A destructive, genetically engineered extraterrestrial creature escapes captivity and lands on Hawaii where he is adopted by a rebellious young girl who lives with his older sister under the watchful eye of social workers. Disney’s sympathetic 2D animation has a wacky premise, charming characters, and half a dozen classic Elvis songs. The central story about intergalactic friendship is funny and moving.
