Nani Appreciation Post
Can we please give Nani a round of applause?
Nani is Lilo’s very beautiful big sister who was appointed as Lilo’s sole guardian after the death of their parents who were killed in a car accident. She is said to be 19 years old in the first film. As a result of having to support herself and Lilo, she is often stressed and busy. Her busyness often interferes with her friendship with David, who later serves as her love interest. She does care deeply for Lilo and fears losing her to social workers like Cobra Bubbles. Nani does everything in her power to try and make things work so her and Lilo can stay together. She often struggles between being a big sister and a parent but makes the best out of her situation.
Ladies and gentlemen, she puts her relationship with David to the side because Lilo was more important to her. A guy she really, really likes because she knows she needs to focus on Lilo. She tries to hide her fears and worries as much as she can when she’s around Lilo to be strong for her. She buys Lilo a pet to give her company when she finds out that Lilo has no friends and that she gets bullied. When Stitch causes Nani to lose her job, she tells Lilo that it wasn’t her (& Stitch’s) fault so she doesn’t feel bad. Nani is constantly trying to boost Lilo’s self-esteem. She’s just an amazing person and when she finds out that Lilo was taken away, she’s devastated. She gets down on the ground and starts bawling. Lilo was her life. She put Lilo before herself and everything she ever did was around Lilo and for Lilo. All Nani wants is for Lilo to have the best life she can have and to Nani, that’s all she wants out of her life is to see her sister happy. She’s that selfless. That my friends, is a true hero. Nani is a princess to me.
