It's been confirmed that Disney is planning on making a live-action remake of their 1955 animated favorite Lady And The Tramp, and our hearts are filled with so excitment over the upcoming remake.

For those of you who haven't seen Lady And The Tramp, the animated movie followed what we'd call a paw-fect romance between two dogs: a pampered cocker spaniel named Lady and a stray mutt named Tramp. The movie follows the two pups on their adventures through town, and it happens to feature one of Disney's most iconic scenes: the pair eating a spaghetti dinner together while a cook sings “Bella Notte.”

While details on the upcoming project are slim, there's a few things we do know about Disney's upcoming film. 

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the film will take on a mix of both live-action shots and some CG action. We're not sure to what extent the live-action to special effects ratio will be yet, but we're pretty excited to see how the blend the two together. 

On board for the project is animator and director Charlie Bean, who's worked on popular films like the 2002 Powerpuff Girls movie, Cartoon Network's animate series Samuri Jack and most recently the Lego Ninjago Movie. Joining Bean will be the film's producer Brigham Taylor, who worked on the Disney's remake of the Jungle Book

Other players on the project are Andrew Bujalski, who penned the script, and Jessica Virtue and Chaz Salembier, who are overseeing the film for Disney.

The film's release date hasn't been announced, but it's important to note that you won't be able to catch this film in theaters. The live-action movie will make its way onto Disney's new streaming service, which has an anticipated 2019 launch. 

While it's not getting a theater release, we're still pretty excited about the film—and it doesn't look like we're alone in our excitment. 

We're pretty excited about the film, but what do you think? Let us know below!
