Cruella is a brand new American crime comedy film.

In the past couple of years, Disney has brought several animated characters to life, may it be Aladdin or beloved Mowgli from The Jungle Book. Maleficent and Beauty and the Beast have also not been behind in the path.

Disney’s upcoming movie, Cruella, explores the origins of one of their most iconic villains, Cruella de Vil. Disney has big plans for this new title.

Cruella: Release Date

The creators announced a live-action Cruella de Vil in 2011.

The initial schedule for Cruella was December 23, 2022. The reason why the date for the release shifted was probably the delay in production because of the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic internationally.

The new date declared for release is May 28, 2022.

We might soon get to see the glimpses of the movie by the trailer.

Filming status

On August 24, 2019, during the D23 Expo, the team revealed the on-track filming and primary photography of the film. The first official image from the film featuring Stone as Cruella, along with three adult tethered Dalmatians, unveiled. Hauser portrayed as Horace while Fry as Jasper.

Many details are not disclosed about the brand new movie, but the Mouse House has had many plans regarding the blockbuster.
