    The First "Cruella" Trailer Is Here, And The Internet Already Has A Ton Of Thoughts

    Is this Disney's Joker???

    The first trailer for the new Disney Cruella movie is here!

    Honestly, Cruella served us two-tone hair before we were even ready.

    The upcoming live-action movie stars Emma Stone as a young Cruella de Vil, following her years as a fashion designer — during which she became obsessed with dogs' skins and, ya know, became a villain and all.

    Brilliant. Bad. A little bit mad. May 2021.

    Of course, the internet is already a-flurry with plenty of ~opinions~ about the first look at the crime/comedy flick.

    She's just getting started, darling 🖤

    Some people were into it!

    Honestly going the Harley Quinn route with Cruella is lowkey genius. I think Emma Stone is about to eat it up not gonna lie. The visual style also looks a lot different than these other live action re-imaginings.

    While others were...less into it:

    i was always content with the understanding that cruella is the way she is because she’s rich and british

    Cruella De Vil is basically girl boss animal cruelty

    There were also some other movies that were brought up — namely, Joker...

    the CRUELLA trailer LOOKS nice but also i think sometimes ladies who love fashion should be allowed to remain ladies who love fashion and not the joker

    ...And Maleficent.

    I swear to god you pull a Maleficent and try to make this character, a character whose MAIN TRAIT is wanting to kill and skin puppies, into a "sympathetic villain", I'm gonna be so mad. This has the opportunity to be a fun villainy crime film. Don't ruin it. https://t.co/LEuJbwZeqe

    DISNEY EXEC #1: Our live action remakes have been performing well and Maleficent has proven there's an audience for rehabilitating a female villain! DISNEY EXEC #2: Great, so which villain are we going to do next? DISNEY EXEC #1: The dog murderer.

    Cruella getting a Maleficent level entrance is all I needed in life.

    The movie comes out May 28, 2021, which means we've got ample time to keep up the Cruella discourse until then.
