The film is set to narrate Disney's classic '101 Dalmatians' in a new way- this time from the villain Cruella de Vil's perspective.
A year and a half later, Disney unveiled the first poster of the film which features a close-up shot of Stone who looks nothing like her usual self. Sporting heavy eye makeup, fans felt Stone looked a 'punk rock' version of Cruella.
Here have a look at some of the reactions.

The film has been directed by Craig Gillespie of 'I, Tonya' fame. Disney has not revealed too much about the cast but the preview image released in 2019 had actors Paul Walter Hauser and Joel Fry behind Stone standing behind stone- presumably appearing as Jasper and Horace, De Vil's burglarizing sidekicks.
The film is slated to release in May 2021.
