Emma Stone Is CRUELLA - First Trailer and Posters for the Disney Reimagining

First look at Disney's latest live action reboot.

In similar fashion to Maleficent, Cruella sees Disney take one of their iconic villains and give her an origin story. Directed by Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya), Cruella reimagines Cruella de Vil as a Joker-esque product of the 1970s London punk scene, with Emma Stone going full Bonham-Carter in the title role. Emma Thompson, Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, Emily Beecham and Mark Strong also star.

Cruella is set for a May release, presumably in cinemas but who knows at this point?

Check out the first trailer and a pair of posters below.

The official synopsis reads:

Academy Award® winner Emma Stone (“La La Land”) stars in Disney’s “Cruella,” 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. “Cruella,” which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, 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 (“Howards End,” “Sense & Sensibility”). 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.
