Lilo & Stitch is a Disney modern classic—a 2002 movie that spawned sequels and a TV series about the young girl and the lovable blue alien she adopts as a pet.
The Hawaii-set movie introduces the pair along with Lilo’s older sister, Nani, who is raising her after their parents died in a car accident.
While all that may sound familiar to Disney fans, one scene they may not remember is a game of hide-and-seek played by Lilo and Nani. The elder sister feigns leaving the room but instead climbs on top of a clothes dryer—and scoops up her sister as she sneaks out of the machine.
You won’t find this scene if you watch the movie tonight on Disney+, however. Instead, Lilo hides in a cupboard that has a pizza box for a door.
Disney fan Corinne Is In recently shared a clip showing the original version of the scene on TikTok. Her video, which has amassed more than 4 million views, can be seen here.
She said in her clip: “Someone has clearly been editing Lilo & Stitch, because this is the version of Lilo & Stitch I have, where she clearly hides in a dryer.
“She is not in a cabinet with a pizza box on it. So I think someone’s done some clever editing.”
After posting the video, she was inundated with comments saying it had been Disney itself that had altered the footage.
She has since posted follow-up clips: one showing the updated version of the scene with the cabinet and another showing them both side-by-side.
Sharing the tweaked footage, she said: “So, this is apparently the Disney+ version, which they recreated, I guess, so that kids wouldn’t put themselves in clothes dryers. Yeah, apparently this is a thing, guys.”
As she compared the two versions, Corinne said: “I am stunned that they went from this to this, because people, I don’t know, kids are going into dryers? Are parents not watching their kids?”
Another TikToker, Dude McShredy, shared her footage with the caption: “New vs old.”
This clip, posted a few days later, has amassed a whopping 36 million views on the site and can be seen here.
In the comments, Dude McShredy explained: “So to everyone out there that hasn’t looked into it, Disney changed to the pizza shortly after the first DVD release.”
