The internet erupted in cheers last week when Disney gave fans another glimpse of the new live-action film "Lady and the Tramp."
"I think it’s one of the greatest love stories that’s ever been told," said actress Tessa Thompson, who voices Lady, a pampered cocker spaniel and one of the film’s leading pups. "It was the first time I thought about romantic love and the spaghetti scene, it occupies a big space in my heart."
"It’s very ahead of its time," said actor Justin Theroux, who voices the character of Tramp, the street dog in the live-action film.
It’s been a little over six decades since the original "Lady and the Tramp" hit theaters, but the story still resonates with so many people.
For Thompson and Theroux, it meant a lot for them to be a part of the update and to introduce the story to a new audience.
"It’s exciting to bring it to a new generation," said Thompson.
While you’d have to wait a few more weeks to watch the film, the second trailer has almost 1 million views on YouTube, easily becoming one of the most highly anticipated films on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+.
With a modern take on the classic story, it’s also opening up a larger conversation about supporting rescue animals, and inspired Thompson to rescue a pup herself once filming wrapped.
"I’ve always wanted a rescue dog," Thompson said. "Maybe something about working on this film."
Theroux, whose dog Kuma, a rescue, made a small cameo in the movie said, "That concept of street dogs and adoption is much more embraced now so it’s just fabulous and adorable."
You can watch Disney’s live-action film, "Lady and the Tramp," on Nov. 12 when Disney+ premieres.
