‘Cruella’ Adds Emma Thompson to the ‘101 Dalmatians’ Villain Origin Story Starring Emma Stone

Walt Disney Pictures is still going full steam ahead with their slate of live-action remakes of their animated classics. However, in the case of one of their most famous movies, they’re taking a different live-action approach. Since 101 Dalmatians was already remade into a live-action movie back in 1996 (and even spawned a sequel), Disney is giving the fashionista villain Cruella de Vil her own movie starring Emma Stone as a younger version of the deranged woman who wants to make a coat out of ...
