The first look at Disney’s live-action film Cruella has been unveiled during D23 Expo.

Emma Stone will be playing the iconic villain in a film about her early days before 101 Dalmatians. As revealed by Emma via video during the presentation, the film is set in the 1970’s punk rock era.

Disney has released a picture of Emma channelling Cruella and we’re already more than excited. Armed with three dalmatians on leads, Emma looks frighteningly fierce as the villain as she embraces a dark look. We also get the first glimpse at her henchmen Horace and Jasper.

Directed by Craig Gillespie, the film also stars Emma Thompson, Paul Walter Hauser, and Joel Fry. Marc Platt, Kristin Burr and Andrew Gunn are producing the film.

A live action Cruella de Vil movie was first confirmed back in 2011 and Emma has been attached to the project since 2016. Cruella will finally be released in cinemas on May 28, 2021.
