Just ahead of its debut on November 12th, The Cinema Society hosted a screening of Disney+’s “Lady and the Tramp” in New York last night featuring the cast of humans, as well as the cast of rescue animals.
- Tessa Thompson (voice of Lady), Justin Theroux (voice of Tramp), Yvette Nicole Brown (Aunt Sarah), Adrian Martinez (Elliott), F. Murray Abraham (Tony), Rose (Lady), Monte (Tramp), Director Charlie Bean, Producer Brigham Taylor and Associate Producer Kayla Fishman joined representatives from North Shore Animal League America as well as special guests for the screening.
- North Shore Animal League America has been making a positive difference in the lives of homeless animals for 75 years, working with their shelter partners across the country. They kicked off their collaboration with Disney and were on hand at tonight’s event with adoptable rescue dogs.
- In Disney+’s “Lady and the Tramp,” life is good for Lady, an overachieving American Cocker Spaniel who resides in an upscale suburban neighborhood. Her owners, Jim Dear and Darling, spoil her daily and her neighbors, Jock, an outspoken Scottish Terrier and Trusty, a world-weary Bloodhound, are always within barking distance. But when a baby enters the picture, Lady is no longer the center of attention, and the arrival of cat-loving Aunt Sarah only complicates matters. Lady soon finds herself alone on the streets in an unwelcoming part of town. Fortunately, Tramp steps in, and the streetwise mongrel is quick to teach her the ways of the world. Before long, the prim and proper purebred and the fast-talking mutt are partaking in moonlight strolls in the park and romantic spaghetti dinners by candlelight. Tramp savors the independence of a world without leashes or fences alongside his roguish friends Peg and Bull, but Lady misses the comfort and safety of a family, and soon both must decide where – and with whom – they belong.
- A heartwarming romantic adventure that seamlessly combines live action and photorealistic animation, the film is directed by Charlie Bean from a screenplay by Andrew Bujalski and Kari Granlund, and is produced by Brigham Taylor. “Lady and the Tramp” is available to stream on Disney + on Nov. 12.
