If we’re being honest, when I first learned that Emma Stone would be starring in Cruella, I wasn’t sure that she could pull off the role. I felt like she was too kind and pulling off a character as ummm… mean and dynamic as Cruella, I just didn’t see it.
And I was wrong.
The actress is playing Cruella De Vil and the sneak peek looks amazing. I will say judging by the trailer and this sneak peek, Emma is the only person that could pull this off. It looks so good.
Here’s a synopsis: “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, 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, played by two-time 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.”
