Emma Stone and Emma Thompson star in the live-action adventure about the early days of fashionable villain, Cruella de Vil; film simultaneously hits theaters and Disney+ with Premier Access on May 28.
The Walt Disney Company has released a new trailer and poster for its all-new live-action feature film, Cruella, starring Academy Award-winners Emma Stone and Emma Thompson, and directed by Craig Gillespie. The film will release simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ with Premier Access for a one-time additional fee on Friday, May 28.
The film focuses on the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. Cruella. Set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, Cruella 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 Gillespie (I Tonya) and produced by Andrew Gunn (Freaky Friday), Marc Platt (Mary Poppins Returns), and Kristin Burr (Christopher Robin), with Stone and Michelle Wright (Baby Driver) 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.
