Trailer: Cruella (2021)

So we have the trailer for the latest live action make the bad person look good film from Disney with Cruella. The worst thing is I am such a huge fan of Emma Stone (the rest of the cast is impressive as well) and then I just think this looks utterly pointless. Cruella DeVille wanted to kill puppies to make coat, I mean how is that going to be turned around or even approached?

Although I guess we can just assume that it will all be because a man broke her heart like in Maleficent right?

I place myself firmly on the fence whether I will actually watch this or not, I mean the more interesting thing will be if it goes straight to Disney+ and how much you will have to pay to watch it.

Thoughts? Will you be watching this one?
