Disney’s expanding its kingdom with live-action movies, and next on the list is Cruella, a story of the 101 Dalmations’ notorious villain, Cruella de Vil. Set against the backdrop of ’70s punk rock London starring Emma Stone, Disney is attempting to provide a background story of everyone’s most hated childhood villain, who made fur coats out of innocent dogs.
Fans, meanwhile, are having a field day, as they are finding comparisons to the movie Joker, Harley Quinn, and calling Cruella a ‘Hot Topic’ aesthetic girl. Some are simply outraged that Disney is trying to provide a sympathetic story to this notorious villain, while others are simply having a laugh.
Take a look.
Looking forward to the slow, dour indie cover of “Who Let the Dogs Out” for the Cruella trailer— Jake Cole (@ThatJakePC) February 16, 2021
If the Cruella trailer doesn’t feature a children’s choir singing a haunting, slowed down cover version of a certain Baha Men song, what are we even doing here?— Stephen Douglas (@Stephen_Douglas) February 16, 2021
