If you grew up watching Disney classics, you’re in luck — the company premiered the trailer for their upcoming live-action movie, Lady and the Tramp. This film comes after a slew of Disney remakes, including The Lion King, Aladdin, Dumbo, and Beauty and the Beast.

Starring as Lady in this film is Tessa Thompson, the actress known for her role in Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Endgame. Aside from starring in Marvel movies, the actress appeared in Westworld, Men in Black: International, and Dear White People. Additionally, she’s expected to star in the upcoming Marvel movie, Thor: Love and Thunder, as Valkyrie.

You may know him as Bobby from A Star is Born or the Stranger from The Big Lebowski. Sam Elliott is an award-winning actor and one of the lead roles in Lady and the Tramp. Sam Elliott portrays Trusty, who, in the original film, is the neighbor of Lady. It is unclear how large of a role this character is, given that Disney often slightly changes the plot of their reboots.
