Disney, when you bring her out, can you introduce her as Joker … eh … Cruella.
Emma Stone is looking a little different nowadays in Disney’s new trailer for “Cruella,” an origin story for everyone’s favorite attempted puppy murderer, Cruella de Vil. (Watch the trailer above.)
And here she is looking more like The Devil Wears Perdita and Pongo:
According to the synopsis, the movie will feature the Academy Award winner living out the future villain’s “rebellious early days” in 1970s London “amidst the punk rock revolution,” going from the clever, creative Estella to the “raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella.”
And while the beginnings of a wannabe pet serial killer already seem punk rock enough, the internet seemed to pick up on very different vibes, with many comparing Stone to another famous fictional character.
“Disney’s Joker” began trending on Twitter shortly after the trailer dropped, and if that doesn’t scare you no evil thing will.
While the internet seems divided over whether it’s good that Cruella is living in a doggone society, the jokes and comments are definitely enough to put a smile on that face:
“Cruella” is due out May 28.
