    Disney's Live-Action 'Lady and the Tramp' movie to be exclusiving streamed

    By Koby,

    wjKiPlv.jpgCharlie Bean, who directed The Lego Ninjago Movie, is going to the dogs. Bean has closed a deal to helm the live-action/CG hybrid remake of Disney’s animated classic Lady and the Tramp.


    Brigham Taylor, who worked on the studio’s remake of The Jungle Book, is producing the project, which is looking to be made for Disney’s digital streaming service that will launch in 2019.


    The service will have four to six movies a year among content that will include film and TV offerings from Disney brands Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars. The fact that a remake of such a marquee and essential Disney title such as Lady and the Tramp will likely head to the service is another example of how serious the company is taking its streaming platform’s content. (Disney also recently hired Jon Favreau to write and executive produce a live-action Star Wars television series.)


    Lady and the Tramp, released in 1955, told the love story between a pampered Cocker Spaniel named Lady and a streetwise mongrel named Tramp. Lady finds herself out on the street after her owners have a baby and is saved from a pack by Tramp, who tries to show her how to live her life footloose and collar-free. More doggone adventures ensue. The centerpiece of the movie is the candlelit spaghetti dinner in an alley while two human cooks sing and play "Bella Notte," considered one of the most iconic scenes in Disney and movie history.


    Andrew Bujalski penned the script for the remake. Jessica Virtue and Chaz Salembier are overseeing for Disney.


    Bean is a longtime animator who has written on Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack and directed 18 out of the 19 episodes of Disney XD’s Tron: Uprising before making his feature debut with Ninjago. Lady and the Tramp now trampolines the helmer into the live-action world while still keeping him tethered to animation.

    Sentai Filmworks describes the story:

       "At first glance, high school sweethearts Hanabi Yasuraoka and Mugi Awaya appear to have the perfect relationship and while the two enjoy each other's physical companionship, they are merely using each other to feel anything other than pain as both Hanabi and Mugi are in love with other people. As this tangled web of emotions continues to ensnare others, viewers are exposed to the painful side of love, making this series often difficult to watch yet impossible to look away."

    Sentai Filmworks will release the Scum's WishComplete Collection on Blu-ray Disc on September 25.



    First time making a thread for something and I put it in the wrong place.
