Zach Galifianakis and the alien Pleakley

While not a major character, Pleakley is central to the plot dynamics of the narrative. Pleakley was initially voiced by Kevin MacDonald in his original version and by Mino Caprio in the Italian one. Pleakley is part of the Galactic Federation and did not willingly accept to be alongside Jumba Jookiba as an expert on Earth, yet he found himself forced to fill that role to capture Stitch. This is his role in the animated version and Pleakley is unlikely to be represented otherwise in the live movie.
