Arguably one of the most underrated children’s movies of all time, Lilo and Stitch is a fantastically written and well-done animated Disney film about a sweet, outcast Hawaiian girl who adopts a strange-looking dog – that turns out to actually be an alien named Stitch. Discovering who she is as well as trying to protect her new friend from the “space police,” Lilo’s constant optimistic outlook on life is a perfect example of everything Disney wants in a main character.

With music, real-life lessons, and comedy, this is a movie perfect for the entire family and tells a story in a way that keeps everyone interested. While you might be a bit confused why this is the highest Disney animated film on this list with so many classics on the streaming site, you should remember that just because it’s a classic does not make it a good movie.

I can all but guarantee that kids will like this movie – and, who knows, you probably will too.
