With her passion for furs and her demonic laughter, she is one of the most charismatic villains of Disney's characters.  As per Disney’s new teaser, a live-action film about Cruella De Vil is in preparation, and it will be simply called Cruella, directed by Craig Gillespie who successfully directed I, Tonya last year.  If Glenn Close had brilliantly slipped into the skin of the villainous character in the film of Stephen Herek in 1996, it is the turn of Emma Stone to embody the evil dog-napper in her early years. The story of this prequel takes place in the 80s in a punk atmosphere, the antipodes of the 1961 cartoon. We cannot wait.
