Grammy-nominated singer and “Moonlight” star Janelle Monae has signed on for the upcoming remake of the Disney animated classic “Lady and the Tramp” for the studio’s digital streaming service to launch in 2019.

“Lady and the Tramp” tells the story of an American Cocker Spaniel named Lady (Tessa Thompson) who lives with an upper-middle-class family but is set astray when the family has a baby.

Lady ends up meeting a mongrel known as the Tramp (Justin Theroux) on the streets and they embark on a romantic journey and eventually fall in love.

Monae plays Peg, a wise-cracking pound dog. Ashley Jensen and Benedict Wong also lend their voices, while Thomas Mann and Kiersey Clemons play two human characters. Charlie Bean directs the live-action/CG hybrid film from a script by Andrew Bujalski.

Set to be arguably the biggest of the launch films for the soon to premiere Disney+ streaming service, “Lady and the Tramp” is a live-action adaptation of the famed 1955 animated feature. Unlike with “The Lion King” or “The Jungle Book” though, this one is almost entirely live-action with real actors interacting with real dogs (with a bit of CG assistance). “The Lego Ninjago Movie” helmer Charlie Bean directs the story of an upper-middle-class American cocker spaniel named Lady (voiced by Tessa Thompson) who meets a streetsmart, downtown stray mongrel called the Tramp (voiced by Justin Theroux), with the two embarking on many romantic adventures. Janelle Monae, Ashley Jensen, Sam Elliott and Benedict Wong lend their voices while Kiersey Clemons, Thomas Mann, Yvette Nicole Brown and Arturo Castro appear in on screen human roles.
