Walt Disney Pictures has revealed the first poster for Lady and the Tramp, another live-action remake of a classic animated film.
Lady and the Tramp tells the story of an American Cocker Spaniel named Lady who lives with an upper-middle-class family, but her pampered life is upset when the family has a baby. Lady ends up meeting a mongrel known as the Tramp on the streets, embarking on a romantic journey and eventually falling in love.
The film stars Tessa Thompson (Sorry to Bother You, Men In Black) as Lady, Justin Theroux (The Spy Who Dumped Me) as the Tramp, Thomas Mann (Kong: Skull Island) as Jim Dear, Kiersey Clemons (Flatliners) as Jim’s wife Darling, Ashley Jensen (The Lobster, Hysteria) as Jackie the Scottish Terrier, Benedict Wong (Doctor Strange) voicing Bull, an English bulldog, Sam Elliott as the voice of Trusty the Bloodhound, Janelle Monae as the voice of Peg the Pekingese, Yvette Nicole Brown as Aunt Sarah, Adrian Martinez as Elliot, Arturo Castro as Marco, and a canine cast of rescue dogs who found permanent homes when production ended.
Charlie Bean (The LEGO Ninjago Movie, Tron Uprising) will be directing the live-action/CG hybrid film from a script by Andrew Bujalski. Aside from Mann and Clemons, most of the cast will play CGI characters like in recent Disney adaptations such as Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast.
The Lady and the Tramp remake is slated to debut on November 12th on Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney+. This is just the first piece of news that is sure to come out of the D23 Expo, so we’ll keep you posted on all the details.
