I’m not typically drawn to origin stories of villains, but there’s always an exception to the rule and Cruella proved me wrong. Even as a young girl, Estella always came with a feisty side she named Cruella. Part of this was due to the teasing she received as she was born with half black hair and half white hair. She was always one to challenge the status quo fighting back at the world that has done her wrong. She became orphaned after watching her mother fall to her death after being attacked by three Dalmatians. She befriends two grifters named Horace and Jasper, played by Joel Fry and Paul Walter Hauser, and throughout the next decade they perform little pick pockets as she hones in on a passion for fashion design. Now played by Emma Stone, Estella gets noticed by the renowned designer The Baroness von Hellman, played by Emma Thompson, becoming her new protégé. Estella’s world is turned upside down and becomes a tale of revenge after realizing the connection between her later mother and The Baroness. In theaters and streaming on Disney+ with Premier Access May 28
