Cruella, which is set in late 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella's flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by two-time Oscar® winner Emma Thompson ("Howards End", "Sense & Sensibility"). But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable, and revenge-bent Cruella.
Cruella was born on August 7th, 1952, with half-black and half-white hair. She was labeled an outcast because of her looks and struggled to fit into the societal norm. Her fashion talent was evident at a young age, though her mother, Catherine Miller, tried to make her work with a pattern as opposed to free-hand. The young Estella refused to accept this course of action. In 1964, she attended primary school where her mother urged her to put aside her bad side, which she had named “Cruella”, and instead, embraced Estella. This didn't last long as Estella refused to be bullied or fit into the crowds. She made one friend, Anita Darling, whose name she admired. The students rebelled against Estella and dropped her into a dumpster. It was here that she met a stray dog whom she adopted and named Buddy. Estella quickly became a problem child with multiple blemishes on her school record. The rule-breaking reached a point where her mother, to keep Estella's record clean, withdrew her from sc...Emma Stone as Estella Von Hellman/Estella Miller/Cruella De VilEmma Thompson as Baroness Von HellmanJoel Fry as Jasper BadunPaul Walter Hauser as Horace Badun
Glenn Close, Andrew Gunn, Aline Brosh McKenna, and Marc Platt will serve as producers of the film. McKenna was also hired as the writer of the film; in October 2015, she was replaced by Kelly Marcel, who also wrote the screenplay for Saving Mr. Banks. This is not the first time 101 Dalmatians was adapted in live-action. The 1996 film and its sequelwere the first two. The film itself is an origin story for the character Cruella De Vil, hence making it a prequel to the 101 Dalmatians story. However, as the film is live action, it's not to be considered canon to 101 Dalmatians. In January 2016, it was reported that Emma Stone is in negotiations to play Cruella. In April 2016, Disney confirmed that she would indeed play the character.She would also serve as an executive producer. In December 2016, Alex Timbers was confirmed to direct the film. However, it was announced that Timbers would no longer be directing Cruella due to scheduling conflicts and was replaced by the I, Tonya director...
