We’ve all been waiting for every Disney movie remake but apparently, the upcoming film ‘Cruella’ is postponed until 2021!
2019 has been a year full of surprise movie remakes especially for Disney who has a lot on their plate. From ‘Mulan‘ to ‘The Little Mermaid‘, Disney has been dropping movies after movies, making the kid in us squeal with joy.
Their latest addition to the crew is ‘Cruella‘, although it’s not technically a remake, it will give a sequel to the 1961 animated film, ‘One Hundred and One Dalmatians’, as the story will revolve on the dastardly villain. We can probably call it a semi-remake, heh.
Cruella or better known as Cruella De Vil will be played by the one and only Emma Stone! The sequel was set to be on 2020 Christmas holiday season box office blockbuster. However, Disney announced that it will postpone its release date until 2021. Aww!
And we may know the reason why! Disney thought it might be a good idea to hold ‘Cruella’ because they will also be previewing ‘West Side Story’ on December 18, 2020. This is only 5 days before the screening date of ‘Cruella’.
This is a smart move from Disney since it can potentially reduce their earnings if the two movies coincide (we see you, Disney). Disney definitely knows a thing or two about successful movie releases!
If you haven’t watched the original film ‘One Hundred and One Dalmatians’ or the ‘101 Dalmatians’ live-action, well, why haven’t you?! It’s definitely one for the books!
Cruella de Emma
We can’t wait how Disney will develop the plot of ‘Cruella’, considering she’s one of the most infamous villains in Disney history!
And we can only wonder how the lovable Emma Stone will portray this character since we’ve only seen her as the bubbly leading lady in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ and ‘La La Land’. Emma will continue what Glenn Close left her so she might be feeling a bit of pressure.
But alas! We still have to wait until 2021 to see how this will play out. *cries*
