Ashley Jensen is the first actor to join the cast of Disney's upcoming live-action Lady and the Tramp remake. The movie will skip theaters and instead premiere exclusively through the Mouse House's as-yet unnamed streaming service, when it launches sometime in Fall 2019.
Disney recently tapped The Lego Ninjago Movie director Charlie Bean to helm the live-action/CG hybrid update of the animated classic, which is a priority project for the studio's as-yet-untitled streaming service slated to launch in late 2019.
The movie will be an exclusive to the service — which will include film and TV content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm — and it won't have a theatrical run.
