Cruella and more: The breakdown of live-action Disney
Emma Stone reinvents Cruella de Vil, and fans are wild for it
Disney movies often make us nostalgic, whether you're seeing them for the second time round or the hundredth time. In recent years, Disney is on a roll with their live-action remakes, and they're showing no signs of stopping!
The hottest buzz right now is around Emma Stone's reinvention of Disney's most fabulous villain: Cruella de Vil. The live-action adaptation of the animated classic '101 Dalmatians' will actually be Miss de Vil's origin story, set in the 1970s.
Disney announced a new trailer, and released a poster with a black-and-white close-up of Stone in a very glam-punk take on the nefarious fashionista, and fans cannot wait for more. Of course, Stone has big shoes to fill, as the animated film already had a 1996 live-action remake starring Glenn Close as Cruella. This new backstory, of young fashion designer Estella de Vil whose obsession for dog fur earns her the nickname of a lifetime, will be out in May.
