At the D23 Expo today, during a jam-packed panel about all of their upcoming film offerings, both animated and live-action, was confirmation that "Cruella" is on the horizon. In a pre-taped segment, Emma Stone, who plays the famous dog hater, confirmed that it'd be set in the 1970s and be "very punk rock." ("I, Tonya" filmmaker Craig Gillespie is on board to direct.) Also confirmed: that Emma Thompson would be in the movie in an undisclosed role. And at the very end of the panel, they showed us what we'd all been waiting for ... a photo of Stone as the iconic villainess.
"Cruella" hits theaters May 28, 2021.
