I'm sure it will be great!

However, I just wish Disney would use their imagineers to, you know, imagine a little and make an original movie that is not a redone cartoon version! I can't remember when they did that last? I would guess it was with the Monsters Inc series? Not sure.

It seems like they are just going through their vault at successful animation films and doing live action.
Whatever happened to doing a new and original movie??? That's all :(
Disney has a few new originals being released soon, the next one is Raya and the Last Dragon.

No, next live action will be Sword in the stone....oh wait...Excalibur.... ;)

Might be worth watching if they get David Tennant as Merlin.

DSNY Newscast posed this article today about the new Cruella Live-Action Movie.
https://dsnynewscast.com/2018/07/ex...ys-upcoming-cruella-live-action-origin-story/

The small amount information we got said that we will learn why Cruella hates dalmatians. Emma Stone will play Cruella in the movie with no release date so far.
Disney: “Why Cruella hates Dalmatians...”

Except she doesn’t. She thinks they have beautiful coats and wants one. I’m intrigued by the idea of the movie, but also tired of new Disney movies that try to explain everything away instead of just letting us enjoy a good villain.

I’ll still watch it though.

Couldnt agree with you more. What an exploitation this is of another Walt Disney feature. They wanted to make a movie about a criminal in the 70s who summons bats, rides motorcycles, and can set themselves on fire. The Dalmations movie wasn't even out in the 70s, how can Cruella's origin story take place after the movie?

Why is this a Cruella Devil movie? Cruella is supposed to be completely insane and out of her mind, but this movie has her as a collected and "cool" criminal.

What's next, a movie about the hunter that killed Bambi's mom?

It's from the director of I Tonya. I would have loved a movie that was more real. Not just making an incel male a female character.

This reminded me of ABC’s Once upon a time meets the Joker. I didn’t really like it. In OUAT Cruella didn’t have a sad backstory either, she was just a nasty villain who wanted to hurt people. Let’s hope they keep the story this way.

Just want to point out that principal photography for Cruella happened at the same time The Joker was released.

This means the script for Cruella was set before The Joker was released.

So, unless they were frantically re-writing the script for Cruella while also filming it, it's not a copy of The Joker.

Tho, post editing could have been influenced by The Joker.

Anyway, this wouldn't be the first time two movies came out at the same time with the same plot/vibe. The famous ones being: Armageddon and Deep Impact; and A Bug's Life and Antz.

“A Bug’s Life” and “Antz” — “Finding Nemo” and “Shark Tale” — etc. ;)

The first Cruella trailer gathered 71 million views in its first 24 hours

Shows how popular the original animated feature still is.

I'm excited for this. I'm still skeptical if anyone can do a better Cruella than Glenn Close... but I also thought the same thing about Jack Nicholson's Joker performance. Nobody, I mean NOBODY could top Nicholson in playing the iconic character. Then along came Heath Ledger...

...And now along comes Emma Stone. Very much looking forward to how she portrays this classic villain. So far I'm liking what I'm seeing.

I get this concern, but I doubt they'd go full-on Maleficent again and butcher a classic baddie's character into misunderstood sugar & spice. Please not again.

With Cruella, it is still within her character to say that there was some sort of bad blood between her and Dalmatians in the past... leading to her obsession of turning them into fur. Maybe it was her hatred, not her love of the look on her as a coat, that led to what she was in the original cartoon. It could still work and keep loyal to her character.
