A ‘Cruella‘ Sequel is Now In Development at Disney. Cruella de Vil is far from done, darlings! Disney is loving the response to their latest live-action film and has already ordered a sequel to the hit film. The news is very exciting for Cruella fans, and the excitement doesn’t stop there. A spokesperson for Disney stated:
“We are very pleased with ‘Cruella’s’ box office success, in conjunction with its strong Disney Plus Premier Access performance to date. The film has been incredibly well received by audiences around the world, with a 97% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes in addition to A’s in every demographic from CinemaScore on opening weekend, ranking it among the most popular of our live-action reimaginings. We look forward to a long run as audiences continue to enjoy this fantastic film.”
“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 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.“
It is currently unknown if the original cast will return for the film, but it hard to imagine the sequel moving forward without their leading lady (Emma Stone) and spot-on support cast! Director Craig Gillespie and screenwriter Tony McNamara have already signed on to return for Cruella 2. Disney has yet to share if the film will receive a theatrical release or premiere exclusively on Disney+ when the time comes.
