I feel like most people know Cruella’s story. Or they at least know that she’s one of the Disney villains that is legitimately crazy. When the official trailer dropped it got tons of mixed reactions. The reactions ranged from “Yassssss” to “Was this a Disney trailer?”. This new sneak peek of Cruella shows us just a little bit more of where they are taking her origin story this go around. Watch the new sneak peek of Disney’s Cruella below and let me know what you think!
Disney’s Cruella Sneak Peak
I absolutely love that they are embracing every bit of Cruella’s fashionable side. Fashion IS her story and I can’t wait to see how Estella and the Baroness get into trouble. Everyone keeps saying how Emma Stone has big shoes to fill behind Glen Close’s Cruella. I think that she is definitely going to hold her own. The biggest problem with live-action Disney movies is that they are always compared to SOMETHING. Whether that be the animation, or a previously done live action people rarely give them the opportunity to stand on their own. I am hoping and optimistic about this version of Cruella de Vil’s story. I am just hoping that they embrace her full villain. The costumes already look like they are going to be AMAZING.
About Disney’s Cruella
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.
