Lilo and Nani lost both their parents when their Jaeger (Ohana King) fell in of the Kaijuu attacks.Due to a severe storm hovering over the area where Ohana King was at the time it had gone off the radar and was never found.
Nani was still a child herself when she had to take up the mantle and play both mother and father to Lilo. When given the opportunity to join the corps and train to become Jaeger pilots, Nani agreed if only to have enough money for food and a consistent roof over their heads. A few years after living on base Marshall Cobra Bubbles got word that a rescue team had news on the whereabouts of the wreckage of Ohana King. Upon finding it, they discovered something else, something worse. A remote team was experimenting on live animals with the remains of the Kaijuu DNA. Most of their creations died off, but one survived, a little french bulldog who had curiously turned blue during the experiments. His tongue and eyes sometimes glow and he is super intelligent.
After some extreme begging and persuasive talking Lilo convinced Cobra Bubbles to allow him to stay and named him Stitch. With the official title of a “Therapy Dog” he was able to live with them and became a sort of mascot for Nani’s Jaeger team.
When Lilo got old enough she enlisted as well, and when Nani’s old partner David injured his leg to the point where he had to retire she became her sister’s co-pilot. David still helps by piloting one of the helicopters that bring the Jaegers out of the base. With it’s new jockey’s Ohana King has never operated so smoothly.
So Disney used Pocahontas to try to make up for Peter Pan which is so embarrassingly racist towards natives it’s just not even funny. But they really did Pocahontas a disservice and truly messed up her story to appeal to a white audience—so much so that her tribe dedicates this page to dispelling the myth surrounding Pocahontas, even saying that their attempts to reach out to Disney to help with a more accurate portrayal of her was denied. So next time you wanna harp on about historical accuracy to defend exclusion of pocs in Disney films please just think about Pocahontas.
#man this is so important#because there’s always going to be a few people that white people can hold up saying#’hey this was a great representation!’#BUT IT WASN’T#THIS MOVIE IS RACIST AS FUCK
