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.
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.

Debuting in 2016 on Disney Junior, Elena Of Avalor spun off from the popular animated series Sofia the First to become Disney’s first Latin American princess. Combining multiple Latin American cultures, Elena is one of the most popular shows on Disney television, and one of my daughter’s favorites. She sat with me while we watched the new DVD Elena Of Avalor: Realm Of Jaquins. The DVD features 4 episodes of the series along with plenty of special features your kids will enjoy.
Fans of the hit sitcom Community were pretty bummed out when the show was canceled recently after five seasons, significantly damaging hope for “six seasons and a movie.”
But these days being canceled isn’t necessarily a death sentence. With the rise of streaming media, other options exist. The hope that a company like Netflix or Hulu or Amazon will resurrect a dead series for their streaming service means faithful fans always have a little spark of hope.
For Community, that hope is now a reality. The comedy is indeed getting a season six after all, but its savior might not be who you were expecting.
