Disney’s live-action adaptations of their animated classics have been enormous box office hits, so far. But now it is time to see how they will fare on the streaming front.
Their new take on Lady and the Tramp will be the first of those tests, as it is set to premiere on Disney+ in November. And with the service set to launch less than a month from now, the studio has released a brand new trailer. Check it out below.
Walt Disney Studios may have found huge success with its live-action adaptations of their animated classics through theatrical releases, but they have reserved a few special titles for Disney+, their exclusive streaming service. One of those new titles will be a retelling of Lady and The Tramp.
We got a first-hand look at the film at the D23 Expo on Friday in the form of the first trailer, which demonstrates that the new live-action version promises to be just as adorable as it is romantic. Check out the first trailer here below, which was introduced at the convention by its canine stars Rose (“Lady”) and Monty (“Tramp”) and their human co-star Yvette Nicole Brown, who also hosted the panel.
Disney will be entering the streaming service competition by launching Disney+ later this year. While we can expect to see all sorts of content under the studio’s umbrella, which consists of Disney, Lucasfilm, Marvel Studios, and Pixar, it wasn’t clear how much money was being put into it.
Now new reports say that the studio is spending somewhere north of $500 million on original television shows like The Mandalorian and films like Lady and the Tramp. More on this below.
Now that we’ve seen what Disney can do to make lifelike CG animals in the live-action adaptations of their animated films, the studio is taking a rather unconventional step to making their formerly hand-drawn animated animal characters look alive. They will be using real lives ones.
There has been confirmation that director Charlie Bean (The LEGO Ninjago Movie) will be using real, live dogs for the live-action reimagining of Lady and the Tramp. More on the report below.
Summer is creeping around the corner. Now represents the perfect period to catch up on old movies or those you may have missed. Disney dog-themed movies exist in abundance. What better way to deal with those impending “dog days of summer” than to revisit some classic canine fare, or perhaps catch them for the very first time.
Here are five of my favorites that make me shout “bow wow,” organized according to theme. And no, none of the Air Buddies or Beverly Hills Chihuahua films reach even close to making the cut.
