Walt Disney Studios released a new Cruella sneak peek ahead of the film’s release later this month in theaters and on Disney+. While showing off new footage of the highly-anticipated film, it also shows off a new song called “Call Me Cruella” by Florence + the Machine, which was made specifically for the movie. The song will be fully released in the film’s official soundtrack, which releases on May 21 (one week before the film hits theaters and Disney+ with Premier Access).
Starring in the film is Emma Stone (La La Land), who plays a younger version of the fur-obsessed antagonist of 101 Dalmatians. Joining her is fellow Academy Award winner Emma Thompson as the Baroness, Joel Fry as Jasper, and Paul Walter Hauser as Horace, along with Mark Strong, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, and Emily Beecham.
Based on the character created by Dodie Smith in her 1956 book The Hundred and One Dalmatians, Disney’s Cruella will explore the rebellious early days of one of cinema’s most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. Set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, the film 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.
