Tessa Thompson attended a screening of Lady And The Tramp with some furry friends.

The event, hosted by The Cinema Society, featured the film’s stars with representatives from North Shore Animal League America, a 75-year-old no-kill rescue and adoption organization based in Port Washington, New York.

Also joining Thompson was her co-star Justin Theroux and their dog doubles Rose (Lady) and Monte (Tramp). Lady And The Tramp also stars Yvette Nicole Brown (Aunt Sarah), Adrian Martinez (Elliott), F. Murray Abraham (Tony). The live-action remake of the animated Disney classic is scheduled for release on Nov. 12.

Thompson has been enjoying a successful 2019 with three major films at the box office. In addition to lending her voice to the Disney classic as “Lady,” she appeared in Men in Black: International and Avengers: Endgame, not to mention appearances in TV series “Westworld” and the made-for-TV film Between Two Ferns: The Movie.

In 2020, Thompson will portray the first LGBTQ Marvel film character in Thor: Love and Thunder. Picking up in the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame, Valkyrie (Thompson) will assume the role of the ruler of New Asgard.
