Must read

Cruella Star Emma Stone laughed at early comparisons between Disney’s upcoming Cruella and Warner Bros. The Monster of 2019 hit Joker but praised fellow Oscar winner Joaquin Phoenix for his performance in the role. “It’s very different from Joker in a lot of ways,” Stone explained to Total movie. “I would never compare myself to Joaquin Phoenix from a distance. I would have liked to be more like him.Cruella director Craig Gillespie appreciates that audiences may have spotted some basic parallels, but explained that Cruella is a different type of movie in a number of ways.

“There are some really deep and emotional things that Cruella faces that send her to the dark and evil side. So in that sense it is [similar]Says Gillespie. “But it’s definitely its own thing. Just to reframe Cruella, I thought it was important to show that dark side of her. But there will be a lot of fun, a lot of humor. There are a lot of jokes and absolutely delicious beats in the style, which is different from Joker.

Disney recently confirmed that Cruella will be available on Disney Plus Premier Access the same day it hits theaters, May 28.

Reports Stone was at the start of talks to play iconic Disney villain and Dalmatia aficionado in a live-action movie first appeared in January 2016.
