Dal sito Collider:

Exclusive: Disney’s Live-Action ‘Lady and the Tramp’ Will Use Real Dogs

There’s been a bit of debate over Disney’s “live-action” remakes recently concerning whether they actually are, in truth, live-action. The first few undoubtedly were—Cinderella, Pete’s Dragon, and of course Maleficent. But then Jon Favreau’s visually stunning The Jungle Book blurred the lines, with the young actor playing Mowgli serving as the film’s only true live-action element. And with The Lion King on the horizon, which features absolutely no humans and a ton of photoreal visual effects, it’s hard to say it actually is a live-action film.

So you’d be forgiven for assuming that Disney’s upcoming Lady and the Tramp remake might be treading similar territory. As it turns out, not only are there human actors in the film, but the titular pooches are being portrayed by real-life dogs. Collider’s own Christina Radish recently spoke with actor Thomas Mann about his new film Maine, and during the course of their conversation, Mann offered some tantalizing teases about Lady and the Tramp.

In addition to confirming a period setting, Mann said they’re using real live dogs in the movie. Now, it’s unclear if these dogs will be partially replaced in post-production or if visual effects will simply be applied to their mouths so they can speak, but it is heartening to know the film appears to be leaning towards a heavy live-action element during production.

Lady and the Tramp is poised to debut exclusively on Disney’s streaming service Disney+ and is currently in production with director Charlie Bean (The LEGO Ninjago Movie). Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux provide the voices of the titular leads.

Check out what Mann had to say about Disney’s live-action Lady and the Tramp remake during his conversation with Collider below, and look for our full interview with the actor on Collider soon.

Collider: You went from doing something so sparse like Maine, to doing something like Lady and the Tramp. What’s it like to be on a set when you are one of the only human characters?

THOMAS MANN: Thank you for asking about that because it is very strange. Obviously, Lady and the Tramp is a little more comedic, for my character, at least. I get to be little more broad because of its period. That was actually something that was very, very different for me, whereas Maine is a character that’s the closest to myself that I’ve ever played.

There is such an interesting trend with these Disney classics, like Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo, The Lion King and now Lady and the Tramp, where we’re getting to see them in a different way. What most excites you about the way that you’re telling the story of Lady and the Tramp?

MANN: I really think it’s an enhanced version of the world that you saw before. Obviously, the human characters are a little more flushed out. They’re not these passing faces that you barely get a glimpse of. You get to know them a little bit better. And also, there are real dogs. Who doesn’t want to see two real dogs kiss over a plate of spaghetti? That is the main draw for me. You get the charisma of real dogs in there. Lady and the Tramp came out in 1955. I understand people who are like, “Don’t mess with the original,” but they aren’t re-animating it. It’s a live-action remake. So, why not?

Did you actually get to act with dogs, or were they not there?

MANN: The dogs were there. We shot with the dogs, every day. They were on set and they weren’t even trained. They found these dogs and started training them about three months before. They just wanted to find the perfect dogs. The main dog’s name was Rose, who played Lady. It was crazy because they didn’t know they were working, so they would run off in the middle of a take, and then come back over. You have to be extra patient because you have to be good every time for when they are good once. It was a lot of fun. It was so cute, every day, to just have a bunch of dogs to play with. It made the job a lot less stressful.

I’m excited about it because I love that story, but I also think it will be really interesting to see what’s done with it because it does feel like there are so many possibilities.

MANN: It’s a little more dramatic, too. I wouldn’t say that it’s a full-on drama or anything, but it’s a little more grown up, in its own way, and a little more sophisticated. It looks beautiful, in the few things that I’ve seen, from the way it was shot. The production design, alone, is pretty immaculate.

That’s so cool! I cried with the Dumbo trailer, so I’m excited to see what Lady and the Tramp looks like, as well.

MANN: Just wait! It will be amazing! These dogs are movie stars.

Dal sito Variety:

‘Lady and the Tramp’ Will Reinvent Problematic Siamese Cat Song, Feature New Music From Janelle Monae (EXCLUSIVE)

Grammy winner Janelle Monae will contribute new music to the Disney Plus streaming title “Lady and the Tramp,” in addition to her voice role in the live-action reboot.

Monae will perform two original songs for the film, led by Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux. Monae’s artist collective Wondaland is also “reinventing” a track from the original 1955 animated movie, individuals close to the project said.

That would be “The Siamese Cat Song,” originally recorded by Peggy Lee for the feline duo Si and Am in the animated version. Those characters and their famous refrain — “We are Siamese if you please / We are Siamese if you don’t please” — have long been considered a cringe-worthy depiction of Asian culture.

Wondaland contributors Nate “Rocket” Wonder and Roman GianArthur are working on a different take for the pair, who in the new film are not Siamese cats, the insiders added. Walt Disney Studios confirmed Monae’s musical involvement, as did a rep for the singer.

“We’re dealing with Wondaland, her team of incredibly creative writers and producers that she works with. So our director has engaged with her in terms of what the storytelling [of] the song needs to be,” Kaylin Frank, a vice president in Creative Music and Soundtracks at Disney, said at the recent MUSEXPO Creative Summit in Burbank, Calif.

Frank reassured the conference that while the film is set in 1910 and has a blues-ragtime vibe, Monae’s personal sound will be represented. There’s also a possibility Wondaland will do a pass on the film’s signature song “He’s A Tramp,” another individual added.

In a 2013 analysis of the cat song at culture blog Flavorwire, one author found the depiction of Si and Am a result of a post WWII anxiety America had about the foreign “other,” saying they came to represent a duplicitous and seductive team with shady motives.

“They have no individuality; their innocent blue eyes bend into a sinister glare as they cave at the slant. They are jaundiced and sly; sick and feral; domesticated, though nevertheless propelled by their mischievous, impish nature to deceive and intimidate,” wrote author Marcus Hunter, who called them a “colonist nightmare.”

A retooling of the cat song would not be the first upgrade Disney has given to an animated classic seeing live-action translation. Who among us will soon forget the noise around the “exclusively gay” moment director Bill Condon added to Emma Watson’s “Beauty and the Beast” — in service of Josh Gad’s character Le Fou, who in that original animation pined for the beefy alpha male Gaston with no clear motivation.

Upcoming live-action takes like “Aladdin” and “Mulan” will also accurately represent the racial makeup of their respective characters.

The OTT service Disney Plus is expected to launch in mid-November, and “Lady” soon after.

First Look: See the Canine Cast Starring in the Live-Action Lady and the Tramp Remake

The live-action Lady and the Tramp remake, which is available Nov. 12 only on Disney+, features rescue dogs voiced by human celebrities

The Lion King remake was stunning, but now it’s time to give the dogs the spotlight!

Disney is releasing a live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp — the 1955 film all about true puppy love. The new take on the animated classic will premiere Nov. 12, only on Disney’s new streaming service Disney+.

PEOPLE has a first look at the real life rescue dogs that make up this new film’s cuddly cast and the celebrities who are giving these canines a voice.

Get a peek at what your favorite Lady and the Tramp pooch looks like in real life, and the star who will bring them to life, ahead of the remake’s November premiere by reading on below.

Justin Theroux as Tramp

In the upcoming film, Tramp is played by a rescue dog with soulful eyes named Monte and is voiced by animal lover Theroux, who is a proud pet parent to his own rescue Kuma. Monte was rescued from a kill-shelter in New Mexico by Halo Animal Rescue and then transferred to a shelter in Phoenix, where he was adopted by on of the film’s animal trainers, Mark Forbes.

Tessa Thompson as Lady

Thompson will be lending her voice to the other half of this famous canine couple. Lady herself with be portrayed in the remake by a talented Cocker Spaniel named Rose.

Sam Elliott as Trusty

Elliott will use his famous drawl to bring Trusty — the wise bloodhound with a lost sense of smell — to life in this new take on Lady and the Tramp.

Janelle Monáe as Peg

The fluffy pooch, who is famous for crooning “He’s a Tramp” in the 1955 film, will get her pipes from 33-year-old Monáe in the 2019 remake.

Ashley Jensen as Jock

Scottish actress Jensen has the perfect accent to voice the live-action movie’s eccentric Scottish terrier.

Benedict Wong as Bull

Wong will be the voice behind Tramp’s bulldog buddy aptly named Bull.

Trailer davvero molto ma molto molto bello e ben fatto!
Come grafica e stile è molto ben fatto, soprattutto per essere un film tv. Non ci aspettavamo questa qualità. Ha anche uno stile d'antan che funziona.
Ci piace molto

Guardate che belli i due cani sul red carpet del D23:

Mi spiace, ma appena i cani iniziano a parlare muovendo la bocca, per me perde ogni appeal e credibilità. sad.gif Fa un po' Beverly Hills Chihuahua.
Peccato perché l'atmosfera non era niente male. Avrei preferito, a parte l'inesistenza di prodotti come questo, che i cani parlassero "col pensiero" o che addirittura non parlassero.

Il film sembra proprio un bel gioiellino per quel che mi riguarda. Davvero curioso sulla distribuzione italiana, mi auguro che Disney+ apra all'Italia il più presto possibile, altrimenti questi film novità si bruceranno con lo streaming illegale.

Il trailer è proprio bello! ha un'atmosfera davvero ben fatta. Speriamo che Disney + continui con produzioni come questa (crediamo che Peter Pan e La Spada nella Roccia siano in buone mani... e chissà, magari un giorno anche film su cui c'è maggior rischio, come Pocahontas e La Principessa e il Ranocchio...)

Da Inside the Magic

Why didn’t Disney release ‘Lady and the Tramp’ at the box office?

The upcoming live-action release of Disney’s Lady and the Tramp will vary from other live-action remakes. Not only is the reimagined version keeping very close to the original storyline of the 1955 classic, but this particular live-action film is the first of the remakes to debut exclusively on the new Disney+ streaming platform, rather than at the box office.

Why would Disney make such a decision?

By most accounts, an Academy Award nomination and an Oscar win are the tell-tale signs of a great film. But the Academy has very specific requirements that must be met in order for a film to be nominated. One of those requirements implicitly states that the film cannot have its premiere outside of a theatrical run. An initial film screening on television or online renders a film ineligible for nomination.

Therefore, the release of Lady and the Tramp via Disney+ on November 12 will immediately disqualify the film for any Oscar nominations. Ever.

Again, why would Disney make such a decision?

Before we dive into the why it’s important to note that Disney did not make the decision flippantly. On the contrary, the move to debut the new film on Disney+ was done calculatedly—the old “method to the madness” adage applies here. And we don’t have to tell you that the move was motivated by the almighty dollar. But the way in which that dollar will be earned when it comes to the live-action version of Lady and the Tramp differs from the way in which films earn millions at the box office.

And that’s exactly what Disney is banking on.

Lady and the Tramp will help to usher in a new form of distribution—Disney+ serving as that new distribution powerhouse—and not the other way around. It’s the first original movie to premiere on the streaming platform. At the outset, it seems that a box office premiere would be far more lucrative than a Disney+ premiere, and that might be true if we’re looking solely at earnings based on the film’s performance. The success of Lady and the Tramp will lend itself to the overall success of the new streaming platform, thus potentially being more successful in the long run than a theatrical release might have been.

But Disney is “betting the farm” on its new streaming service, as the entertainment giant understands that to maintain its competitive edge, it must go in the direction of streaming because streaming is the way of the future. In much the same way kids of today’s generation have no idea what a VCR or VHS tape is, it’s highly likely that the next generation will have little to no concept of a DVD or Blu-Ray. As streaming services become more popular, the need for DVDs will become less popular.

Because Disney has so much to gain from the new Disney+ service, it makes sense that Walt Disney Pictures would choose the debut of a remake of a well-known classic film to promote its new service. The hope is that a simultaneous launch of the live-action version of Lady and the Tramp and the streaming service itself will yield high numbers of initial subscriptions beginning on November 12 when the service goes live.

By now, most Disney fans know that if they hope to see the new film, they’ll have to stream it via Disney+.

“It’s cool to be first,” explained Lady and the Tramp director Charlie Bean. “I think the service is going to be incredible; there’s so much unbelievable content that’s on there.”

The content will be pretty spectacular. In addition to original films like Lady and the Tramp, Disney+ will be the exclusively home of the new Star Wars: The Mandalorian series, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, Noelle which was initially slated for theatrical release, a series of brand-new Pixar SparkShorts, Pixar’s new prank show, Pixar IRL, a new Star Wars series starring Ewan McGregor called Kenobi, as well as the massive Disney library of animated films, live-action films, animated shorts, as well as exclusive Star Wars content, Marvel content, National Geographic content and more.

The success of Disney+ would be a win-win for fans and shareholders alike. Disney’s ultimate goal—and arguably the greatest mark of the platform’s success—is to become Netflix’s stiffest competition and ultimately its successor.

Kevin Mayer, Chairman of the Direct-to-Consumer and International Division at the Walt Disney Company may have his fingers crossed for the success of Disney+ more than anyone. That’s because he has spent much of his time lately working on what some say could become the crown jewel at Disney. The success of the new streaming service could be used to measure Mayer’s success at his post.

And because Mayer is one of the Disney execs being eyed for the position of CEO when Bob Iger steps down in 2021, the success of the new streaming service is very important. It could be what propels Mayer into the frontrunner’s spot for consideration as the time for Iger’s resignation draws closer.

‘Lady and the Tramp’ raises the bar for inclusiveness and diversity in remakes

Disney’s live-action version of Lady and the Tramp debuts next week on the Disney+ streaming platform, and fans who haven’t yet seen a trailer for the new film might be surprised by some of the differences between it and the 1955 classic.

We’re not referring to huge differences in the plot or storyline. Rather, fans will notice a difference in certain elements of casting for the film and roles within the story.

For starters, in the live-action remake of the film, Jim Dear and Darling, played by Thomas Mann and Kiersey Clemons, respectively, are a bi-racial couple, and in the original animated film, the pair are a Caucasian couple. The newborn baby in the remake is obviously a bi-racial child, which differs from the baby in the 1955 animated feature. Aunt Sarah, who comes to take care of Jim Dear and Darling’s infant in Disney’s latest live-action remake is an African-American woman, played by the incomparable Yvette Nicole Brown, whereas in the 1955 animated feature, Aunt Sarah is an older Caucasian woman with silver streaks in her hair.

The infant child of Jim Dear and Darling in the remake is a baby girl, and in Disney’s original classic, the child is a boy.

Fans will also notice that in the storyline for the new film, Darling’s character is more dominant than her 1955 counterpart. Perhaps this is in keeping with the design of “strong female characters” many of Disney’s writers currently ascribe to yet it appears the roots of this change came in the initial casting decisions for the film. In the live-action adaptation, Darling is noticeably the head of her family, and it’s not because Jim Dear is incapable or unwilling to be the leader.

While on the set of Lady and the Tramp last year I had the opportunity to talk to Kiersey Clemons (Darling) about this and more. What she shared was really interesting:

INSIDE THE MAGIC: What can you tell us about your character?

KIERSEY CLEMONS: You see a lot more of Darling’s personality than you do in the original and that is cool because it gives me room to kinda build up who I think she is. I’m using my imagination a lot with like the times and this fantasy world of it being Disney and her being this young women of color. So I’m like OK how much of this is something that I can use to be a representation to all of the young girls who are going to watch it. So I’ve made her a lot more assertive and she wears the pants in the relationship. It has been fun this is Disney so I get to use my imagination and I see it as creating this world that it may not have been in 1910 for women or women of color particularly. I’ve made her everything that maybe women didn’t get a chance to be at that time. She is one sassy broad.

INSIDE THE MAGIC: How do you think this movie is different than other classic Disney movies, the version you are doing now?

KIERSEY CLEMONS: I think there is a lot of awareness in this movie particularly a lot of political awareness in terms of gender roles and the way that we see Jim Dear and Darling interact. With the baby and the dogs and the things they do around the house. So it’s really exciting to make a movie that is aimed towards kids and show them something that maybe they don’t see in their own home. Because it is Disney that gives us leeway to go as far as we want and create this dream world of what the world should look like and what households should look like. That is not something you always have the opportunity to do because a lot of times if it’s not a Disney movie you are watching things based on real life and you’re told ‘NO’ or ‘that doesn’t get to go because that wouldn’t really happen.’ But you can’t tell us that here because none of this would really happen – the dogs talk.

INSIDE THE MAGIC: That is interesting you find more freedom with Disney and I think sometimes people would assume that maybe there is less freedom with Disney because they are trying to uphold a certain standard.

KIERSEY CLEMONS: I have more rights than a lot of women all over the world and I am aware of that. I think that although I have those rights there is so much scrutiny in our country and so much expectation that shouldn’t be there. Being able to have a medium like this and a space like this where you can say those opinions don’t matter here because we are in a different dimension – we are in “Disneyland” right now. Hopefully that transfers over to this dimension, but it is something that I recognized in the beginning and that was the biggest part of my excitement for the movie. I have so much freedom. Charlie allows us so much freedom and allows us to improve and play. That is also a win to have a director that allows us to do that and encourages that.

INSIDE THE MAGIC: Talk about the chemistry you have with your onscreen husband. Did you meet before?

KIERSEY CLEMONS: I meet Thomas at Sundance a few years ago and we ran into each other at photoshoots and we hav mutual friends so we were familiar with each other. We get along great and we have the same humor and I think we have the same aim like I was saying with gender roles. Because of that we have the same common goal our improv is always running in the same direction and that is nice and I feel very supported and I hope he feels the same way too. Thomas [Mann] is really funny and he comes up with a lot of funny stuff especially with the gender roles. He is on top of his game.

Fans will further notice some “dog diversity” too in that there is no Jacques in the live-action film. The gender of that role is different in the new film. Jacques has been replaced by a female Scottish terrier named Jock (voiced by Ashley Jensen) in the new movie.

Some of these differences between the live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp and the 1955 classic original are akin to the differences in casting for the live-action reimagining of The Little Mermaid, in which Halle Bailey—an African-American singer and songwriter is set to play the part of Ariel, the mermaid in the original animated feature film who displays Caucasian features.

This move on the part of Disney angered some fans who want the originals left as they are. Others applauded Disney’s choice in casting Bailey in the new movie and further applauded Disney for its efforts in promoting diversity in its new films.

Perhaps Disney is attempting to set the standard and the stage for future live-action remakes—a standard for diversity and inclusion in its new storylines–one in which characters are characters and not labels. Or perhaps these things are explained by Disney’s need to modernize some parts of the story. Maybe both of these things are happening because of a national conversation taking place about regarding other people as humans, not colors.

In a way, they can be one and the same—part of modernizing a storyline from the 1950s could mean casting actors and actresses of different ethnicities and backgrounds. It’s no surprise that mid-1950s America had much to correct in its racial bias—especially in Hollywood.

Inclusion and diversity seem to be the theme in many a conversation today—both publicly and privately. And if Disney is spurring that movement, it’s a good thing for every American, regardless of the entertainment giant’s reason for doing so.

A me sta davvero iniziando a venire il latte alle ginocchia, credetemi. Passi la coppia interrazziale (cambiamento di cui comunque nessuno sentiva la necessità) ma cambiando il sesso del bambino in una femmina cosa vogliono dimostrare? Stanno degenerando con questa storia, per me si sono bevuti il cervello.
Ditemi ora quale gruppo di pazzi applaudirà questa scelta idiota, perché sono curioso. È femminismo anche questo?

Più che altro hanno una bassissima considerazione del loro pubblico, per cui ritengano di stimolare con questi stratagemmi al "girl powerrrrrr!"
e ancora non sappiamo cosa ci riserveranno nel mondo canino. Ah no, anche lì Whisky è una lei. Insomma, hanno prodotto "Lilli Gruber e il vagabondo" Roftl.gif
Il trailer resta comunque fatto molto bene, quindi confido ancora nella qualità del prodotto. Tra una settimana verrà pubblicato su Disney+ e sapremo. Speriamo non tardi molto la versione italiana, chissà che talent nostrani ci propineranno!

Secondo me c'è già lo zampino del tool sull'inclusione con cui fanno esaminare le sceneggiature...

A me fanno venire il vomito... Ok che c'è bisogno di inclusione e di modernizzare le figure femminili, ma così fanno film tutti uguali.. e, per il femminismo sfrenato voglio dire: quando la società si accorgerà che a forza di sminuire gli uomini ci ritroveremo con delle amebe al loro posto sarà troppo tardi..

Speriamo non tardi la versione italiana..

Non riescono a fare una cosa egualitaria a quanto pare, devono sempre esagerare. Roftl.gif Che poi tutto sto femminismo a fracassato le scatole, sinceramente. Se proprio dobbiamo dirla tutta maschilismo e femminismo sono due facce della stessa medaglia, sono due estremismi che si basano sulle stesse ideologie malate. Quando capiranno che femmine e maschi sono uguali e che sia il maschilismo che il femminismo possono essere dannosi, sarà sempre troppo tardi. rolleyes.gif

Ecco arrivare le prime recensioni online: il film ha diviso, metà dei commenti lo hanno affossato e metà lo hanno comunque apprezzato. Su tutto spicca l'apprezzamento dell'utilizzo di animali veri, rispetto alla CGI fotorealistica de Il Re Leone, per quanto l'abbinamento voci e immagini non convince tutti quanti. Pare che i doppiatori di Lilli e Biagio abbiano infuso tanta personalità e entusiasmo (speriamo che in Italia trovino talent - perché mi sembra improbabile ce li risparmino - altrettanto validi) e che il film abbia lievi accenni di modernità e tanti buoni sentimenti. Non diverge molto dal Classico animato e infatti tornano le solite polemiche sulle ragioni di tale produzione. Insomma, io mi fido di ComicBook che parla più da fan che da dottorone del cinema e da parte sua ci sono solo parole positive. Leggete pure ma io, anche rispetto alle evidenti distanze tra pubblico e critica rispetto agli ultimi live action, aspetto con una certa positività smile.gif

'Lady and the Tramp': What the Critics Are Saying

Most agree that the live-action remake falls flat in comparison to the 1955 animated film.
The reviews are in for the Disney+ adaptation of Lady and the Tramp.

The live-action remake of the 1955 classic stars Tessa Thompson as Lady and Justin Theroux as Tramp, with Janelle Monáe, Ashley Jensen and Benedict Wong also included in the voice cast. Additionally, Kiersey Clemons and Thomas Mann play the human stars, Darlin and Jim Dear. Charlie Bean directed the remake.

The film — which has received a 64 percent rating from Rotten Tomatoes — follows a budding romance between upper-middle-class American cocker spaniel Lady and street-smart, downtown stray Schnauzer Tramp. The two embark on many romantic adventures, including the famous spaghetti kissing scene from the original.

The Hollywood Reporter's John DeFore called the film "the dullest to date of the live-action (or quasi-live) remakes of beloved Disney animated films." He wrote that the "human actors' voices often don't even seem to be coming from the dogs' mouths; and when they do, the actor's personality and the canine's face rarely fuse to create an engaging character," though he added that "Theroux seems to work harder than anybody in the voice cast; but the real dog onscreen has none of the charm of 1955's scrappy mutt." DeFore concluded that the pic becomes more involving as it continues, "though some elements that might've been memorable (a musical number from a dog played by Janelle Monáe, for instance) fall flat."

IGN's Jim Vejvoda agreed that the remake fell flat compared to the original, though "the film itself still manages to be a charming and cute family-friendly time-passer." Vejvoda complimented the realistic depiction of the dogs and wrote, "The dogs’ mouths and faces are animated just enough to make them expressive, but they still behave and move as real dogs would." He added, "Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux imbue their canine characters with personality and charm," while "Mann and Clemons channel old-timey earnestness but are left without much else to play as Lady’s owners." The critic concluded, "Disney+’s Lady and the Tramp makes a few key changes to the original’s plot and characters but overall doesn’t do too much different to explain why one should choose to watch this version rather than the original animated classic."

Matt Singer from ScreenCrush wrote that Lady and the Tramp is "harmless and pointless." He added that the pic is a "marginal step up" from Disney's live-action adaptation of The Lion King, which had the characters made entirely with CGI. "At least the dogs in Lady in the Tramp are real, and when they’re not replaced by talking CGI doubles, they exhibit some true dog character in the way they walk and interact and sit at attention," asserted Singer. Similar to other critics, Singer found the remake unnecessary. "I'm not entirely sure why it exists, beyond refreshing this particular IP, reminding customers about the original movie, and slightly padding out Disney+’s lineup of 'original' offerings," he wrote.

Insider's Kristen Acuna called the film a "good update," but also said that "it feels like a straight-to-video movie." Explained the critic, "As a whole, the film doesn't feel up to par with the levels we've come to expect from a big Disney adaptation. … Otherwise, some of the humor is a little too cheesy and is obviously aimed toward smaller children. It's those elements that make it feel like more of a dumbed-down TV movie."

However, CheatSheet's Fred Topel called Lady and the Trump a "strong" effort for Disney+. "Usually when a new content creator emerges, there’s a learning curve before they can start crafting quality films. Disney+ comes out of the gate (or bandwidth?) strong with Lady and the Tramp," he wrote. "It probably helps that they’re Disney. They have experience making movies and TV shows prior to launching their own service. Now you can get their studio quality movies right in your home."

SlashFilm's Josh Spiegel simply branded the pic "adequate" — and unfavorably compared it to other live-action Disney remakes that received theatrical releases. He elaborated, "Though the service itself is designed to hopefully make Disney lots of money, what would the point be of a film like this, one of many that you can watch once the service is available? It can’t make Lion King money or even Dumbo money. The best thing to say about Lady and the Tramp ‘19 is that it’s tolerable, more so than the other Disney remakes released this year. But that’s not saying a whole lot."

Meanwhile, Comicbook.com's Matthew Aguilar found the updated Lady and the Tramp charming. "There was quite a bit of care that went into recreating this classic for a new and modern audience, and it shows. The voice cast instills each pup with ample personality, especially Thompson and Theroux, who also find a way to bring real conflict and vulnerability to both their characters," he wrote. "The timeless story gets just enough modern touches to make it feel fresh once more, and you'll feel just about every emotion before the credits roll. Lady and the Tramp captures the heart and charm of the original and adds a whole new layer of wonder and hope for a brand-new audience, and no Disney fan will want to miss out on experiencing it firsthand."

CinemaBlend's Dirk Libbey also noted the movie's endearing qualities. "While the characters might be dogs, all the standard elements of your romantic comedy formula are here." he pointed out. "The meet cute, the initial disinterest by one party, the event that throws them together, the blooming relationship seemingly ended by a misunderstanding. ... It's your standard rom-com formula, but the fact that we're watching animals go through it at least changes things up a bit. The only other thing a rom-com needs is the comedy part, and Lady and the Tramp is surprisingly funny."

Evan Dossey of the Midwest Film Journal called Lady and the Tramp "good enough," proffering that its most redeeming feature is the use of real-life dogs and outstanding CGI. "The CGI mouth movements when the animal heroes speak lends the whole affair a level of unreality that was problematic for The Lion King earlier this year but isn’t too distracting here. The Lion King took itself far too seriously whereas this (thankfully) does not. A large part of the tonal success belongs to Theroux, who probably would’ve used the same voice if he was wearing a dog costume," Dossey wrote. "It’s a mixture of exaggerated excitement and self-aware absurdity that really lands."

Dopo aver letto quest'articolo sono sollevato e lieto di sperare di ritrovare ciò che desidero, un sentito omaggio al Classico, senza snaturarlo, degli omaggi a Walt, alla sua storia e ai suoi parchi e il comparto tecnico ci soddisferà nuovamente. A me basta happy.gif .

Da Inside the Magic

Does the ‘Lady and the Tramp’ remake honor the iconic Disney classic?

Of all the animated Disney feature films that have been morphed into live-action remakes over the last five years (and there have been many of them), perhaps the most iconic yet is Lady and the Tramp, set to debut on the Disney+ streaming platform on November 12.

The original animated feature was released in theatres in 1955 and showcased the vocal talents of jazz singer Peggy Lee as Darling and Peg, radio and stage actress Barbara Luddy as Lady, comedian Larry Roberts as the Tramp, radio comedian Bill Thompson as Jacques and voice actress Verna Felton (Flora from Sleeping Beauty and Fairy Godmother from Cinderella) as Aunt Sarah.

Based on the book Happy Dan, the Cynical Dog by Ward Greene, Lady and the Tramp was Disney’s 15th animated feature film—the first one to be filmed in the CinemaScope widescreen film process. Because it is an iconic staple in Disney’s animated feature film history and because of its lofty place in classic Disneyana, fans wonder how the live-action adaptation will honor the original—even those who are anticipating its release next week.

Diehard Disney fans point out that Walt Disney was still alive and very much an instrumental part in the production of the 1955 classic, and because of this, they want to be sure the soon-to-be-released reimagining of the film will honor the classic original that inspired it.

It was with this history in mind that when I visited the set of Lady and the Tramp last year I wanted to understand the goals and mindset of the actors who are responsible for remaking this classic. Did they have as much reverence for the original as I? What was going to change and what is staying the same?

If keeping close to the original storyline is the litmus test for honoring the classic, the live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp not only honors the classic; it reveres it. There are a few ways in which it does this.

The storyline has largely stayed the same.

The 1955 Lady and the Tramp tells the story of a little cocker spaniel named Lady that Jim Dear gifts to Darling for Christmas and follows her story as she grows from a puppy to a dog old enough to get her license to a young dog who struggles to understand her place in the family once the new baby is born. Her adventures with an unlikely fellow—Tramp—make up a bulk of the film as we watch the two fall in love, save the baby’s life and ultimately have a family of their own.

Iconic scenes preserved

There are a few iconic scenes in the original 1955 film. One is the scene at the very beginning of the film in which Darling unties the bow on a hatbox to reveal a little cocker spaniel puppy inside. The second, and hands-down most iconic scene, is the spaghetti scene in which Tramp and Lady are seated at a table just outside Tony’s Restaurant where they share a plate of spaghetti while Tony and Joe sing “Bella Notte.”

As you can see above both of these iconic scenes made it into the live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp, and Disney fans couldn’t be more thankful. Not only are the scenes in the film, but the spaghetti scene was done with such painstakingly spot-on attention to detail, that the preparation for the 30-second scene took over two months. And the result is something Disney fans of all ages can be proud of.

Even a few “Walt” references

Over sixty years ago, when Lady and the Tramp was being produced, Walt was instrumental in bringing the film to life. After the success of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937, Walt felt strongly that the animated feature film was the way of the future. For this reason, he began telling old stories with a Disney spin to them—what we call the classics today. And since he is not here to have a say in the remake of this classic, directors and set designers for the new film went out of their ways to bring little touches to the film that would create some Walt nostalgia as a way of honoring him.

“Walt really loved this turn-of-the-century period,” said John Myhre, Production and set designer for the film. “In a lot of his live-action films from the fifties, there are trains, riverboats and trolley cars.”

I found out while on set that as a nod to Walt Disney, when the main street of the town in the live-action film was being created, it was patterned after Main Street U. S. A. at Disneyland, which was patterned after the main street downtown area of Walt’s hometown—Marceline, Missouri.

[i]Myhre says that adding those extra touches was a way of honoring Walt in the new film.


“We thought, ‘let’s try to get all of those iconic [items] in here,’” Myrhe recalled. He says that Charlie Bean, the director of Lady and the Tramp, began to write these things into the script one at a time.

Myrhe admitted, “those are all very much nods to Walt Disney and to Disneyland and to this life that [Walt] loved.”

Cast Comments

Each of the many cast members I had a chance to talk to gave their own unique take on the gravity of the film and need to honor the classic from which it was based. I’ve spoken of these comments in other articles on the topic but to briefly summarize Yvette Nicole Brown in discussing her role as Aunt Sarah, humorously recalls a conversation with her Mom which she was having doubts about taking on a role that requires a lack of love for the canine cast.

As a dog lover herself she almost didn’t accept the role because she understood what the role required. In addition to her wise mom’s advice “This is Disney so you are going to accept the part.” I learned that if you can even call this a change it would be the awareness that today’s audience includes more animal lovers than in the past and its a modern retelling of the classic story that accounts for our collective worldview.

That couldn’t be more evident than in the one area of the story that does change. Darling played by Kiersy Clemons has an opportunity in the movie to be a hero to Tramp in a way that you won’t find in the original. Without giving away spoilers as to how this positive role unfolds it is perhaps the biggest change in the retelling of the story.

Again, if staying close to the story of the original film and to certain elements that made it a classic are the earmarks of honoring that classic, the new version of Lady and the Tramp honors the classic and keeps it in high regard. Every actor shared how the appeal of the movie is the classic Disney story and how they wanted to keep it as true to the original as possible. And that’s something many fans of Walt and his beloved classics can be thankful for, and proud of, as they enjoy the latest remake, set to debut on Disney+ on November 12.[/i]
