Hello cruel world and hello Disney+ subscribers. If you didn’t catch Cruella in theaters (or pay for Premier Access to stream it), your time has come. The film will officially arrive on Disney+ for all subscribers Friday, August 27.
Set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, Cruella follows a young grifter named Estella, 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. Then together they 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 (Oscar winner Emma Thompson). 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.
If you don’t have Disney+ or just prefer hard-copy media, you’ll have the chance to own Cruella on DVD and 4K UHD Blu-ray soon. Three special edition releases hit stores September 21. You can find out more about those here.
Plus, you can expect to see more of Stone’s Cruella in the future. The actor recently signed a deal with Disney to appear in a sequel film.
So, will you hit play on Cruella this weekend? Let us know in the comments.
