Have you ever wondered what kind of messed-up experiences a person has gone through, for them to want to skin puppies and make them into a spotted fur coat? That’s a thought that crosses every viewer’s mind as they watch Cruella de Vil, one of Disney’s most diabolical villains, relentlessly pursue adorable little furballs in the animated classic (and also Glenn Close’s live-action iteration), ‘101 Dalmatians.’ Disney attempts to answer this very question as they bring us Cruella’s origins story in the undeniably stylish live-action prequel, ‘Cruella.’ If you’re curious about the plot of ‘Cruella’ and where you can stream it, we’ve got you covered.
What is Cruella About?
Headlined by two Oscar-winning Emmas, Stone and Thompson, ‘Cruella’ weaves the story of how plucky orphan Estella becomes the monochrome-wearing vamp we love to hate. Set in 1970s punk-rock London, the film follows Estella’s journey as she morphs from a gifted and ambitious fashion designer to the notorious criminal obsessed with dalmatian fur. Estella locks horns with her mentor-turned-rival Baroness von Hellman (a couture-draped villain who is somehow eviler than Cruella) in a fashion-centric war and discovers the ugly truth about their relationship. No puppies were harmed during the making of this film.
Is Cruella on Netflix?
No, ‘Cruella’ is not a part of Netflix’s expansive content catalog. However, viewers looking for something in a similar vein should check out ‘Stardust,’ which follows a young man’s quest for true love and features witches, flying pirate ships, and an absurd war of succession.
