The year 2019 has truly been the year of live-action remakes. We have Aladdin, The Lion King, and now we’re getting a live-action Lady and the Tramp remake as well. The legendary Sam Elliott will be taking on the role of Trusty in the film and we’re so excited to hear that voice again! The remake will premiere only on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+, on November 12th.

The cast consists of Kiersey Clemons, Thomas Mann, Yvette Nicole Brown, Adrian Martinez, Arturo Castro, Sam Elliott, Ashley Jensen, Benedict Wong, and Janelle Monáe. They will be under the direction of Charlie Bean.

According to Wikipedia, the live-action movie appears to be very true to the original 1955 story. It’s slated to be about “an upper-middle-class American cocker spaniel named Lady (Tessa Thompson) who meets a streetsmart, downtown stray mongrel called the Tramp (Justin Theroux)… the two embark on many romantic adventures including that iconic spaghetti smooch scene.

Last we heard of Elliott on-screen was for his incredible performance in A Star is Born in 2018. In between 2018 and now, he has been starring in a series called The Ranch and also appeared as himself in animated character form on the show Family Guy.
