Disney announces Cruella on 4K Ultra, Blu-ray and DVD
In my opinion Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmations is easily one of the most evil characters in the Disney filmography. She was always horrifically perfect to look at but the fact she was all about killing dogs just cemented her badness. Back in 1996 Glenn Close brought the character to perfect life in the live action adaptation of 101 Dalmations. Now Disney is taking us back to her beginnings in Cruella with Emma Stone stepping into the role.
Cruella follows 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. 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.
In addition to the film this release offers up bonus content including bloopers, a gag reel and numerous featurettes that take you behind bringing this origin tale to life. Step into the diabolical world of fashion when Cruella hits digital on June 25th and then on 4K Ultra, Blu-ray and DVD on September 21st from Disney Home Entertainment.
