an alien experiment known simply as Experiment 626, created by the mad scientist Jumba Jookiba, who crash lands on the island of Kaua'i, Hawaii and is eventually adopted by a young girl named Lilo Pelekai after disguising himself as a dog, and is given the new name of Stitch. Originally designed by Jumba to be a harbinger of chaos and destruction, he soon grows a close bond to Lilo, even managing to defy his original programming and becoming a member of her "ohana."
After the success of the original Lilo & Stitch, a direct-to-DVD sequel was released on August 26, 2003, called Stitch! The Movie, which directly kicked off the events of Lilo & Stitch The Series on September 20, 2003, which centered around the adventures of both Lilo and Stitch as they attempt to track down the remaining 625 experiments that were scattered across the island of Kaua'i after the events of Stitch! The Movie. The series lasted for two seasons and aired 65 episodes, before coming to a conclusion on June 23, 2006, with the TV movie sequel, Leroy & Stitch.
Between Stitch! The Movie and Leroy & Stitch, another direct-to-DVD sequel was released on August 30, 2005, titled Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has A Glitch, which was branded as a direct sequel to the original Lilo & Stitch, and is set between the events of the original film and Stitch: The Movie.

Power of the Verse
Lilo & Stitch varies considerably in power between Island level and Below Average level, but manages to keep a consistent speed of Subsonic, with the strongest characters in this verse being Stitch, 627, Holio and Leroy. However, the most impressive thing about this verse is its wide array of hax, including Age Manipulation, Empathic Manipulation, Memory Manipulation, Sleep Manipulation and Transmutation, just to name a few. Also of note is that many of these haxes can also bypass conventional durability.
