Disney’s ‘Cruella’ Starring Emma Stone Set In 1970’s London

Jan 7, 2018

Walt Disney Pictures has been developing a 101 Dalmations prequel focusing on villain Cruella de Vil, who will be played by Oscar-nominee Emma Stone (Birdman, La La Land).

We’ve uncovered a possible plot detail about the film.

Omega Underground has learned that Cruella will be set in London during 1979 and the punk-scene might be the backdrop (think The Clash/Sex Pistols). We’re treating this as a rumor but it might be fitting as we’re seeing a lot of the live-action Disney films set in London taking place in various eras to keep them varied.

1970’s London could be an interesting setting for a fashion-conscious Cruella de Vil. Most people might be unaware but the Sex Pistols we’re directly connected to the fashion scene and was formed by a clothing shop.

Cruella will be directed by Alex Timbers (Mozart In The Jungle) and is currently in pre-production. Filming is expected to start sometime this year in London, England.

Emma Stone recently shot the Netflix film Maniac in New York for director Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) with her Superbad co-star Jonah Hill. It finished filming early last month.

Disney has yet to set production dates or a release date for Cruella.
