Like most kids who grew up watching The Wonderful World of Disney on television Sunday nights, Lady and the Tramp was a beloved film from my childhood, the scene of two dogs sharing a string of spaghetti being an image that few will ever forget. The Mouse House will continue mining the vault with the first animation-to-CG remake for their upcoming streaming service: Lady and the Tramp.

THR reports that The LEGO Ninjago Movie director Charlie Bean has been tapped to take the helm of the redo, which will be a live-action/animation hybrid so no need to fret about a Santa Buddies or Air Bud-type situation here. Instead, Disney intends to release this film directly to its streaming service that will launch in 2019.

The streaming service is now slated to launch sometime in 2019. Previously, Bean helmed The LEGO Ninjago Movie and almost every episode of the Tron: Uprising TV series.

The service will have four to six movies a year among content that will include film and TV offerings from Disney brands Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars.

The 2D animated Lady and the Tramp was released in 1955, produced by Walt Disney and directed by Clyde Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson and Hamilton Luske. Andrew Bujalski is writing the script for the remake with Jessica Virtue and Chaz Salembier overseeing the project for Disney. Set in 1910s America, the movie introduced audiences to a pampered cocker spaniel named Lady (voiced by Barbara Luddy), who meets a scrappy street mutt named Tramp (Larry Roberts) when she's pushed out by the arrival of her owners' new baby.
