I am so excited about the forthcoming release of Disney’s Cruella planned for 28 May 2021. Fingers crossed this will go ahead. The trailer looks so good and Emma Stone in the punk role version of Cruella de Vil, the super villain in classic 101 Dalmatians, seems perfect.
Emma Stone’s big puppy eyes combined with the cruel grim dictated by the character as well as the Seventies fashion in London is a charming mix.
Academy Award® winner Emma Stone (La La Land) stars in Disney’s Cruella, an all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil.
Cruella, which is set in 1970s London 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 (Howards End, Sense & Sensibility).
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.
Other stars include PAUL WALTER HAUSER, EMILY BEECHAM, JOEL FRY, KIRBY HOWELL-BAPTISTE and MARK STRONG.
Disney’s Cruella is directed by Craig Gillespie (I Tonya) and produced by Andrew Gunn (Freaky Friday), Marc Platt (Mary Poppins Returns) and Kristin Burr (Christopher Robin), with Emma Stone and Michelle Wright (Baby Driver) serving as executive producers. Two-time Oscar®- winning costume designer Jenny Beavan (Mad Max: Fury Road, A Room with a View) creates the dazzling and imaginative costumes, which take on a life of their own.
