But like any good streaming service, Disney+ wouldn’t feature only existing content; it would be debuting original content. One of the first two original films debuting on Disney+ was the live-action remake of the animated 1955 Disney Canon film, Lady and the Tramp. Was this remake a good film to christen Disney+ with?
