Cruella: Emma Stone as Punk Rock Villain in Disney’s Trailer

Emma Stone as Punk Rock Villain in Disney’s ‘Cruella’ Trailer


Disney’s live-action film, Cruella, starring Oscar-winner Emma Stone as a punk-rock version of the “101 Dalmatians” villainess, has debuted its first trailer.

The film is set to release May 28.

Stone portrays Cruella de Vil circa the 1970s, in a film about her life prior to her terrorizing the puppies of London, as was depicted in the 1961 animated original film.

Prior to the trailer’s release, Stone appeared at Disney’s D23 convention to unveil a first look at the movie — which saw her next to several dalmatians and sporting Cruella’s popular black-and-white hairstyle — and its approach to retelling the infamous character’s story.

Craig (I, Tonya) Gillespie helms “Cruella,” which is set to release in theaters.

Tony McNamara wrote the iteration of the script, and Dana Fox penned a previous draft.

Marc Platt, Kristin Burr and Andrew Gunn are producing the film, with Glenn Close, who portrayed de Vil in the 1996 live-action remake, as one of the producers.

The iconic villain and her beginnings would be seen in “Hello, Cruel Heart,” a new novel due in April from Disney Press that will serve as a prequel to the film.

Written by Maureen Johnson, the book is set in 1967 and follows a teenage girl aspiring to succeed in the fashion world–and one day will become Cruella.
