Washington: American actress Tessa Thompson is all set to lend her voice for the CGI hybrid remake of Disney’s ‘Lady and the Tramp’.
The 34-year-old star will voice the upscale Cocker Spaniel opposite Justin Theroux’s Tramp for ‘Lego Ninjago’ director Charlie Bean, confirmed The Hollywood Reporter.
The original 1955 animated classic is the story about a female American cocker spaniel, Lady who stays with an upper-middle-class family and a male stray mongrel named Tramp. The two dogs fell in love with each other when they meet before they embark on a romantic adventure.
The remake is expected to make its debut on Disney’s upcoming digital streaming service, which will be launched in 2019.
‘Extras’ star Ashley Jensen will play the role of Scottish Terrier Jackie.
Meanwhile, Thompson will also be seen in the upcoming movie ‘Men in Black’ spinoff, opposite her ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ colleague Chris Hemsworth.
