The movie, however, is one of the priority projects for Walt Disney's forthcoming digital streaming service. The digital platform will start with domestic audience before going overseas. However, its price points have not been determined, reports aceshowbiz.com.

The animated film originally released on 22 June, 1955. The film follows a spoiled cocker spaniel named Lady. Lady is saddened by the fact that her owners treat her rather coldly as they are expecting a baby.

While her two friends, Jock and Trusty, try to explain what a baby is, a streetwise mutt named Tramp interrupts the conversation. He says, "When the baby moves in, the dog moves out." They experience a series of events with Trump always being by Lady's side. Eventually, Tramp is adopted by Lady's owners and the two dogs get married.

Brigham Taylor, who produced The Jungle Book, is on board as the producer and Andrew Bujalski will pen the script. The movie is set to launch in 2019.
