While a vast portion of the streaming audience is spending their Memorial Day weekend watching the Friends reunion special, they gave those with Disney+ a new add-on choice in the new Cruella movie. The Emma Stone-led root story of the villain from the 101 Dalmatians franchise is best defined as “gritty”. That’s because an assumed leak of a pivotal scene from the film went viral. After all, it was bizarrely comic out of context.
Cruella already gets its first reactions
Among the upcoming Disney premieres, one that draws especially attention is Cruella. That had its premiere on May 28, 2021 in theaters cinema as in the Disney Premium service.
In short, over a week after its launch, its first reactions on social networks have not long been coming. Generally having quite positive evaluations, some as a very “anti Disney.”
Here are serious spoilers ahead of us while the rest of the post covers one of the key revelations from the film, which hit the Disney streaming service (and theaters) this weekend. Cruella’s genesis follows many other famous works. She is evil and hates Dalmatians for a very personal reason – her mother was killed.
A clip went viral, a scene from the film appeared to show the death of Cruella’s mother as a child beside her. The dogs were to blame. Cliff to his death. Not really. Many people have been surprised that the film uses a classic motivational trope here, especially when dogs kill humans. As a result,
The fact that the Cruella movie doesn't have a sad cover version of Who Let the Dogs Out in a minor key for its trailer or for that opening death scene is just a huge missed opportunity.

I’m not going to side with Cruella but I’m also not going to pretend that 101 isn’t too many Dalmatians

Between “there was no plan for the Star Wars sequel trilogy” and “Cruella’s tragic backstory is that dalmatians killed her mom” I hope every indie creator who has ever experienced self-doubt over their storytelling skills and/or professional competency is feeling very reassured.

I, too, had a very very normal and extremely heterosexual childhood that was entirely constructed around Cruella DeVil. https://t.co/9jq4l39ULE

For $30 the Cruella movie had better be a masterclass on making luxury cloaks out of dogs

Cruella is actually killing Dalmatians because she's trying to make the full set of Dalmatian armor, but she needs a Dalmatian Gem to complete it and the gem won't drop no matter how many she kills.
