Disney Teases Emma Stone Playing Infamous Villain In ‘Cruella’


Disney to feature villain origin story of Cruella DeVil

Emma Stone takes a walk on the dark side with her new role as villain Cruella DeVil in the upcoming live-action “Cruella” movie. The Disney villain from “One Hundred and One Dalmatians” will be starring in her own origin film that explores the development of Cruella becoming a villain.

The movie is set in 1970s London with teenage Cruella (then known as Estella) wanting to follow her dreams to become a fashion designer showing ambition, talent, and innovation. Estella’s experienced a rough childhood being an orphan at the age of 12 and the story picks up four years later when Estella runs into her best friends/partners in crime, Jasper and Horace (two amateur thieves.)

A chance encounter introduces Estella to the world of the young rich and famous of London society, leading to her wondering whether she is destined for more in life. Estella meets a young rockstar who commissions her to design him a signature piece leading Estella to feel she’s truly arrived in London society.

Estella develops her new persona Cruella as she chases after her dreams despite making enemies in the process but she works her mischief to get what she wants in true Cruella fashion. The “Cruella” movie was based on the previous Disney adaptations featured a live-action movie in 1996 and appearing again in the 2000 sequel of “One Hundred and One Dalmatians.”

Glenn Close starred in the original roles as Cruella DeVil and will be working as a producer of the new “Cruella” movie. “Cruella” will also feature a star-studded cast including Emma Thompson (The Baroness), Mark Strong (The Baron), Paul Walker Hauser (Horace), Joel Fry (Jasper), Emily Beechman (Anita), and Dev Patel (Raj).

Since the release of the trailer, fans are comparing “Cruella” to other leading villain films including Disney’s “Maleficent” as well as being compared to the Disney version of The Joker and Harley Quinn from “Suicide Squad.” Much like “Maleficient,” the new villain movie will focus on recontextualizing characters for the audience to understand how benevolent, caring people can turn to the dark side.

Craig Gillespie will be directing “Cruella” for an over-the-top live-action origin story of the villain hailing from London. “Cruella” is slated for a cinematic release on May 28 and will be an adventurous origin story of a classic Disney villain.
