Disney has shared a trailer for Cruella, which sees Emma Stone taking on the role of renowned campy 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella de Vil.

The clip sees Stone committing to Cruella’s over-the-top persona, decked out in flamboyant gothic outfits in the streets of 1970’s London. “I guess they were always scared that I’d be a psycho…but a new day brings new opportunities, and I was ready to make a statement,” Stone says in the glamorous clip.

The forthcoming live-action film, which has been in the works for over five years, serves as a prequel to 101 Dalmatians. It will see Cruella de Vil growing into her villainous persona, as a wealthy fur heiress that uses the hides of dalmatian puppies for couture clothing.
