Directed by Charlie Bean, Lady and the Tramp is a timeless retelling of the 1955 animated classic that will be available at launch on November 12, 2019.

Murray Abraham as Tony, Sam Elliott as the voice of Trusty, Ashley Jensen as the voice of Jock, Janelle Monáe as the voice of Peg, and Benedict Wong as the voice of Bull. Rose, a cocker spaniel, and Monte, a mix of unknown breeds, play the title characters.
