Disney will be bringing back the 'Lady and the Tramp' as a live-action remake of the 1955 animated classic, based on the book 'Happy Dan, The Cynical Dog' by Ward Greene. It is set to be released exclusively on November 2019 on Disney+, making it the first remake to not receive a theatrical release. Ahead of the movie's release, here's what we know so far.
'Lady and the Tramp' will be releasing on November 12 on Disney +
'Lady and the Tramp' tells 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 storyline is pretty much the same as the animated classic. Expect ample CGI and live-action re-imagining in the storyline. Disney released the first official trailer of the live-action remake 'Lady and the Tramp' at the D23 Expo.
Tessa Thompson ('Avengers: Endgame') plays the lovable Lady, while Justin Theroux ('The Spy who Dumped Me') voices the Tramp. Yvette Nicole Brown ('Drake and Josh') comes in as Aunt Sarah, Adrian Martinez ('Discount Double Check') as Elliot, a dog-catcher, Arturo Castro as Marco, Ken Jeong and F. Murray Abraham round up the rest of the cast.
Charlie Bean ('Tron: Uprising') will helm the film. Andrew Bujalski ('Hannah Takes the Stairs') and Kari Granlund come in for the screenplay and will be produced by Brigham Taylor ('The Jungle Book').
The trailer for the live-action movie has many moments from the original movie, and it's scored by a rendition of "Bella Notte" with a female singer. As reported by Screenrant, the song's title is Italian, meaning "Beautiful Night," and it's sung by a friendly chef called Tony during the film's iconic spaghetti-and-meatballs dinner scene. The song was composed by Sonny Burke, with lyrics by Peggy Lee, and was performed by George Givot in the 1955 movie.
As reported by Verge, it was originally set to be released in theaters, but Disney changed its strategy to encourage more people to sign up for Disney+. 'Lady and the Tramp' is the studio’s first major release to get the treatment.
