See pic: Emma Stone channels a punk-rock version of Cruella De Vil
Actress Emma Stone will be bringing the story of one of Disney’s greatest villains, Cruella de Vil, on the big screen with Cruella, and she says it comes with a fresh approach and is very “punk rock”.
Disney on Saturday shared a first look of the actress as the iconic villain at the D23 Expo. Stone could not attend the event, but shared information about the project through a video message, in which a dalmatian also made an appearance. “Since you’re such huge Disney fans, we wanted to let you know a bit about the story,” Stone said, adding, “1970’s set in London, it’s punk rock”.

In the first look of the live-action project, Stone as Cruella is seen with short permed hair with de Vil’s signature black and white colour-blocked hairstyle. She is wearing a black leather checkered jacket, and is holding onto three leashes attached to three dalmatians.
