There has always been a connection between Hawaii and Disney. The Stitch Minifigure from the First Disney Minifigure series, as well as from the movie Lilo & Stitch is based in Hawaii, and has lots of references to the islands. Even Elvis is represented throughout the movie (Elvis made 3 movies in Hawaii). Stitch, however is an alien who is adopted by Lilo as her pet dog, and is treated as family.
The Stitch Minifigure from the LEGO Disney Series 1 appears in these sets:

Stitch, who’s real name is Experiment 626 is an illegally-made, genetically-engineered, extraterrestrial life form resembling a blue koala who was designed to cause trouble in the galaxy. He has a limited ability to change his physical appearance, as he can retract his lower set of arms, his claws, his antennae and the three spines on his back into his body.
- Lilo can be translated and means “Generous One” or an alternate translation is “Lost”.
- Many of the animated locations in the movie can be recognized as real places in Hawaii.
