Walt Disney Studios has announced that it will be releasing the first trailer for the upcoming live-action 101 Dalamitans prequel movie “Cruella”.
Cruella dives into the rebellious early days of one of the most notorious—and notoriously fashionable—villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. Oscar-winner Emma Stone stars as Estella, aka Cruella, opposite Oscar winner Emma Thompson as the Baroness, the head of a prestigious fashion house who plucks Estella from obscurity as a burgeoning designer. It’s set against the backdrop of 1970s punk-rock London, and director Craig Gillespie delivers a unique take on this one-of-a-kind villain.
The film is due to arrive in cinemas in May. However, there have been many rumours about the film being moved to Disney+ over the past year due to the current situation with cinemas. . Disney CEO Bob Chapek has said that they are monitoring the situation with each theatrical release, to see if the movie will also be released on Disney+ Premier Access.
It’s directed by Craig Gillespie and written by Dana Fox, Tony McNamara, Aline Brosh McKenna, Kelly Marcel, and Steve Zissis. The film also stars Emma Thompson, Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, Emily Beecham, and Mark Strong. Glenn Close, who played the titular character in the 1996 live-action remake and its sequel, also serves as an executive producer.
A poster for the film was also released ahead of the trailer’s release:
