D23 Expo: First look at Emma Stone as Cruella de Vil in 101 Dalmatians prequel

101 Dalmatians - Cruella de Vil

To finish off the live-action portion of the Studio panel, Disney revealed bits of information about their next villainess film, Cruella. Several months ago, Disney made the announcement that Oscar-winner Emma Stone would be playing the titular character. But not only is Emma Stone playing the dastardly title character, but Emma Thompson will also be in the film as well. They’re describing the film as an origin story that tells the tale of how the character became so cruel.

Afterward, a video with Emma Stone on set in London came on screen. She tells the crowd that the film will be in the 70s with a very punk rock vibe. Also, Disney gave fans their first look at Stone in character as the titular character.

As you can see, the character’s crazy sense of style makes an appearance here. Not to mention, her iconic black and white hair makes an appearance in the film. But the biggest surprise is seeing her with dalmatians. Ultimately, it looks as if she’s always been in love with dalmatians.

Other than that, there were no other details given for the film.
