About Disney’s Cruella
Brilliant. Bad. A little bit mad. Academy Award winner Emma Stone (La La Land) stars in Disney’s Cruella, an all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil.
The film set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella. Clever and creative, the determined girl makes a name for herself with her designs. She also befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief. Together they build a life for themselves on the London streets.
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 two-time Oscar winner Emma Thompson (Howards End, Sense & Sensibility).
However, their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that causes Estella to embrace her wicked side. As the result of this, she soon transforms into the raucous, fashionable, and revenge-bent Cruella.
Disney’s Cruella is directed by Craig Gillespie (I Tonya) from a screenplay by Dana Fox and Tony McNamara, story by Aline Brosh McKenna and Kelly Marcel & Steve Zissis. The film also features costume design by Two-time Oscar-winner Jenny Beavan (Mad Max: Fury Road, A Room with a View). As seen via the film’s trailer Cruella will boast dazzling and imaginative costumes, which take on a life of their own.
