Cruella de Vil’s Origin Story Has Arrived in Disney’s Newest Trailer

Read next

The last few years have seen a slew of live-action reboots of fave Disney classics, and this time Disney has turned to one of the most villainous in its newest film. Get ready to get evil!

Cruella documents the early days of the 101 Dalmatians foe in all her fashionable glory. Set in 1970’s London, viewers get to see first hand how this young grifter came to be the fur-loving villain we all know and loathe.

As we see in the trailer, Cruella actually starts out as Estella, a creative woman who is determined to make a name for herself. She ends up becoming friends with a few young thieves and one day catches the attention of Baroness von Hellman, played by Emma Thompson.

In the ensuing scenes, Cruella who was born “brilliant, bad and a little bit mad” shows off her crazy side (including her driving) in epic proportions.

You can catch the full film, and all those evil laughs, when the movie premieres on May 28, 2021.
