The Walt Disney Company has dropped the all-new official trailer and poster for its upcoming live-action feature film Cruella, starring Oscar winners Emma Stone and Emma Thompson, directed by Craig Gillespie.
The film is based on the notorious and legendary character Cruella De Vil, introduced in Dodie Smith’s 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians and Disney’s 1961 classic animated film, 101 Dalmatians.
Set in the 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 are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets.
The description reads further: 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, played by Thompson. 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.
Disney will release Cruella possibly in May 2021. It will also arrive in Indian theatres soon.
