Production is currently ongoing on Disney’s live-action 101 Dalmatians prequel, Cruella, which stars Emma Stone as the classic Disney villain. Now, thanks to a close friend on Instagram he has shared with us some photos from the set.
As you can see in the gallery below, we get a small peek, at the 70’s punk rock London vibe the movie is going for. We also receive brand new looks at Paul Walter Hauser and Joel Fry as Cruella’s classic henchmen Jasper and Horace, and they have some furry… friends?
Just last week set photos dropped dropped featuring Stone with bright red hair, which you can take a look at here. Stone also appeared via video at Disney’s D23 Expo a couple weeks back to share details on the film. In the middle of the video, Stone also channeled her inner Cruella de Vil as she yelled at a cute dog barking at her off-screen.
The film will explore the villainess in 70’s London. Cruella originated in Dodie Smith’s beloved 1956 book, “The Hundred and One Dalmatians.” The role was voiced by Betty Lou Gerson in Walt Disney’s 1961 animated adaptation and played by Glenn Close in the 1996 live-action remake, as well as in that film’s 2000 sequel, 102 Dalmatians.
Directed by Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya), Cruella is also set to star is Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks) as the Baroness, a crucial part of Cruella’s rise to villainy. Further, Dev Patel has been approached for the role of Raj aka Roger, the owner of Pongo, but that has yet to be confirmed at this. Glenn Close is on board as a producer on the project.
Cruella will hit theaters on May 28, 2021.
