Sitch Encounter is based on the Disney animation Lilo & Stitch. Similar in style to the Turtle Talk with Crush attractions at Disney California Adventure and Epcot, it sees audience members interacting in real-time with an on-screen recreation of Stitch. The backstory involves guests connecting to Stitch’s spacecraft via a satellite link-up, but this is very much secondary to the conversation between audience members and the mischievous alien.
A hidden Cast Member supplies the voice for Stitch, with the character’s facial expressions and mouth movements being synchronised automatically. The interaction is primarily with children, who are encouraged to sit at the front of the theatre. Eventually, the audience is asked to help stitch escape from Captain Gantlus.
