The Siamese Cats Could Be Dropped From The Lady And The Tramp Remake

She'll reportedly be working with her artist collective Wondaland on the revamp and will also have a voice role in the live-action reboot, which will only be streaming on Disney's upcoming new service, Disney Plus.


The Siamese Cat Song, originally recorded by Peggy Lee for the sinister cats named Si and Am in the 1955 version, features the well-known lyrics like "we are Siamese if you please/we are Siamese if you don't please".
