Disney is continuing to turn their animated classics into live-action flicks. The latest animation to receive such treatment is “Lady and the Tramp”.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “The Lego Ninjago Movie” director Charlie Beam has been selected to turn the Disney animated classic into a live-action remake. But wait, the movie won’t be hitting cinemas. In fact, it’ll be released on the company’s digital streaming service.
Chaz Salembier and Jessica Virtue are overseeing the remake, while Andrew Bujalski wrote the script for new adaption, which Brigham Taylor is producing. “Lady and the Tramp” is essentially about two dogs falling in love and embarking on a romantic adventure. Who can forget the iconic spaghetti dinner scene?
The original animated film’s synopsis reads:
“This Disney animated classic follows a pampered cocker spaniel named Lady whose comfortable life slips away once her owners have a baby. When, after some tense circumstances, Lady finds herself on the loose and out on the street, she is befriended and protected by the tough stray mutt Tramp. A romance begins to blossom between the two dogs, but their many differences, along with more drama at Lady’s household, threaten to keep them apart.”
Aside from “Lady and the Tramp”, the film studio is also releasing other live-action remakes. “Aladdin”, “The Lion King”, “Dumbo” and “Mulan” are some examples.
“Lady and the Tramp” is slated for release in 2019.
