Classic meets live-action

Lady and the tramp will have a reimaging with this live-action remake. This was a known movie coming to Disney plus but more details have been released. Most of the dogs that star in the movies was a rescue dog from the shelter. This uses a lot less CGI than other Disney live-action movies, which I think will add to the overall feel of the remake.

Based on true events

Togo is based on true events during the 1925 serum run to Nome. This was also known as the great race of Mercy where dog sled teams pushed through harsh Alaskan terrain to deliver Diphtheria Antitoxin serum. Willem Dafoe has signed on to play the role of Leonhard Seppala, the Norwegian sled dog musher.
