Disney debuts all new poster and trailer for Cruella
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.
While you will have to wait until May 28th to see the film in theaters or Premier Access on Disney + you can check out the all-new poster and trailer here from Disney.
