Disney’s latest live-action film, “Cruella,” offers a fresh take on one of the studio’s most infamous animated villains. The film focuses on Cruella de Vil from the “101 Dalmatians” franchise and tells the story of how she became the character audiences have come to know on screen.
“Cruella,” starring Oscar-winning actress Emma Stone, is now in theaters and on Disney Plus on May 28 via Premier Access. Premier Access requires subscribers to pay an extra $30 one-time fee in order to watch a movie at home while it’s still playing on the big screen.
The film is set in 1970s London and follows a young woman, Estella (Emma Stone), whose “flair for fashion” earns the attention of Baroness von Hellman, according to the film’s official synopsis. But the relationship between the two spurs Estella to “embrace her wicked side” and become the “raucous, fashionable, and revenge-bent” Cruella de Vil.
