New Lady and the Tramp film used dogs that were rescued and then gave them to loving new homes
So. Many. Happy. Dogs. This is great.
With news that Disney+ is officially launching in Ireland in March 2020, we're certain that the online streaming platform is going to be incredibly popular with viewers.
After all, their library will be brimming with a plethora of Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars titles.
Aside from this, excitement levels have been building for the new version of Lady and the Tramp because, well, it has more dogs than you can possibly imagine.
Just like the classic cartoon, the feel-good romance is bound to warm hearts and the same can be said about the people involved with making the film because they adopted dogs from various rescue homes and pounds for the film.
When production was completed, they then found these dogs their 'forever homes.'
The film's director, Charlie Bean, has said that,"In many ways, the story is a story about rescuing animals." This sentiment is echoed by the Lead Animal Trainer on the film, Mark Forbes, when he remarked that, " a big portion of the dogs that we used on the film needed rescuing. They came from a pound, or a shelter, or foster homes. We looked all over the country."
For those that are curious, 'Tramp' is played by a dog named Monte who was rescued from a shelter in New Mexico and he's described as charming, gentle, and soulful.
'Lady' is played by a doggo called Rose and she came from a rescue home in Utah. Rose is described as a dog that's very active and full of spirit.
As you can see in the feature below, when filming ended, all the adopted dogs that featured in the film were then given to their 'forever homes' and given a second chance to find a family where they belong.
The film stars Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux as the voices of the titular characters, with Kiersey Clemons, Thomas Mann, Yvette Nicole Brown, Ken Jeong and F. Murray Abraham also featuring in live-action roles.
Sam Elliott, Ashley Jensen and Janelle Monáe also feature in the voice cast.
At present, the list of titles for Disney +'s Irish launch haven't been announced, but we fully expect Lady and the Tramp to feature.
Take a look at the lovely segment below.
