Disney’s adoration for live-action adaptations is now extending to its other big bet: upcoming streaming service Disney+. When the service rolls out later this fall on November 12, it will include a robust slate of programming from the Mouse House. Disney+ originals will include new television series based on the enormously popular “Star Wars” and Marvel Cinematic Universe brands and the platform will also be home to many of the company’s most popular legacy films and shows. Most Pixar films, the first two “Star Wars” trilogies, and all 30 seasons of “The Simpsons” will be available on the service.

And it will also offer yet another live-action remake to join recent hits like “The Lion King” and “Aladdin”: “Lady and the Tramp,” now with actual dogs. Directed by Charlie Bean and written by Andrew Bujalski (yes, “Computer Chess” and “Support the Girls” Bujalski, yet another interesting pick from a studio that loves to choose indie filmmakers for mainstream properties, in the vein of Alex Ross Perry and David Lowery), the film features the voices of Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux as the eponymous dogs.
