Claude Coats was then appointed as the key background artist. [53] After a protracted legal battle, she was awarded $2.3 million in 1991. Produced 46 years after its predecessor and set two years and a few months after the events of the first film, it centers on the adventures of Lady and Tramp's only son, Scamp, who desires to be a wild dog.

That Christmas, Tramp has been adopted into the family, and he and Lady have started their own family, with Lady having given birth to a litter of four puppies (three daughters who look identical to Lady and one son who looks identical to Tramp). One day, Lady is upset after her owners begin treating her rather coldly. An episode of Disneyland called "A Story of Dogs" aired before the film's release. Reviews for the sequel were generally mixed to negative, with critics panning its plot. However, due to the growing interest of widescreen film among movie-goers, Disney decided to animate the film in CinemaScope making Lady and the Tramp the first animated feature filmed in the process. [3], More problems arose as the premiere date got closer since not all theaters had the capability to show CinemaScope at the time. [23] A standalone 1-disc DVD edition was released on March 20, 2012. This article was written completely independently.

Eventually, the baby arrives, and the couple introduces Lady to the infant, of whom Lady becomes very fond and protective. A lot of filming took place in and around Wright Square, filled with charming historical architecture. Jim Dear and Darling return home as the dog catcher departs, and when they release Lady, she leads them to the dead rat. While at the pound, the other dogs reveal to Lady that Tramp has had multiple girlfriends in the past, and they feel it is unlikely that he will ever settle down. Animators had to remember that they had to move their characters across a background instead of the background passing behind them. Coats made models of the interiors of Jim Dear and Darling's house, and shot photos and film at a low perspective as reference to maintain a dog's view. [7] Yet the animators overcame these obstacles during the action scenes, such as Tramp killing the rat. [5], The finished film is slightly different from what was originally planned. They were briefly referred to as "Mister" and "Missis" before settling on the names "Jim Dear" and "Darling". A live-action remake premiered on November 12, 2019 on The Walt Disney Company's streaming service Disney+. [3] Layout artists essentially had to reinvent their technique.
