Lady is the dog of Jim Dear and Darling. This demure and rich Springer Spaniel falls in love with Tramp. As of this moment, there’s no confirmed news on who will voice the ever-so-loving Lady.

Lady’s owner, also known as Darling, will be voiced by the actress, Kiersey Clemons. Kiersey also starred in Disney’s Shake It Up and Neighbors 2.

Unfortunately, we are not seeing Lady and the Tramp live-action film on the big screen. Instead, Disney is releasing the film through their own streaming app, Disney Life, which will launch in the US in 2019. Last March, the Philippines is one of the first countries to launch the Disney Life app, along with the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

In addition to this, Disney is also planning to make five more movies that will exclusively be released on the Disney life app! Now THAT is exciting.
