Hello, cruel world. And hello to a new Cruella De Vil.
Yesterday Disney released a poster featuring Emma Stone as the iconic villainess. Today, we’re being treated to the trailer. Check it out below!
When the poster dropped, I said it gave me Hot Topic vibes – which isn’t really what I think Disney is going for here.
Luckily, the trailer offers a lot of new insight into the upcoming live-action 101 Dalmatians prequel/Cruella origin story. Now it’s clear we’re going to see the fashion world collide with Cruella’s unique(?) personality. Actually, a better comparison seems to be this: Cruella is Disney’s Harley Quinn.
It’s a combination of the explosive personality and the literal explosions, probably. And the self-professed craziness.
The trailer reminds me of Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey meets The Devil Wears Prada. I don’t think Harley would handle being an assistant too well, and I’m guessing we can expect a similar chaos from Cruella.
Cruella looks quite stylized and high-fashion. I’m predicting a whole lot of 2021 Halloween costumes spawning from this flick.
So, what did you think of this first look? Are you excited to watch? Let us know in the comments.
If the trailer has you hyped, you don’t have too long to wait. Cruella releases May 28.
Until then, check back to THS for more updates.
