RUMOR: ‘Cruella 2’ Will Be A Musical, Taylor Swift Wanted For The Villain Role?

We’re literally days away from this year’s D23 Expo. Although we expect to receive some awesome news and exciting updates about Disney’s future projects at the event, we at The DisInsider have obtained some interesting information about a couple of upcoming projects that we thought would be fun to share.

Now, to be totally transparent, we couldn’t get enough confirmation on the following info to run it as an exclusive, but we thought Disney fans would still enjoy hearing the “news” which is why we’re opting to run it as a rumor. So it goes without saying that everything below should be taken with a grain of salt.

Yesterday, you might recall that we ran a story about both the live-action adaptations of Lilo & Stitch and The Hunchback of Notre Dame potentially being Disney+ exclusives. Today, we’d like to add that there’s a possibility that the recently announced sequel to Cruella could also be going directly to the streamer.

That’s not all though. We also heard that the film is being planned as a musical, which makes sense considering the music really defined the first one.

That’s not all!!! Apparently, Taylor Swift is already set to star in an antagonistic role that was described to us as “Cruella’s match.” This would line up with a rumor via Deumoix. Back in June they shared one of their ‘blind items’, which leaves out names and specifics for followers to work out. The post read, “This A+ singer who has a minor appearance in Cruella (very tiny, you probably haven’t even noticed) might have a larger part in the sequel…

For those who may not remember, franchise star Emma Stone can carry a tune – and won an Oscar for her joint comedic and musical performance in La La Land a few years ago. If all this info is true, Stone singing alongside multi-Grammy award winner Taylor Swift could make for one of Disney’s most entertaining live-action entries to date.

Once again – and we cannot emphasize this enough – there’s a chance some of this info could be wrong – that’s why we’ve listed it as a rumor and not a report. Hopefully Disney will offer some official clarification at their live-action panel next week.
