“Call Me Cruella”, Disney Releases Sneak Peek at Upcoming Film
Disney has recently released a sneak peek at one of their highly anticipated released of this month; Cruella. Featuring the first official song from the film, “Call Me Cruella.”
The film follows a young Cruella De Vil and dives deeper into the unknown history of the Dalmation obsessed character.
The sneak peek features the song “Call Me Cruella” performed by the award-winning group, Florence + The Machines, which will be on the soundtrack for the film.
The trailer provides fans with plenty of scenes to digest from the film and does well in presenting the overall narrative that viewers can expect when the film debuts on May 28th.
The movie stars La La Land actress Emma Stone in the title role, a shift from the usual characters the actress has taken on.
Seeking out her place in the world, Stones’ young and brilliant Cruella is a designer who embraces her chaos to question and aggravate the status quo.
The prequel film also features the talent of veteran Saving Mr. Banks actress Emma Thompson as Baroness. A villainous role, Thompson represents a stifling figure in the eyes of Stone’s Cruella.
The cast is rounded out by the incredibly talented 1917 and Shazam! actor Mark Strong, and actress Emily Beecham.
The “Call Me Cruella” sneak peek also presents the unique tone the film has created. Building off the black and white aesthetic that the villain is known for, the sets and costumes of the film appear to wonderfully build this unique world.
The director of the film, Craig Gillespie, is a veteran in the world of film and has a filmography of unique yet impactful titles that display his range as a filmmaker.
Whether it is the wildly popular biopic, I, Tonya, the quirky character study of Lars and the Real Girl, or the inspiring Disney story Million Dollar Arm; Gillespie has experience in many different areas and genres.
Written by Dana Fox and Tony McNamara, whose experience contains a lot of romance and comedy, the film will be an interesting opportunity to see if the duo can deliver on the unique take on the classic character.
Fans can see Cruella both in theatres and with Disney+ premiere access, on May 28th.
