Disney Plus has released a trailer and poster for its live-action Lady and the Tramp. A remake of Disney's 1955 animated classic (itself loosely based on Ward Greene's novel, Happy Dan, The Cynical Dog), the movie features Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux as the voices of the titular canine lovebirds. However, unlike the animals in other recent Disney retellings, the dogs in Lady and the Tramp are played by real pups, with Thomas Mann, Kiersey Clemons, and Yvette Nicole Brown bringing the story's humans to life.
Written by Andrew Bujalski (Computer Chess) and directed by Charlie Bean (The LEGO Ninjago Movie), Lady and the Tramp will become available for streaming when Disney Plus launches this fall on Tuesday, November 12. The film was included as part of the streamer's presentation at D23 today, along with the other TV shows and movies set to premiere on the service's launch date. Its first-look footage has since made its way online, after the one-sheet dropped this morning.
The Lady and the Tramp poster recreates the iconic romantic dinner from the animated film (which unfolds to the tune of "Bella Notte"), while also giving its furry stars a pair of not-so-convincing CGI eyes (hopefully, for the promotional material only). You can check it out below, after the trailer.
