PSA: Emma Stone's live action Disney movie 'Cruella' is out in NZ now

Emma Stone is the latest celebrity to join Disney’s live-action bandwagon.

The La La Land star takes on the devilish villain Cruella de Vil from the 101 Dalmatians movie, simply titled, Cruella - and it's out in cinemas and on Disney+ with Premiere access now!

In the striking trailers released by Disney, we see Emma looking almost unrecognisable as the manic fashionista.

Honestly, how good does this movie look?!

The new anti-hero crime comedy also stars the likes of Emma Thompson, Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, Emily Beecham and Mark Strong.

We first got a glimpse in 2019 with this photo which shows Emma looks stunning as a younger, more "punk rock" Cruella, with black and white hair, holding the leashes of three dalmatians. Behind her, her henchmen played by Paul Walter Hauser and Game of Thrones star Joel Fry look just menacing.

Similar to Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent movie - which centres on the villain from Sleeping Beauty - the live-action film will focus on a Cruella de Vil as the anti-hero.

The prequel - directed by I Tonya filmmaker, Craig Gillespie - will be set in London’s 1970s punk rock era, before the events of 101 Dalmatians.

This isn’t the first time a live-action remake has been inspired by the original 1961 animated 101 Dalmatians movie. You may remember award-winning actress Glenn Close iconically took on the role of Cruella in 1996 live-action flick, and boy, was she brilliant in it.

We won't have to wait any longer too long until we see Emma as Cruella, with the movie being released today, May 28 2021.
