Based on the villain of the 1961 classic 101 Dalmatians, plot details for Cruella have yet to be released, but Craig Gillespie is directing the movie, which is said to focus on the character's origins. Cruella de Vil will be the second famous Disney villain to get her own spinoff, following Maleficent in Maleficent and the upcoming Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. The movie comes amid a strong year for Disney, which has had several movies break $1 billion at the box office, including Lion King, Aladdin and Avengers: Endgame.
Stone is not the first actor to bring Cruella de Vil to live-action. She was played by Glenn Close in the 1996 live-action adaptation of the classic film.
Cruella is scheduled for release May 28, 2021. The film stars Emma Stone in the title role alongside Paul Walter Hauser and Joel Fry.
