Rescue Dog Becomes Disney Star in Live Action "Lady and the Tramp"

Just about a year ago, a dog named Monte was living at HALO Animal Rescue in Phoenix, Arizona. Now, he's working his way to movie stardom. Two-year-old Monte has been cast as "Tramp" in Disney's live-action remake of "Lady and the Tramp," the company announced.

Monte will star alongside a cocker spaniel named Rose, who will play Lady. The human voices behind the characters have also been revealed. Tramp will be played by Justin Theroux and Tessa Thompson will play Lady.

Sam Elliott, Janelle Monae and Yvette Nicole Brown also lend their voices to the new remake of the 1955 Disney classic. The film will premiere on Disney+, the company's new streaming service, which will launch on November 12.
