Set for release next month, Disney’s live-action film Cruella is something of a punk rock origin story for the classic 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella de Vil, with Academy Award winner Emma Stone in the title role. The film will be released both in theaters and on Disney+ on the same day, May 28, and Disney has released a brand new second trailer this morning.
Cruella will be available via Premier Access on Disney+, which will cost $30 at home.
Does Cruella have that killer instinct required to be a Disney villain?
Watch the new trailer below to find out…
The all-new live-action feature film is about 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, played by two-time Oscar® winner Emma Thompson. 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.
Disney’s Cruella is directed by Craig Gillespie (I Tonya) from a screenplay by Dana Fox and Tony McNamara, story by Aline Brosh McKenna and Kelly Marcel & Steve Zissis.
