Disney is going to the dogs with its latest live-action project. The animated classic “Lady and the Tramp” is getting a remake for the company’s new streaming platform—but social media isn’t totally on board with the newest live-action adaptation.

According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, the Charlie Bean-directed film “is looking to be made for Disney’s digital streaming service that will launch in 2019.” The movie, which is being produced by Brigham Taylor, will reportedly combine live-action and CG elements. Bean’s previous directorial projects include “Tron: Uprising” and “The Lego Ninjago Movie,” while Taylor produced the 2016 live-action remake of Disney’s “The Jungle Book.”

The original movie told the story of “a pampered cocker spaniel named Lady whose comfortable life slips away once her owners have a baby. When, after some tense circumstances, Lady finds herself on the loose and out on the street, she is befriended and protected by the tough stray mutt Tramp.” The pair embarks on a series of adventures, including a romantic spaghetti dinner that is considered to be one of the most iconic scenes in the film.

The 1955 film starred Barbara Luddy, Larry Roberts, Peggy Lee, Verna Felton, George Givot, Dal McKennon and Alan Reed. Other Disney classics that have recently been remade as live-action films include “Cinderella,” “The Jungle Book” and “Beauty and the Beast.” Upcoming adaptations include “Aladdin” and “The Lion King.”

Disney’s streaming service is expected to launch in fall 2019.
