Get Ready For Cruella!

The one and only punk rock queen from the original 1996 movie 101 Dalmations, Cruella De Vil, who has had us divided from hating her for her iconic villainess and loving her for her signature styles is back with Cruella and seems to be better.

After introducing her in the original 1961 classic 101 Dalmatians and then tapping Glenn Close to portray her in the 1996 reboot, Disney has decided to give the timeless tale another run giving Emma Stone the honours of transforming into the classic villain.

Now since spilling drops of tea on what's to be expected is our thing in this house, the live-action prequel will explore Cruella, a young grifter named Estella at birth who is clever, creative and determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She starts out as a designer but turns into a woman whose obsessed with wearing a coat made of puppy skin. 

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. 

The cast also includes Mark Strong, Emily Beecham, Jamie Demetriou and Kirby Howell-Baptiste. Their roles are being kept under wraps for now, but Mark Strong has been teasing what to expect from the movie.

"What the film does, which is brilliant, is try to throw a light on where the Cruella that we think we know has come from. It's a development story, as you see Cruella grow into the Cruella de Vil that we know and love to hate," he explained to Collider.

Disney released the first trailer for the prequel movie on February 17 which showcased Stone being evil to the bone.

There's a chance that Cruellalike Mulan, will head straight to the streaming service Disney+. Or, it will premiere in theaters and join Disney+ at a later date.

The movie is set for a late-spring release on May 28, 2021. Because who doesn’t want puppies in springtime?
