Lady and the Tramp

In 2019, romance has gone to the dogs!


Global – Disney’s not slowing down with the remakes of their animated films. The latest classic Disney movie to get this live-action treatment is Lady and the Tramp, but unlike The Lion King, Aladdin, and Dumbo, the film will exclusively debut on Disney’s streaming service Disney Plus this November.

Lady and the Tramp is set to tell the story of “an upper-middle-class American cocker spaniel named Lady (voiced by Tessa Thompson) who meets a streetsmart, downtown stray Schnauzer called the Tramp (voiced by Justin Theroux), and the two embark on many romantic adventures including that iconic spaghetti smooch scene.

The film is a live-action adaptation of Walt Disney’s 1955 animated film of the same name, which was based on the Cosmopolitan magazine story of “Happy Dan, The Cynical Dog” by Ward Greene.

Unlike the remake of The Lion King, which was rendered entirely in CG, Lady and the Tramp makes use of real-life pups and it has also been rumoured that the canine cast of rescue dogs that were used in the film found “forever homes” when production ended.

The new film is scheduled to be released on November 12, 2019, exclusively on Disney+, the new subscription video-on-demand service owned and operated by The Walt Disney Company.

Also coming to Disney+ when it launches is “The Mandalorian,” the first-ever live-action “Star Wars” series, which will introduce a new caravan of characters in this story, set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order.

The service will compete with other video streaming subscription services such as Netflix, Apple TV+, and Amazon Prime Video and will complement ESPN+ and Hulu as part of Disney’s over-the-top strategy.
