Lady and the Tramp (2019)
So cute and awesome!
adorable! 10/10 I want all the dogs now, just give me all the dogs in this movie please!
This was very cute. A few things I would have liked to stay closer to the original (jocks character), but I overall it was great! The doggies that started did a great job ❤️
Amongst the collection that was Disney+'s original content available on the service's launch day was Disney's latest live-action remake of one of their animated classics, 'Lady and the Tramp'. One could describe the original 'Lady and the Tramp' as a Disney classic that sadly tends to get overlooked sometimes, especially since it came out between two of Disney Animation's most famous works, 'Peter Pan' and 'Sleeping Beauty'. Nevertheless, I'm 100% sure that this adorable tale of an unexpected romance between a domesticated Cocker Spaniel and a stray mutt is still fondly remembered by those who grew up with it, especially thanks to the iconic scene where they share a romantic spaghetti dinner to the tune of 'Bella Notte'.
As for the remake, it admittedly goes the same route that the recent remakes of 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Aladdin' did by not making any radical changes to the story. In other words, most of its changes are cosmetic in nature, from turning the local dogcatcher into the 'main antagonist' to giving Aunt Sarah's troublemaking pair of Siamese Cats a new song since the original has often been perceived as conveying racist stereotypes. At the same time, though, this remake also does something that you'd normally wouldn't see in this day and age by using real dogs (many of them rescues) to portray its main characters. Because of this, this new version of 'Lady and the Tramp' does manage to be on par with its animated counterpart in terms of its cuteness factor and Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux are excellent in the title roles. Thus, while it may not be 'essential' viewing (nor is it the best of these recent live-action Disney remakes, for that matter), I honestly can't see how anyone can be mad at a film like this.
