Janelle Monáe Joins 'Lady And The Tramp' Cast

Woof! Singer Janelle Monáe will play one of the pups in the new live-action remake of 'Lady And The Tramp'.

The upcoming Disney film also stars Monáe's girlfriend --Tessa Thompson -- who will play the iconic cocker spaniel, Lady.

Monáe will be playing Peg -- the sassy pound dog who was voiced by Peggy Lee in the 1955 film, Variety reports.

Monae -- who released her Dirty Computer record in April this year --confirmed the news via her Twitter page this morning with a pooch-related message.

The Lady And The Tramp remake will also star Justin Theroux as the Tramp and Ashley Benson will bring Scottish terrier Jackie to life.

Kiersey Clemons and Thomas Mann will appear as Jim Dear and Darlin, the human characters in the beloved Disney film.

The new movie will be a mixture of CGI and live action but *hopefully* this magical scene will be recreated.
