The Queen of Mean gets an official movie rating of PG-13. The next major live-action Disney film is Cruella, which hits theaters on May 28, 2021.
Academy Award winner Emma Stone (“La La Land”) stars in the live-action Disney’s Cruella. A feature film about the rebellious early days of one of Disney’s most notorious villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. Cruella takes place during 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution. The story follows a young Estella, a 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. 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 (Emma Thompson). She’s a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute. 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.
Disney’s Cruella is directed by Craig Gillespie (“I Tonya”) from a screenplay by Dana Fox and Tony McNamara, story by Aline Brosh McKenna and Kelly Marcel & Steve Zissis. It was produced by Andrew Gunn (“Freaky Friday”), Marc Platt (“Mary Poppins Returns”) and Kristin Burr (“Christopher Robin”), with Emma Stone, Michelle Wright, Jared LeBoff and Glenn Close serving as executive producers. Two-time Oscar- winning costume designer Jenny Beavan (“Mad Max: Fury Road,” “A Room with a View”) creates the dazzling and imaginative costumes, which take on a life of their own.
