TRAILER | 'Cruella' Is A New Disney Spin-Off Of 101 Dalmations Featuring Emma Stone
And from the trailer, it looks a bit too spooky to be Disney
We've seen Glenn Close take up the style and make-up of one of Disney's most iconic villains being Cruella de Vil, and I'd say she offered the most accurate depiction of the character. I'm interested to see what Emma Stone will do with the role as she will play Cruella in her origin story.
The last time Disney made a movie telling the origin story of a villain was with Angelina Jolie as Maleficent in 2014, deeming the studio blockbuster success. This time, Disney will take us to 1970s London, to show us what makes Cruella cruel.
...amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by two-time Oscar® winner Emma Thompson. But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable, and revenge-bent Cruella
Cruella is directed by Craig Gillespie (Fright Night), and the screenplay has been written by Dana Fox and Tony McNamara.
The film comes out later this year on May the 28th.
