★★★★ "Spectacular... a huge amount of old-fashioned fun to be had " – Guardian

Academy Award® winner Emma Stone (“La La Land”) stars in Disney’s Cruella, an all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil.

Cruella, which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by two-time Oscar® winner Emma Thompson (“Howards End,” “Sense & Sensibility”). But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella.

Disney’s Cruella is directed by Craig Gillespie (“I Tonya”) and produced by Andrew Gunn (“Freaky Friday”), Marc Platt (“Mary Poppins Returns”) and Kristin Burr (“Christopher Robin”), with Emma Stone and Michelle Wright (“Baby Driver”) serving as executive producers. Two-time Oscar®- winning costume designer Jenny Beavan (“Mad Max: Fury Road,” “A Room with a View”) creates the dazzling and imaginative costumes, which take on a life of their own.

*Please note: CRUELLA contains several sequences with flashing lights that may affect those who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy or have other photosensitivities.

★★★★ – Guardian
“Kindly step back and make way for a sensational couple of Emmas: Stone and Thompson. Together, they are the highly strung dysfunctional double-act that post-lockdown cinema didn't know it needed.” ...“extremely entertaining”  ...“what a lavish display with repeated jukebox slams on the soundtrack keeping the movie’s blood-sugar levels high.” 

★★★★ – Empire Magazine
“With killer looks, propulsive filmmaking, and stellar turns from Emmas Stone and Thompson, Cruella is a treat.”
“An unexpectedly cinematic crime-and-couture romp, delivered with the sort of style, snarl and eccentricity that Cruella herself would likely applaud. She makes being bad look very good.” 

★★★★ – Daily Telegraph
“A zany, rollicking tale of how young Miss de Vil turned bad” 

★★★★ - Independent (UK) 
"Wickedly stylish and an absolute gas"

★★★★ - The Jewish Chronicle
"Stylish, fresh and wickedly anarchic."

★★★/4 – Observer
“fresh and exciting” “wicked style” "scrumptious" "vibrant“

★★★½ - Stuff
"Cruella's duelling Emmas deliver up wickedly good fun" "the real magic in Cruella is in the women at its heart." "a good time and always a terrific spectacle."
