  • Nani Nani Kids – PRESERVING THE CREATIVE KID WITHIN
  • Our Mission – Nani Nani Kids



In 2002, Disney gave us one of its most unique movies ever, Lilo and Stitch . It’s about a young girl in present-day Hawaii who rediscovers the meaning of family by befriending a small but very powerful alien terrorist…more or less. Yeah, it’s out there. But it’s absolutely one of Disney’s most special and meaningful films.

I could write a whole lot about the main characters–Lilo (the young girl) and Stitch (the alien)–but today my focus is on Nani, Lilo’s older sister and guardian.

We piece together Nani’s backstory as the movie goes along. She is a native Hawaiian, maybe lower middle class, and the only family that her sister has left. Her parents have recently died in a car accident, leaving her to care for her much younger sister on her own. She is nineteen years old at the time of this movie. Almost nothing about her life before the accident is mentioned. In fact, what little I know is actually just speculation based on what I’ve seen in their house.

Nani Pelekai is the tritagonist of the Lilo & Stitch franchise. She is the older sister and legal guardian of Lilo .

Nani's the older sister of Lilo Pelekai , and after Nani and Lilo's parents were unexpectedly killed in a car accident one night during a storm, Nani, as Lilo's closest living relative, was appointed as her legal guardian. In the movie, Nani is said to be nineteen and Lilo is said to be six, making them at least thirteen years apart in age.

Two things that Nani is known for are her inability to hold down a full-time job, partly due to the antics of her sister and Stitch, and for being a terrible cook, although she excels greatly in math and chemistry.
