Disney have dropped a new ‘Origins’ trailer for its live-action 101 Dalmatians prequel Cruella.
Disney’s Cruella is an all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. Set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, the film follows a young grifter named Estella, who is 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. 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.
The film is directed by Craig Gillespie, and features a cast that also includes Emma Thompson, Mark Strong, Paul Walter Hauser, Joel Fry, Emily Beecham, and Kirby Howell-Baptiste.
Cruella will land in cinemas and on Disney+ with Premier Access on May 28th, 2021.
