Emma Stone as Cruella

Originally announced in 2019, Emma Stone will be the next live-action Cruella. Disney dropped the first movie poster today, ahead of tomorrow’s trailer. Disney’s modern live-action remakes have been lackluster, to me, but maybe this will be better. The movie is a prequel about early Cruella in 1970s punk rock London.

I do like Emma Stone, so it will be interesting to see how she plays Cruella. Glenn Close’s Cruella is impeccable; I have to prepare myself for something neither better nor worse, just different.

Bonus links: Variety‘s interview between Pete Davidson and Glenn Close. Vanity Fair‘s interview with Glenn Close about the costumes. She has deep respect for the costumers and other professionals she collaborates with, and the foresight to contractually own her Cruella pieces is pretty amazing.
