Disney reformulates one of its classic villains with a film halfway between ‘Maleficent’ and ‘Birds of prey’

Emma Stone brings to life the devout of fashion and the suffering of others Cruella de Vil in a prequel which, in the style of ‘Maleficent’, will narrate the origins of the villain from ‘101 Dalmatians’. However, the trailer doesn’t point so much to typical Disney fairytale romanticism as to a reworking of its ‘wackiness’ style.Birds of prey‘.

Now we only have to pray that there are no motivations such as lost loves or unfathomable betrayals here., like those that justified the evil of ‘Maleficent’, and Disney throws himself without a net at the mischievous, anarchic and devastating unpredictable personality of Harley Quinn.
