Leroy & Stitch (2006) is the Grand Finale movie of Lilo & Stitch: The Series, and is the last movie in the Lilo & Stitch franchise.Having captured all six-hundred and twenty-five experiments, Lilo and the gang are rewarded by the Grand Councilwoman for their good work. Jumba gets the key to his old lab, Pleakley gets a post as head of Earth Studies at the Galactic Alliance Community College, Stitch is granted a commission as a captain of the armada, and Lilo becomes ambassador between Earth and the Galactic Federation. However, this means they will have to split up, and after a sad goodbye, they go their separate ways.However, Hamsterviel has once again escaped, and he seeks to wrest control of the Federation, with the forced help of Jumba and his newly-running laboratory.
Brilliant but Lazy: Reuben, who up until now has spent the series making sandwiches and wisecracking at Gantu, gets a Crowning Moment of Awesome when he successful repairs Gantu's crashed ship, something Gantu had been unable to do all series.
Chekhov's Armoury: Lilo's departing gifts to Stitch, Pleakley and Jumba. Stitch's gift was a tiki necklace which allowed Lilo to identify Leroy as an imposter because he wasn't wearing it. Next was a rock given to Pleakley that was used to disrupt the event horizon of a black hole that he, Stitch and Jumba were hurtling into and allow them to escape. Finally there was the Aloha 'Oe record given to Jumba which he used to create a secret mechanism in Leroy that made him shut down if he (or his clones) heard it. This ends up leading to both a Crowning Moment and a Crowning Music of Awesome the end where Stitch, Lilo, 625 Reuben and a bunch of Stitch's cousins put on a concert to defeat the Leroy clone army at the end.
At one point during his battle with Stitch, Leroy is smushed under a pile of wreckage. His emergence from the rubble is very similar to Stitch's in the first movie.
The frog from the first movie makes an appearance in a scene.
While Leroy is scouting Lilo's room, he pulls out a bunch of books from Lilo's bookstand, looks at them and chucks them away, much like Stitch in the first movie. One of the books that catches his attention is The Log Book (a book about logs) which Stitch also looks through in the first movie.
He also steals a can from the fridge, like Nani catches Stitch doing in the first movie.
Leroy steals the experiment photo album Lilo was compiling in the last episode of the series.
Hamsterviel uses a pile of books to make himself look taller, just as he does in Stitch! The Movie.
At the beginning of 'Aloha 'Oe', Stitch breaks one of his guitar strings.
Continuity Cavalcade: Almost every experiment from the previous series gets a scene, usually in one of three sequences in the film: at the beginning of the movie as Jumba's ship takes off, shown in their new lives before being captured by Leroy, or in the battle with the Leroy clones.
Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Hämsterviel is dumb enough to tell Gantu that he'll be fired as soon as he's finished locking up Lilo and Reuben. Naturally, Gantu decides that he's got nothing to lose, and releases them.
Actually an inversion, believe it or not - if Leroy hears the song, he shuts off, a switch that also applies to his clones. Naturally, Lilo, Stitch, and co. perform a rockin' concert to accomplish this. So it's really more of a Theme Music Power Down for the villains.
