First Look at The Disney+ Interface Offers First Image of LADY AND THE TRAMP and FALCON & WINTER SOLDIER Logo
Disney Studios held a big presentation today for investors regarding their upcoming Disney+ streaming service. Some news is starting to trickle out of that event and we now have our first look at the Disney+ interface.
While they were showing off the interface they offered the first image of their live-action adaptation of Lady and the Tramp and they also showed The Mandalorian and the Falcon & Winter Soldier series logos.
When talking about the Interface, Kevin Mayer, Chairman, Direct-to-Consumer and International said:
“The hero carousel at the top of the page enables us to feature what’s new and noteworthy, while allowing easy access to the content consumers want to see.
“Whether it’s their favorite princess movie like Frozen, a heartwarming animated hit like Coco, a recently-added theatrical film like Captain Marvel, a Disney+ original like The Mandalorian, or an inspiring, real-life story like Free Solo ... the fact that we have the brands that matter is the single biggest differentiator for our service.”
As for the Lady and the Tramp image, the two main dog characters look great! They are the real-life counterparts of the animated characters! It was previously confirmed that the film was shot using real dogs, so don’t expect CGI animals like in The Lion King.
Lady and Tramp will be voiced by Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux. They will be joined by Benedict Wong as Bull and Ashley Jensen as Jackie. Janelle Monáe has jumped on board as Peg, the pound dog who was voiced by Peggy Lee in the original animated film in 1955. Kiersey Clemons will play Darling and Thomas Mann will play Jim Dear, the owner of Lady, the refined and pampered cocker spaniel who falls in love with Tramp. Then there’s Yvette Nicole Brown as Darling’s dog-hating Aunt Sarah.
The story follows "a pampered cocker spaniel named Lady whose comfortable life slips away once her owners have a baby. When, after some tense circumstances, Lady finds herself on the loose and out on the street, she is befriended and protected by the tough stray mutt Tramp. A romance begins to blossom between the two dogs, but their many differences, along with more drama at Lady’s household, threaten to keep them apart."
Lady and the Tramp is being directed by Charlie Bean (The LEGO Ninjago Movie) with a script written by Andrew Bujalski. No specific release date has been set, but we’ll probably see it released on Disney+ in 2019.
