The actress joins a cast that includes Kiersey Clemons as Darling, the human owner of Lady; Ashley Jensen as the voice of Scottish Terrier Jackie and Benedict Wong as the voice of English bulldog Bull.

The film will feature the animal characters being brought to life using CGI, similar to Disney's 2016 remake of The Jungle Book.

Charlie Bean (The Lego Ninjago Movie) is directing based on a script by Andrew Bujalski. Lady and the Tramp was first released as a fully animated film in 1955.

Thompson will next be seen in boxing sequel Creed II on Nov. 28 and is set to star alongside Chris Hemsworth in a new version of Men in Black.
