·3-min read

If you're wondering how to watch Emma Stone in Cruella, the 101 Dalmatians remake, we've got all the details UK fans need to know.

If, like us, you’re obsessed with Disney’s live action remakes - uhh Beauty and the Beast was so epic - you’re probably counting down the days to the release of the 101 Dalmatians prequel, Cruella.

The movie, which is set in 1970s and 80s London, follows the story of how the infamous Cruella de Vil became, well, so infamous. Emma Stone stars as Cruella in the revamped version, and her character has had somewhat of a revamp too, sporting a v stylish wardrobe, new hairdo, and a killer smokey eye. We weren’t sure Glenn Close, who played Cruella in the 1996 adaption, could be beaten, but clearly we were wrong.

Other familiar faces starring in the movie include Emma Thompson, who plays the Baroness, and Joel Fry taking on the role of Cruella’s criminal sidekick, alongside Paul Walter Hauser.

So, how can you watch Cruella online when it’s released?

Cruella is due to be released on Disney+ in the UK on May 28 2021. It's also released in cinemas on the same day, but you'll be able to watch it from the comfort of your own home on the streaming service.

The film itself has been long-awaited, with Emma Stone taking centre stage as Estella (who later becomes Cruella), and Emma Thompson playing the ever stylish Baroness von Hellman. The film's official synopsis reads, "An all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil.

“Cruella, which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, 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 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."

We're so ready for this.
