Cruella is directed by Craig Gillespie, from a screenplay written by Aline Brosh McKenna, Jez Butterworth, Dana Fox, Kelly Marcel, Tony McNamara, and Steve Zissis.

It stars Emma Stone as the titular character, with Emma Thompson, Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, and Mark Strong in supporting roles.

Glenn Close, who played the titular character in the 1996 live-action remake and its sequel, to which the film is a prequel, serves as an executive producer.

The film takes place in 1970s London, when young fashion designer Estella de Vil becomes obsessed with dogs' skins, especially Dalmatians, until she eventually becomes a ruthless and terrifying legend known as Cruella.
