Stitch moves to Okinawa

I only just learned about this. Following Cartoon Network Studios' lead of teaming up with a Japanese studio to create an anime re-imagining of Powerpuff Girls a couple years ago, Disney has announced it has teamed up with Japanese studio Madhouse to create an anime series featuring Stitch in Okinawa with a local girl named Hanako.

The first formal presentation about this new series is supposed to happen at next weekend's Tokyo International Anime Fair (which is also where Powerpuff Girls Z had been announced, you may recall).

Must remember to keep eyes peeled for any pictures coming out of Japan next weekend... (let me know if you find any!)

The series should begin in October of this year.
