'Cruella' will focus on history of the deadly villain
The upcoming movie gives fans a detailed insight into the past of the main villain of 101 Dalmatians, where Cruella de Vil harbors the deadly desire of making a fur coat out of the skin of Dalmatian puppies.
It was suggested that the movie will release on Disney+ directly but it's now poised for a theatrical release on May 28.
Stone had teased about the film at D23 Expo 2019
Stone raised the hype around the film during its first-look release at the D23 expo in 2019.
"Since you're such huge Disney fans, we wanted to let you know a bit about the story," the La La Land star had said. "1970s set in London, it's punk rock," she added.
The movie is directed by Craig Gilespie, who had helmed 2017's I, Tonya.
Glenn Close is attached to 'Cruella' as executive producer
The film also stars Emily Beecham, Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, and Mark Strong.
Stone had been in talks for the iconic role since 2016, as per a report in The Hollywood Reporter.
Actor Glenn Close, who had immortalized the role of Cruella in 101 Dalmatians (1996), is an executive producer for the 2021 film, who inspires Stone in this prequel.
