Disney has unveiled the brand new poster for the live-action prequel ‘Cruella’, based on the rebellious early days of the iconic villain Cruella de Vil.
The film is set in 1970s London, reportedly amidst the punk rock revolution, which explains the black and white photo with the title in a red splash and circle-a anarchy symbol.
Also confirmed is the fact that we’re finally going to get a trailer for the long-teased film, along with a number of the main cast, which includes legendary Brits Emma Thompson and Mark Strong.

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. Cruella, which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, 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. 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”). 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’s “Cruella” is directed by Craig Gillespie and produced by Andrew Gunn, Marc Platt and Kristin Burr, with Emma Stone and Michelle Wright serving as executive producers.
The film is set for release on May 28, 2021
