The Remake of “Lady and the Tramp” Leaves Many Joyful

The remake of “Lady and the Tramp” is an amazing work of art. Disney released the movie, not in theaters, but rather on their new video service Disney+. The movie was visually appealing and showed a great story, like the original.

The story was very similar to the original, but the setting was changed. Instead of a mid-western town, the movie takes place in the fabulous city of Paris.

Even though most of her screen time is cut, baby Lady is shown in the beginning, like the original. The movie shows her surprising Darling by being Jim Dear’s gift to his wife. It then shows them waking up and Lady is an adult and shows off her new collar to her friends Jock and Trusty. Then the movie goes along like the first one.

The movie was very heart warming in general. The kiss scene was just as touching as the original and the pound was still very spooky and dark.

The movie did have some changes to it. The terrier, Jock, is transformed into a girl, the Siamese cats no longer sing their song but “What a Shame” instead, and two street pups that appear frequently are added.

The movie was visually appealing. The creators used the same kind of mouth-moving animation for the dogs as they used in other Disney productions, such as “Dog with a Blog”. The human’s faces, unlike the animated version, are visible.

This movie is amazing and would be a great movie to watch with the family. The goofy romance movie would be good for ages two and up, since toddlers seem to love animals. This movie would also feel nostalgic to parents who grew up with this movie.
