The latest in a series of live-action adaptations is Cruella with Emma Stone playing a younger version of the character from 101 Dalmations. The movie is set in the 1970s and looks like what would happen if you inserted Harley Quinn into a Disney movie.
You can watch the full trailer below and judge for yourself:
Here’s a brief summary of what to expect:
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.
Cruella is due to come out at the cinema in May but my gut says this will be delayed due to COVID. Still, at least this movie is an original spin on the idea and not just a remake. I’m excited to go and watch it, Emma Stone is a fantastic actor and I’m almost certain this movie will be a hit.
