According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Lego Ninjago Movie filmmaker Charlie Bean will direct the new adaptation, which is expected to be released on Disney’s upcoming streaming service set to launch in 2019. 

Andrew Bujalski wrote the script, and Jessica Virtue and Chaz Salenbier are overseeing for Disney. 

The film will also feature Ashley Jensen as the Scottish Terrier Jackie, and Doctor Strange actor Benedict Wong will voice English bulldog Bull. Kiersey Clemons will play Darling, the human owner of Lady. 

Lady and the Tramp tells the story of a pampered Cocker Spaniel named Lady who lives with a middle-class family, and her life is turned upside down when her owners have a baby. Lady meets a stray mutt named Tramp on the streets, where they embark on a journey together, and the two dogs ultimately fall in love.

A majority of the cast will play CGI characters, similar to Disney’s live-action remake of Jungle BookVariety reports. 

Thompson is also set to star in the upcoming Men in Black spinoff with fellow Thor: Ragnarok star Chris Hemsworth. She is also currently in theaters with Boots Riley’s Sorry to Bother You.
