I'm Pitching A Love Interest For The "Cruella" Sequel, And These Are The Best Prospects

    Which Disney baddie is she going to fall for in the forthcoming sequel?

    ICYMI, Disney made a live-action film focused on its original fashion-loving, dog-hating villain, Cruella de Vil.

    And so Disney has a sequel in the works, which for me raises the question, “Will there be a love interest?” Because these Disney villains seem to have a lot of time for nefarious schemes but not much time for romance, and THAT HAS GOT TO CHANGE.

    So I will be playing matchmaker for Cruella de Vil today, pitching Disney Studios on some good-looking, eligible, equally evil romantic partners for Cruella, culled from the pantheon of animated Disney films.
