Disney has just released a glimpse into the furry cast for the upcoming live-action remake of the cartoon animated classic Lady and the Tramp written on the book Happy Dan, The Cynical Dog based by Ward Greene .
The film is the latest in a long line of Disney re-imaginations of classic childhood favorites. Following the box-office success of Maleficent Beauty and the Beast and Alice in Wonderland Disney got rolling and produced a live-action remake after action-remake. An official trailer for the movie has not been released yet, but here's what we know about the live action remake Lady and the Tramp .
& Lady & the Tramp & # 39; s; Will Show Real Animals
Lady and the Tramp is a retelling of the classic animated story of 1955, in which a classy cocker spaniel named Lady falls in love with a loose-eared street-killer named Tramp.
Unlike Disney's live-action remake of The Lion King, Lady and the Vagabond there will be a predominantly four-legged, furry cast without CGI. The remake will really be a live action, using real animal actors. Think On the way home: the incredible journey.
In April, Disney released pictures of Rose and Monte, the two leading dogs that will perform as lady and tramp, respectively. Monte was rescued from a kill shelter in New Mexico.
The main characters are voiced by Tessa Thompson from Thor: Ragnarok from and Justin Theroux from The Leftovers from . On August 8, Disney posted on Twitter pics of all the cast members, notably Trusty, Jock, Peg, and Bull. This announcement accompanied the news of the addition of voice actors Sam Elliot, Ashley Jensen, Janelle Monáe, and Benedict Wong.
Based on these announcements, it seems that the only change to the classic story is that Jock is exchanged and played by sex with Jensen.
The film is released on the new streaming service Disney.
Lady and the Tramp is the first live action remake on Disney's new Disney streaming service. The service will start in early November with 300 films and 7,000 television programs.
The streaming service will include the collection of animated and live action classics from the studio, as well as new original content, such as: For example, new shows from franchises Marvel and Star Wars. . There will also be episodes of National Geographic and a series of Pixar films. Following Disney's recent acquisition of Fox, the studio announced a reboot of four major Fox franchises: Night at the Museum, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Home Alone.
Live action provoking a bad reaction
Unfortunately, Lady and the Tramp is released at a difficult point for Disney's line of live-action remakes. Fans begin to dismiss Disney's adaptations as a rip off of the original animated classics. Considering the poor recording of Disney's Lion King and Dumbo many wonder whether or not Lady and the Tramp are received with the same criticism or win a favor by showing an actual animal occupation.
Disney + will be released on November 12th. Lady and the Tramp is one of the first feature films to be released in the streaming service.
