There may not be 101 dalmatians, but there are two Emmas.
Emma Stone and Emma Thompson star in Walt Disney Studios’ Cruella, the live-action origin story of the iconic Disney villain.
Un-associated with the 1990s comedies starring Glenn Close in the same role, Emma Stone plays Estella, a young woman with a penchant for mischief who transforms into the black-and-white dalmatian-hunting diva.
Set in 1970s London against the backdrop of the emerging punk rock scene, Emma Thompson co-stars as the Baroness, a rich woman whose elitist cruelty apparently helps push Estella over the edge into her full-blown Cruella persona.
Directed by Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya) and co-written by Tony McNamara (The Favourite, the Oscar-winning film in which Emma Stone co-starred), Cruella opens on May 28, 2021.
Currently slated for theaters, Disney Plus may offer Cruella day-and-date on Disney Plus if movie-houses aren’t fully operational by the end of May. If so, expect the streamer to require a $30 Premier Access fee in addition to the regular subscription rate.
