The Walt Disney Company has released a featurette, Becoming Cruella, showcasing the screen’s most notoriously fashionable bad girl. Watch Emma Stone as she explores the origin story of the legendary villain, Cruella de Vil. Disney also released five new character posters for the upcoming feature that’s set to hit theaters and Disney+​ with Premier Access on May 28.

Cruella is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution. The film 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 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. 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.

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. It is produced by Andrew Gunn (Freaky Friday), Marc Platt (Mary Poppins Returns) and Kristin Burr (Christopher Robin), with Stone, Michelle Wright, Jared LeBoff and Glenn Close serving as executive producers. Oscar winning costume designer Jenny Beavan (Mad Max: Fury Road, A Room with a View) creates the dazzling and imaginative costumes, which take on a life of their own.
