Cruella comes into her own in the newest trailer for Disney’s upcoming live-action villain origin story. Check it out now!
Who was Cruella DeVil before she became the iconic villain we first met in 101 Dalmatians? That’s the question that Disney’s newest live-action feature.
Cruella finds Oscar winner Emma Stone breathing new life into the villain by catching up with the titular baddie when she’s simply Estella— a clever and creative young grifter simply looking to break into the world of fashion.
But Estella’s life slowly starts falling apart at the seams when she finds herself studying under the cold and callus Baroness von Hellman (played by Academy Award winner Emma Thompson).
“Let me give you some advice, you can’t care about anyone else. Everyone else is an obstacle,” says the Baroness at the beginning of the trailer. “You have the talent, whether you have the killer instinct is the big question.”
