The latest in Disney's deep dive into its most frightening villains, we finally get the backstory to 101 Dalmatian's Cruella de Vil as Emma Stone takes on the character's spots and penchant for iconic monochrome haute couture. Find out how to watch Cruella online on Disney Plus now.

The third film to arrive on Disney Plus Premier Access, Cruella arrives alongside a series of both live action movies and those that unearth the making of Disney villains, following on from Angelina Jolie's uncanny portrayal of Sleeping Beauty's Maleficent.

Starring Emma Thompson, Emily Beecham, and Mark Strong alongside Stone, Cruella sets the scene in 1970s London where Estella de Vil aspires to become a fashion designer.

In the back drop the ongoing punk rock movement inspires bold, anarchical style that, in practically every way, embodies the criminal Estella is inevitably about to become - starting off with pinching Thompson's spotty canines, of course.

When can I watch Cruella on Disney Plus?

Cruella arrives (fashionably on time) on Disney Plus on Friday, May 28, where it will be available on a PVOD (premium video on-demand) basis via Disney Plus' Premier Access feature.
