    Disney Drops New 'Cruella' Trailer During Grammys
    -------------------------------------------------
    During the Grammys, Disney dropped the latest trailer for
    "Cruella" starring Emma Stone.

    Before she was the evil villain in "101 Dalmatians," Cruella
    de Vil got her start in customer service. Set to an
    electrified "These Boots Are Made for Walking," a young,
    fiery, red-haired Cruella (Emma Stone) - then known as
    Estella - balances her janitorial job while marinating big
    fashion dreams in her spare time.

    The trailer immediately lays out Estella's ambitions. "It's
    a world of opportunity. And I was meant for more in this
    life," she says. "I want to make art, and I want to make
    trouble."

    Estella, a clever and creative grifter, is invigorated by
    London's punk rock revolution. Exasperated by her day job and
    determined to make a name for herself as a designer, Estella
    has a one-woman riot in a window display and garners the
    attention of fashion legend Baroness von Hellman (Emma
    Thompson).

    In the meantime, she befriends a pair of young thieves, and
    the trio build a life on the streets of London. Even with a
    whiff of success, Estella cannot escape her wicked tendencies.
    Her relationship with Baroness von Hellman propels Estella to
    embrace her diabolic side. Deemed the "queen of mean," she
    transforms into the fashionable black-and-white-haired Cruella
    we all know.

    "I am woman, hear me roar," she demands.

    "Cruella" is set to release May 28. It was directed by Craig
    Gillespie ("I, Tonya"), with a dazzling wardrobe coming from
    Oscar-winning costume designer Jenny Beavan, ("Mad Max: Fury
    Road").
