Disney is remaking the 1955 classic movie, The Lady and The Tramp. Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux will be the voice of the canine couple. The 1955 classic will include human cast and real canines.

Singer-actress Janelle Monae will be playing the voice of Peg the Pekingese, a close friend of the lady, who is voiced by Tessa Thompson. Ironically these two ladies are very close in real life.


However, there is a new twist to the 1955 animated classic. Director Charlie Bean is remixing the live action/ CG hybrid version of the film about a middle class American Cocker Spaniel meeting a street stray canine from downtown, who she falls in love with. The script is corresponding with today's generation. The film is set to be released this year on Disney's streaming service.
