In keeping with their "origins story" villains theme, Disney released the first trailer for "Cruella," starring Emma Stone. May I just say, the Oscar winner is brilliant in it. As the caption on the trailer declares, she's "brilliant. Bad. A little bit mad."
Not much is given away, save for the fact that De Vil is...crazy. How crazy? We'll have to find out, but what I'd like to know is how Dalmatians play into the whole storyline. We'll have to wait and see.
Disney first teased images of Stone as De Vil from the 1961 animated classic in Aug. 2019; she posed with three Dalmatians as her henchmen posed in the background. People were chomping at the bit to get more of Stone's deliciously bad character.
Yesterday, the latest poster was dropped ahead of the trailer. The film, which opens in May, also stars Emma Thompson, Joel Fry ("Game of Thrones"), Jamie Demetriou ("Fleabag," "The Great") and Mark Strong.
