Disney announced that fans of the 101 Dalmatians movies can look forward to a new chapter in the story. Cruella is set to release in 2021. No update on how the pandemic could impact this release time frame but we do have some new information on the film that gives us hope!
Disney has released an update on the description of the movie. The Disney Insider posted the update and it reads as follows:
Before she becomes Cruella de Vil?
Teenaged Estella has a dream. She wishes to become a fashion designer, having been gifted with talent, innovation, and ambition all in equal measures. But life seems intent on making sure her dreams never come true. Having wound up penniless and orphaned in London at twelve, four years later Estella runs wild through the city streets with her best friends and partners-in-(petty)-crime, Horace and Jasper, two amateur thieves. When a chance encounter vaults Estella into the world of the young rich and famous, however, she begins to question the existence she’s built for herself in London and wonders whether she might, indeed, be destined for more after all. When an up-and-coming rockstar commissions Estella to design him a signature piece, she begins to feel as though she has truly arrived. But what is the cost of keeping up with the fast crowd– and is it a price Estella is willing to pay?
It appears that Estella will be the name on Emma Stone’s character before she turns into Cruella de Vil. This description gives us a look at what the tone of the upcoming movie will be. As well as how this sets itself apart from the other 101 Dalmations movies.
We look forward to more details as we inch closer to the release of this new movie!
