Emma Stone plays the protagonist in this live-action prequel about a young Cruella de Vil

Directed by Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya), with a strong supporting cast and the most incredible array of stunning costumes, this darkly atmospheric Disney prequel has been long awaited.

Set in the 1970s, during the punk rock movement in London, the film follows young, aspiring fashion designer, Estella de Vil (Emma Stone). Employed by Baroness von Hellman (Emma Thompson), the head of a prestigious fashion house and a renowned haute fashion legend, Estella soon descends onto a path of villainy that leads to her becoming the notorious criminal and Dalmatian fur-obsessive, Cruella de Vil.
