Here's Your First Look At The 'Lady and The Tramp' Live Action Cast

Here's Your First Look At The 'Lady and The Tramp' Live Action Cast

When news that Disney was working on a live action remake of Lady and the Tramp got out, the first thing we thought of was the doggy cast and how much we couldn't wait to see them.

Now, we FINALLY have pictures.


People unveiled the first look at the soon-to-be-famous pooches on Thursday and tbh we couldn't have cast it better ourselves.

The real life doggos resemble the animated characters from the 1955 classic perfectly, and what's better, all they're all rescue! 10 points to Disney.

Lady will be played by Rose, a brown and beige cocker spaniel with adorable floppy ears just like her animated counterpart, and voiced by Creed star Tessa Thompson.

Tramp is played by Monte, a terrier who was rescued from a kill-shelter in New Mexico by Halo Animal Rescue before being transferred to a shelter in Phoenix where one of the film's trainers, Mark Forbes, adopted him.


Tramp is voiced by animal rights advocate and Mulholland Drive star Justin Theroux.

We also see real life versions of Trusty, the drooly bloodhound who's lost his sense of smell, voiced by Sam Elliot of A Star Is Born, Jock, the friendly Scottish terrier, voiced by The Lobster's Ashley Jensen, Peg, the Tibetan Spaniel, responsible for singing 'He's A Tramp' in the original, who will be voiced by recording artist Janelle Monae, and finally Bull, the loveable bulldog, voiced by Avengers' Benedict Wong.

Thomas Mann, Kiersey Clemons, Ashley Jensen, and Yvette Nicole Brown have also been cast to play canine characters, but we don't have photos of their respective pooches yet.

The upcoming film is being directed by Charlie Bean, produced by Bringham Taylor and was written by Andrew Bujalski.

The live-action version of Lady and the Tramp will be available in the US at launch of Disney+, the forthcoming streaming platform set to rival the likes of Netflix, Hayu and more, on 12th November 2019.

Robert Iger, Disney's chairman and CEO, said: "Disney+ marks a bold step forward in an exciting new era for our company-one in which consumers will have a direct connection to the incredible array of creative content that is The Walt Disney Company's hallmark.

"We are confident that the combination of our unrivalled storytelling, beloved brands, iconic franchises, and cutting-edge technology will make Disney+ a standout in the marketplace, and deliver significant value for consumers and shareholders alike."

One thing's for sure we can't wait to see these dogs in action.
