Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+, arrives on November 12th, and subscribers can expect plenty of classic and original content once it hits their screens. One of those new titles is Disney’s Lady and the Tramp remake, which debuts with the service.
Lady and the Tramp features the voice talent of Tessa Thompson as Lady, Justin Theroux as Tramp, Benedict Wong as Bull, and the always great Sam Elliot as Trusty. The film is the latest in a series of Disney’s live-action-style adaptations, which also includes Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King. How does Lady and the Tramp stack up? Take a look at the trailer.
Lady and the Tramp trailer:
Critics have been split on Disney’s recent slate of remakes, but these new entries in Disney’s canon have won over fans and demolished their box office competition. So it’s a baller move for Disney to go ahead and drop their next potential hit on their brand new streaming service. I can’t wait to see the impact of Disney’s entry into the streaming wars. Will Disney+ be just another streaming service adding to our current backlogs or essential viewing? Let us know on Twitter at @ThatShelf and @VictorJStiff.
Lady and the Tramp synopsis:
In Disney+’s “Lady and the Tramp,” a timeless re-telling of the 1955 animated classic, a pampered house dog and a tough but lovable stray embark on an unexpected adventure and, despite their differences, grow closer and come to understand the value of home. Life is good for Lady, an overachieving American Cocker Spaniel who resides in an upscale suburban neighborhood. Her owners, Jim Dear and Darling, spoil her daily and her neighbors, Jock, an outspoken Scottish Terrier and Trusty, a world-weary Bloodhound, are always within barking distance. But when a baby enters the picture, Lady is no longer the center of attention, and the arrival of cat-loving Aunt Sarah only complicates matters. Lady soon finds herself alone on the streets in an unwelcoming part of town. Fortunately, Tramp steps in, and the streetwise mongrel is quick to teach her the ways of the world. Before long, the prim and proper pure bred and the fast-talking mutt are partaking in moonlight strolls in the park and romantic spaghetti dinners by candlelight. Tramp savors the independence of a world without leashes or fences alongside his roguish friends Peg and Bull, but Lady misses the comfort and safety of a family, and soon both must decide where – and with whom – they belong.
Lady and the Tramp premieres on November 12, 2019, streaming only on Disney+.
