It is a cruel world out beyond, and it seems like Emma Stone is all set to face it head-on. The Academy Award-winning star is ready to star in Disney’s next live-action conversion. It focuses on the iconic 101 Dalmatians villain. The movie, titled Cruella, gives the villain a live-action origin story, and it’s set to hit-on this spring. On Tuesday, Disney eventually revealed the first promotional material for Cruella in the form of the movie’s official teaser poster.
The poster features Stone’s Cruella front and square, enrobing the classic two-tone hairstyle in front of a black backdrop. The name is written in red color in front of the star. Additionally to the poster release, Disney also affirmed that the initial trailer for Cruella would be delivered on Wednesday, the 17th of Feb.
At this time, it is still planning to release Cruella in theaters on Memorial Day Weekend. With that stated, everything in the age of COVID is fluid, and things could change anytime between now and May. The trailer itself could reveal a new launch date of the film. Fans query if films like Cruella will get a similar release plan as Raya and the Last Dragon, which puts the recent Disney Animation movie on Disney plus the same day it’s in theaters. Nevertheless, the Premier Access option on the streaming service will cost 30 dollars.
Stone stars in this film beside Mark Strong, Emma Thompson, Paul Walter Hauser, Joel Fry, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, and also Emily Beecham. The movie is directed by I Tonya’s Craig Gillespie, with Tony McNamara and Dana Fox’s screenplay. One Hundred and One Dalmatians was well-written by Dodie Smith. Currently, Cruella is slated to be released on the 28th of May.
Rumors roamed late 2020 that Cruella could hit Disney Plus as the industry’s state remains in confusion. However, with the trailer hit the internet and received lots of admiration, it looks like the studio is set on the May release date, despite whether that means a release on Disney Plus.
Stone stated, “I was inspired by Glenn Close, who portrayed Cruella in Disney’s lovely adaptation.” In an interview with ET during the premiere of “Zombieland: Double Tap,” she also added that she loved the original animated films for such a long time.
