The list of Disney’s live-action remakes grows ever longer as Lady and the Tramp comes to Disney+ when the service launches on November 12th. While films such as Aladdin, and most recently The Lion King have been financially successful at the box office, this will be the first live-action classic to debut on streaming service. Disney also plans on releasing live-action versions of The Sword in the Stone and Peter Pan on the platform.
Lady and the Tramp was originally scheduled to be released in theaters; however, in an attempt to encourage more people to sign up for Disney+, it was determined that the film would be released on the new streaming service. After seeing the trailer though, I think that may have been a wise decision because, while I may be in the minority, something doesn’t seem quite right with the “live-action” animation. I’m not sure that I want to pay to sit through the entire movie knowing that I’ll be distracted by the CGI.
Lady and the Tramp stars Tessa Thompson as Lady and Justin Theroux as Tramp. They are joined by Sam Elliott as Trusty, Ashley Jensen as Jock, Benedict Wong as Bull, Janelle Monáe as Peg, Kiersey Clemons as Darling Dear, Thomas Mann as Jim Dear, Yvette Nicole Brown as Aunt Sarah, Arian Martinez as Elliot, and Arturo Castro as Marco.
