Sorry, dog lovers, but one bad b*tch is coming to break your hearts. Emma Stone is now in production on Cruella, a live-action prequel to the 1961 animated classic 101 Dalmations. During D23, Disney unveiled the much-anticipated first look at Stone gone de Vil. And despite early naysayers, this look did not disappoint.


Here’s what Twitter users had to say about Disney’s latest villainess:

While there was plenty of praise, some say how very dare Stone think she can compare to Glenn Close’s diva de Vil from Disney’s 1996 live-action adaption.

I get the affection for Close’s campy Cruella, but Stone and company—which includes co-stars Joel Fry, Walter Hauser, and Pajiba 10 member Emma Thompson—have something very different in-store. Cruella will unveil the origin story of the villainess so bad she has her own theme song. However, it has a script penned in part by Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Aline Brosh McKenna, and Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya) at the helm. So we suspect this will be a more empathetic angle on this notorious dame, in the vein of 2014’s Maleficent. And that’s not all. According to Stone, who appeared via video to D23, “It’s 1970 and set in London, and it’s punk rock.”

What does “punk rock” mean when we’re talking Disney? We’ll find out when Cruella hits theaters May 28, 2021.
