Walt Disney Studios has released a new clip from the upcoming Cruella, a live-action dramedy that will serve as an origin story for the infamous villain from the 101 Dalmatians franchise. The film is currently scheduled to be released both theatrically and on Disney+ on May 28.
Set in 1970s London, Cruella tells the origin story of the Disney villain, picking up when she was a creative and inspired young fashion designer named Estella (Emma Stone). Her creations catch the eye of the Baroness von Hellman (Emma Thompson) and things go badly, which is when Estella becomes Cruella. As the film’s release date draws closer, more and more trailers have been released–this first clip gives a great sense of the movie’s actual tone uninterrupted. Check it out below.
Cruella is directed by I, Tonya’s Craig Gillespie and includes Glenn Close–who played Cruella in the live-action 101 Dalmatians movies–as an executive producer. Costumes are obviously very important for Cruella, and Disney hired Oscar-winning costume designer Jenny Beavan (Mad Max: Fury Road) to work on Cruella.
