As teased yesterday, Walt Disney Studios has unveiled the brand new trailer and another new poster for the upcoming 101 Dalmations prequels, focusing on the backstory of the iconic villain Cruella de Vil.
Following Maleficent, it’s interesting to see Disney fully committing to the character as a villain, which lead Emma Stone appears to revel in. The trailer is hugely stylish, with Stone decked out in the two tone hair, leaning into her more nefarious side which she did so well in The Favourite.
The film is set in 1970s London, reportedly amidst the punk rock revolution, hence the vibe of the new poster.
Check out the trailer and poster below:

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
