The Plot: What Is Live-action 'Cruella' All About?

The live-action film will feature a young Cruella during the 1970's London.

It will chronicle Estella de Vil's early years, up until the pivotal moment that turned her into a criminal. 

According to Collider, the film will see Stone playing "a brilliant clothing designer" who nonetheless works as a lowly department store employee.

One day, the Baroness (Thompson) enters the store, wearing Cruella's special locket that was handed to her by her mother.

Cruella lost the necklace on the same night her mother passed away at the Baroness' estate. Cruella decides she'll do whatever it takes to get her locket back.

The film is expected to reveal the reason why Cruella became so obsessed with the Dalmatians.

The live-action film will be complete with crazy yet aesthetically pleasing costumes.

“The time period the film takes place in is the ’70s, so we‘ve had so much fun with the costumes, hair, and makeup to create her entire persona,” Emma said in the same interview with Vogue.
