Hello darlings. It's the battle of the Emmas in the second Cruella trailer released today. In it we see the perfectly wretched Cruella become a massive thorn in the side of Baroness von Hellman.
Second Cruella Trailer
Get ready to witness the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious and notoriously fashionable villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. Set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, Cruella 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. 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.
This trailer makes it very clear where Cruella gets her hatred for dogs, specifically Dalmatians as they are the Baroness' pets. This film looks deliciously evil, perfect for the fashionable queen of mean. What got me even more excited for this film was learning that the brilliant Glenn Close who brought Cruella to life in 101 and 102 Dalmatians is serving as an executive producer and consultant. My fingers are still crossed for a cameo or flash forward in a post credit scene feature Close's Cruella.
Cruella debuts in theaters and on Disney+ premiere access May 28, 2021
