ANAHEIM, Calif. — Break out the pup-corn! Disney just released the first official trailer of its live-action remake of “Lady and the Tramp.”
The trailer was unveiled during Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, on Friday.
Directed by Charlie Bean and featuring Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux, the film will include two original songs from the 1955 animated classic, as well as a reinvention of “The Siamese Cat Song,” which was criticized for a controversial portrayal of Asian culture.
