Cruella Is Literally On Fire In First Trailer For The Emma Stone Movie
See Emma Stone as Cruella de Vil in the live-action origin of the famous Disney villain.
Disney's live-action take on the 101 Dalmations villain Cruella de Vil has finally received its first trailer. The film is set to release on May 28 and is yet to be rated.
The upcoming movie will dive into the origin of the woman who wanted to make a coat from the skins of over 100 puppies. Of course, the film will take place in London, and it looks as through Cruella has some competition for "most sociopathic person in the city." Check it out below.
And yes, she sets herself on fire at a fancy party to reveal a non-flammable dress. But that's pretty punk rock, right? Speaking of punk, according to Disney, the movie is set during the punk rock revolution of the 1970s and the film follows a grifter named Estella, who would eventually become Cruella, played by Emma Stone (La La Land).
Estella is a designer who wants to make a name for herself. "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," reads the official description for the movie. "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."
Hellman is played by Oscar winner Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility, Saving Mr. Banks) and the film also features Mark Strong (Kingsman), Paul Walter Hauser (I, Tonya), Emily Beecham (Outside the Wire), Joel Fry (Yesterday), and more. Cruella is directed by Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya) featuring a script from Dana Fox and Tony McNamara, and Aline Brosh McKenna, Kelly Marcel, and Steve Zissis.
While the movie arrives this May, it is unknown at this time how it will arrive. Disney is planning on releasing Black Widow weeks earlier in theaters, but that could change. Cruella could get pushed back to a later date depending on the pandemic. There has been rumors the film could go to Disney+, but there is no concrete info about that as of this writing.
