Leave it to the talented actress, Emma Stone, to play nearly every role in Hollywood! From La La Land to Easy A, she has done it all. This time around, Stone is turning evil for Disney's Cruella. She's trading in her red locks for a half white half black bob and might just become your new favorite villain.

Stone set the screen ablaze as she transformed into a younger version of the iconic 101 Dalmations villain. The live-action film is due to release on May 28, 2021, and is focused on Cruella's earlier years. Set in 1970s London, the Oscar-winning actress will go toe-to-toe with the Baroness, played by Emma Thompson. 

Disney released the official trailer for the movie on February 17th, and fans are already squealing with excitement! The actress is currently pregnant with her first baby, which could pose challenges for Emma, but as she says in the trailer, "I was ready to make a statement. How does the saying go? I am woman, hear me roar."

And make a statement she is certainly expected to do! She might transform into a dog-hating villain on screen, but the Emma we know and love "Is just getting started, darling." Mark your calendars and tell all of your friends! Once May 28th arrives, Stone fans are predicted to be glued to the screen. And who could blame them?

The 32-year-old star previously teased fans with the storyline of the film. "Since you're such huge Disney fans, we wanted to let you know a bit about the story," Emma told the Cruella-loving crowd at Disney's D23 Expo convention in 2019. "1970s set in London, it's punk rock," she said, heightening excitement to the max.

With Stone's help, Walt Disney Pictures brings back Cruella, who many believe to be among the most memorable villains. A day before the trailer came out, Disney released the film's first poster donning the character's signature black and white hair. Are you excited? Because we're clutching our dog's leashes already.
