This film is in the very early phases of production, so very little is known. According to IMDB, Will Gluck and Keith Bunin are collaborating on writing the script. You might recall Keith Bunin wrote Disney’s Onward.

It is rumored that the film’s style will be similar to that of 2019’s Lady and the Tramp reboot. The film about puppy love came straight to Disney+.
