Disney is set to release “Cruella”, the live-action prequel to “101 Dalmatians”, on Disney+ Premier Access and in cinemas on Friday, May 28th.
However, if you’re waiting until you can watch the film as part of your Disney+ subscription, Disney+ has now updated the “Cruella” page, confirming that the film will be released three months later, on Friday, August 27th.
Both previous Premier Access titles “Mulan” and “Raya and the Last Dragon” were released on Disney+ for all subscribers 3 months after it was released on Disney+ Premier Access.
Academy Award winner Emma Stone (“La La Land”) stars in Disney’s “Cruella,” an all-new live-action feature film 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 (“Howards End,” “Sense & Sensibility”). 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.
Will you be checking out “Cruella” on Premier Access or waiting until the end of August for it to be included with your Disney+ subscription?
