Interesting they went with Estella for her real name instead of Ella. Probably because they didn't want to give a villain the same name as Cinderella. Estella is not a common variation of the name; it's usually either Estelle or Stella. It's of Latin origin and it means "star".

Everything about it sounds terrible. Since they're setting it in the 1970s, I wonder if this really is acting as some sort of official or unofficial prequel to the Glen Close films.

Cruella is not going to be a redemption story. As we suspected, she'll turn "evil" by the end.

Q: The fact Disney is even attempting to get audiences to sympathize with a puppy killer disgusts me. I don't care what happened to her, nothing can make me feel sorry for that woman.

Skyler Shuler: You’re reading this all wrong. This isn’t Maleficent.

Q: Like Disney's gonna make a movie where the protagonist actually turns evil in the end...

Skyler Shuler: That is Disney’s plan with this film. It’s a one-off film.

Skyler Shuler: This is a brand new synopsis, with production expected within the next 8 months.

Q: Is Emma Stone still attached to star?

Skyler Shuler: Yes.

As long as she comes off as unreasonable as an animal killer is, and not force some "ooh poor her, if those dogs hadn't bitten her, she wouldn't have turned out like she is" bs excuse...

Then again, it's Disney, I really doubt we'll get some genuine sadistic interpretation of her. :roll: Wouldn't bother me if they didn't make empty and pretentious promises.

Wasn't this movie supposed to be a prequel to the one with Glenn Close? I really hope that's the case.
I wouldn't mind if they would give Cruella some sad backstory etc. like with Maleficent, I just don't want them to redeem her at the end.

I love how adamant they are in saying that this film isn't like Maleficent. Still, I have very little faith that Disney will do the character justice. At least the Once Upon a Time take didn't neuter the character unlike Maleficent and Ursula.

I'm glad about that. But if she's evil, I imagine there will be some characters in the film that are good (similar to Roger and Anita, but more secondary) so the public can identify with them. Come to think of it, Anita and Cruella were former schoolmates in the animated film, so maybe she appears in this film.

By the way, I agree with the comment someone made on one of the links. Cruella didn't hate Dalmatians, she just liked their fur and wanted to make a fur coat out of them for that reason. That's something I didn't like about that last synopsis.

Oh, so a puppy killer is inexcusable, but people who kill other people or curse babies, they can turn out good and that's ok but not the animal killers.

I also didn't like Maleficent, Duster.

Oh thank God. I have a like/hate relationship with it. I liked it, but really what they did to Maleficent's original character and Sleeping Beauty was terrible.
