Walt Disney Pictures has revealed the first trailer for Lady and the Tramp, the live-action remake of the classic animated film coming to the Disney+ platform. Featuring the titular romantic couple, voiced by Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux.
Lady and the Tramp tells the story of an American Cocker Spaniel named Lady who lives with an upper-middle-class family but is set astray when the family has a baby. Lady ends up meeting a mongrel known as the Tramp on the streets. They embark on a romantic journey and eventually fall 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 and Arturo Castro as Marco.
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 as we have seen in recent Disney adaptations such as Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast.
The upcoming live-action remake is slated to debut on November 12 on Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney+.
