Ahead of the movie’s release on Disney+, we sat down with four of its stars: Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux, who provide the voices of lead romantic duo Lady and Tramp, as well as the canines who play those charming dogs on screen, Rose and Monte.

Want to know how they really felt about recreating that famous spaghetti scene? Watch the interview above.
