Disney has debuted the first trailer for the live-action Cruella starring Emma Stone as the black and white glad villain in her pre-villainous youth.
Set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, the film follows a young grifter named Estella (Stone), 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.
Directed by Craig Gillespie, the film stars Emma Stone, Emma Thompson, Paul Walter Hauser, Emily Beacham, Joel Fry, Kirby Howell-Baptiste and Mark Strong.
