‘Lady and the Tramp’ Remake to be Exclusive on Disney’s Streaming Service


Disney is all about remaking its classic animated features into live-action movies. Now the word is that some of those remakes may be exclusive to Disney’s upcoming streaming service.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the live-action version of Lady and the Tramp will make its debut on Disney’s Netflix competitor.

Charlie Bean, who directed The Lego Ninjago Movie, is going to the dogs.

Bean has closed a deal to helm the live-action/CG hybrid remake of Disney’s animated classic Lady and the Tramp.

Brigham Taylor, who worked on the studio’s remake of The Jungle Book, is producing the project, which is looking to be made for Disney’s digital streaming service that will launch in 2019.

This is an interesting move by Disney, and further cements just how much they’re betting on this new streaming service. With Disney dominating the box office, some of its lesser known movies are getting buried underneath its larger franchises.

Such may have been the case with A Wrinkle in Time getting trampled on by the runaway success of Black Panther.

Disney is just producing too much content for it all to fare well at the box office, and direct-to-streaming may be the ideal solution for its B-list films.

In addition to four to six first run Disney films, the service is also expected to host TV content featuring Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar brands.

Earlier this month, The Walt Disney Company announced a massive reorganization in anticipation of the streaming service.

I've loved Disney as long as I can remember. As a former newspaper editor, web developer, and Disney comics freelancer, I'm able to combine that experience into writing about Disney online. I'm also the co-host of a Disney fan podcast called 'Pirates & Princesses.' Opinions mine.
