Lady and the Tramp is getting a live action reboot!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 1955 animated Disney classic is set to be made into a live action/CG hybrid for Disney’s upcoming digital streaming service.
The remake will be directed by The LEGO Ninjago Movie’s Charlie Bean and produced by Brigham Taylor, who worked on The Jungle Book reboot. Boston filmmaker Andrew Bujalski is writing the script, the outlet reports.
The original film followed a pampered, upper-class cocker spaniel named Lady, who finds herself alone on the street after her owners welcome a baby. She’s then rescued by a stray dog named Tramp, and while the two canines are from different worlds, they quickly bond and enjoy various adventures.
The two also enjoy a romantic dinner featuring the film’s iconic spaghetti kiss.
Disney’s new steaming service will launch in 2019 and feature 4-6 movies a year.
