Disney has released a poster for Cruella ahead of a trailer for the film arriving on Wednesday. The poster reveals Emma Stone’s look as Cruella ahead of the film’s arrival in May. Cruella is a prequel to the animated 101 Dalmations and takes place much earlier in the life of Cruella. It will tell the story of a young Cruella de Vil at the beginning of her career as a fashion designer. This is the time when she becomes obsessed with puppies, and their skins. It will basically be an origin story for the villain that the world has come to known.
Emma Stone as Cruella will be joined by Emma Thompson as the Baroness, who is the head of a well known fashion house in London. Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, Emily Beecham, and Mark Strong are also a part of the cast. Cruella is being directed by Craig Gillespie, who earned several Oscar nominations for I, Tonya in 2018.

This is not the first time that the 101 Dalmations story has gotten the live action treatment. In 1996, a live-action remake of the original was made with Glenn Close as Cruella. She returned to the character four years later for a sequel. Cruella will take a different approach and go the prequel route.
