Cruella: After being commercially released this June, Cruella, starring Emma Stone and Emma Thompson, will be available to everyone on Disney+ at no additional charge to its subscribers. The news comes to streaming from the 16th of July.
The live-action about the 101 Dalmatian villain was directed by Craig Gillespie from a screenplay by Tony McNamara. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many cinemas were unable to receive Disney’s production, and the creation of Premier Access on its official platform was an alternative so that major premieres were not affected.
Other films such as Mulan (2020) and Raya and the Last Dragon (2021) also reached audiences in different regions through this same feature. After a period of limited availability for those who contracted the service, the productions could be accessed by all subscribers without extra costs.
Many fans are eager to check out the film on Disney+, mainly due to the numerous favorable reviews that the film received from professionals in the field. Several experts have argued that there is an impressive narrative power, which is intertwined with the beautiful costumes developed by the production design team and the cast’s performances.
In addition to Stone and Thompson, Cruella also features guest appearances by Joel Fry, John McCrea, Kirby Howell Baptiste, Mark Strong, Emily Beecham, Paul Walter Hauser and Jamie Demetriou.
