In the age of live action Disney remakes, it’s hard not to get really excited about the new take on one of your old favorites. For example, all of us here absolutely loved seeing Emma Watson take on Belle in Beauty and the Beast. Now, we’re gearing up for a new spin of one of our favorite Disney movies, 101 Dalmatians.
When we heard that our other favorite Emma, Emma Stone, is portraying one of the best villains in the history of Disney movies, Cruella De Vil, we could not contain our excitement. While we still have quite a bit of time before the movie comes out in May 2021, it’s still really exciting news.
At the D23 Expo held in Anaheim, California, Disney first revealed the photo of Stone as Cruella De Vil, which is simply amazing. The film, aptly called, Cruella, is an adaptation of the original 101 Dalmatians that will focus on the villain’s story. With the oscar-winning Stone as the titular character, the movie will be similar to Maleficent, giving us a look into the villain’s perspective of the story. This is our chance to learn more about the fur-obsessed antagonist.
Fans of the original film won’t be disappointed, as Stone’s version of the character features her signature two toned black and white hair. She holds on to three Dalmatians and is flanked by her evil henchmen.
We simply can’t wait until the movie comes out, and we’ve already started counting down the days until May 28th, 2021. Are you excited?
