Cruella: New Image And Details Revealed For Upcoming Disney Movie

That hairstyle is looking "ruff" and Cruella is "barking" up the wrong tree... Get it? Dogs.

10 Comments

At D23, we learned about plenty about Disney's upcoming movies, including Jungle Cruise, Star Wars: Episode 9, Marvel's Black Widow, and more. However, one big surprise came from the details to the 101 Dalmatians prequel. We got to see what Cruella DeVille would look like in the upcoming live-action movie.

Starring Emma Stone as the titular character, those that attended the movies panel on Saturday at the Disney convention learned a bit more about the movie, which won't hit theaters until 2021, on the 50th anniversary of the animated classic, 101 Dalmatians.

No Caption Provided

Fans got their first look at Stone from the set, complete with the half-black, half-white hair, which you can see above. In a behind-the-scenes video filmed by Stone for the D23 crowd, she revealed the movie would be set in 1960s London. Stone appeared on screen, discussing the film, while yelling at a poor dog off screen. Emma Thompson, Stone's co-star in the film, was also mentioned. However, details about her character have yet to be revealed. There have been rumors she'll be playing Baroness, but as to who or what that character is, no one knows at this time.

We'll learn more in the upcoming year, but Cruella is still a ways off, as it won't be released theatrically until May 28, 2021.

D23 was a huge weekend for news, as those in attendance got to see eight minutes of footage of the upcoming Tom Holland/Chris Pretty Pixar movie, Onward. Additionally, we learned a lot more about plenty of Disney+ TV series, including the Star Wars shows The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan. As for Marvel, three new Disney+ TV series were announced at the convention She-Hulk, Moon Knight, and Ms. Marvel.

Mat, I don’t recognize your name so maybe you’re new to Gamespot, so lemme give you a quick rundown on how to better approach an article like this. Try for a more attention grabbing headline like, “Lack of Diversity in Stills for Upcoming Disney Flick is Problematic”. You gotta get them rage clicks, know what I mean? Then you gotta get people engaged in the comments section OR better yet, write something like, “It’s disheartening to see a film in 2019 perpetuate the idea that animals are a commodity simply put on earth for the amusement of the straight white patriarchy and that any woman put in a position of wealth and power is inherently twisted and evil” and then DISABLE comments!! That’s...that’s how things work around here.

But...they’ve already done a live-action 101 Dalmatians. Glenn Close? Jeff Daniels? Hugh friggin Laurie? Ring any bells?

I don’t know why I’m even trying to speak sense to a blatant cash grab campaign. I guess I’m wondering if they think we forgot that one existed.

Why do movie makers always choose hot women to play ugly characters?

And how do you make an entire movie surrounding a dog skin obsessed woman? Is this going to be a bloody horror movie?

Odd concept.

Ok Maleficent makes sense, it's simple enough to humanize a villian when her main thing is "I'm really fucking evil!" because all you gotta do is give her a backstory.

But how TF do you humanize a person whos main goal in her movie is "I WANT TO KILL AND SKIN 101 PUPPIES AND TURN THEM INTO A COAT!"? That is a universally reviled act, what are you gonna do show her parents mauled by a couple dogs which plants her seething desire for puppy coats? I am seriously curious how they attempt to make her sympathetic.

@jasperwest: We could say the same for The Joker himself in his upcoming standalone film as well. It's hard to feel sorry for a villain who is really evil but yet feel sympathetic at the same time.

@davillain-: The Joker is a character easy enough to create a backstory for, he's simply just insane and evil. But when you give a character a evil motivation like killing and skinning puppies then try to justify that motivation by giving her a traumatic backstory it becomes challenging.

Imagine a villains motivation is "**** kids, I hate them, I'm going to burn down schools" now you can give that character a backstory and show them being bullied and harassed as a child. But ultimately the remaining element is a grown human being is burning down schools and murdering children.The added backstory isn't going to humanize the character, because what they're doing is still reprehensible on a near universal scale.

Will this be like Maleficent, where we look for ways to shift blame for why she's evil?

Emma Stone as Cruella DeVille looks really stunning but I still don't see the point remaking 101 Dalmatians when there's already like 2 live remakes already and the first remake was really good back in the late 90's. Waste of resource when the other remake was more accurate to the animation.

@davillain-: Because Disney they are running out of ideas.
