Announced a decade ago, fans were finally treated to a poster and trailer for Disney’s live-action movie Cruella, providing an origin story for the infamous villain Cruella De Vil.
Emma Stone is set to bring a whole new lease of life to the Disney villain as we dive into the depths of her younger years and how she became the villain we all know and hate.
Potentially one of the most evil villains ever, Emma Stone proves in the trailer that she was born to be bad. We’re set to learn how this terrifying character, who symbolizes vanity and greed, came to be the dog-murdering villainess.
In the recently released trailer, we meet the “brilliant, bad, and a little bit mad” Cruella in her signature black-and-white clothing, hair and styling.
Cruella follows Estelle De Vil, a young fashion designer in 1970s London. The young designer falls in love with dog fur, especially the dalmatian kind, and becomes more and more bitter and evil for currently unclear reasons until she turns into the well-known villain Cruella.
Cruella is helmed by Craig Gillespie, who recently directing the successful biopic I, Tonya that saw Allison Janney win an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Academy Award-winning actress Emma Stone will be accompanied by Emma Thompson, Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, Emily Beecham and Mark Strong. The film will also be executive produced by Glenn Close, who played Cruella De Vil in Disney’s 1996 live-action remake of One Hundred and One Dalmatians.
Disney is also set to release Marvel’s Black Widow during the summer of 2021.
Cruella is set to be released on 28 May, 2021.
