CRUELLA: Emma Stone Debuts As A "Punk Rock" Version Of The Iconic 101 DALMATIANS Villain

Set in the 1970's, Disney's Cruella will feature the iconic villain in a look unlike that of which we've ever seen her in. Check out the first look at Emma Stone as the titular villain from the film.

Disney's live-action adaptations have been known to go down some interesting creative paths and director Craig Gillespie's Cruella will seemingly do the same.

Disney unveiled the first look at Emma Stone in the title role of the upcoming live-action prequel, and a spin on the classic 101 Dalmatians story. The Oscar-winning actress will, of course, play Cruella de Vil — a younger version of the titular villain. And she looks absolutely stunning in the part.

It's a far cry from the gaudy versions of Cruella we've seen in the 1961 animated movie and again by Glenn Close in the 1996 live-action adaptation. In both the original novel and subsequent adaptations, Cruella is typically depicted as snobbish and glamorous; however, her punk rock look in this movie seems to be much more in line and inspired by the1970's era, London setting that it'll take place in. 

We still don't know the actual plot of Cruella, only that it'll tell the story of the character before we first met her in the original animated movie 101 Dalmatians

Standing alongside Stone is Paul Walter Hauser and Joel Fry, who play her bumbling henchmen Horace and Jasper, respectively. Also starrin gin the movie, but not pictured in the photo is Emma Thompson.

Cruella is the latest in a long line of Disney live-action adaptations, following in the steps of Beauty and the Beast (2017), The Lion King (2019), and Aladdin (2019). While there have been a few duds along the way, Disney has typically found success at the box office with them more often than not. Looking ahead, Disney has Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, the live-action sequel about the iconic Sleeping Beauty villain, arriving in theaters in October, followed by a live-action Mulan in March 2020.

Cruella was originally planned for a 2020 release, but a delay means it will now hit theaters on May 28, 2021.
