Disney has released the first photo of its live-action remake of "Lady and the Tramp." Unlike some of the other "live-action" remakes the studio's been doing lately, this one features real, not CGI, animals.
Tessa Thompson is voicing pampered cocker spaniel Lady and Justin Theroux is the voice of charming mutt Tramp. The movie won't be in theaters, but will debut on Disney+ when it launches on November 12.
Charlie Bean ("The LEGO Ninjago Movie") is directing from a script by Andrew Bujalski ("Support the Girls").
Reaction so far has been mixed, as it's hard to imagine these pups exchanging the same swooning looks as in the 1955 animated film.
And people's enthusiasm for Disney live-action remakes, including Tim Burton's "Dumbo" and the upcoming "Aladdin" has ranged from indifference to "But why?!"
We'll see if they got a real-life beaver to chew through Lady's unwanted muzzle, as in the original.
