I’ve made no secret of my mild annoyance of Disney rolling out a steady stream of reboots, remakes, and sequels over the past few years. And I was really skeptical when I heard that a live-action remake of Lady of the Tramp was in the works for their upcoming streaming service, Disney+.
But ‘dog’-gone it, if this doesn’t look like an adorable movie.
Disney just released a trailer for a new Lady and the Tramp, starring Justin Theroux as the “no-count pup” “Tramp”, and Tessa Thompson as the pampered “Lady”.
What I love about this movie (already) is that the dog who plays Tramp is a rescued dog!! He’s a two-year old shelter dog turned movie star named Monte from Arizona.
Celebrity dog in our midst! Monte was adopted last year from HALO & originally came from Las Cruces, NM. Monte will be starring as "Tramp" in the new live action Disney movie according to this @People Exclusive https://t.co/d1LgLx9R0H #HALO25yrs #HelpingAnimalsLiveOn pic.twitter.com/u6kaBhgkJM
