When you think Cruella de Vil, you probably think of gaudy fur clothing and those weird, long cigarettes.

And now, in 2021, Disney has released “Cruella,” a look into that character’s backstory. Set in the 1970s and starring Emma Stone, Cruella follows a young fashion designer navigating a gritty, and cruel world.  

And it dares to ask the question: How does one become the type of person that kills puppies to make coats?

The 1A Movie Club convenes to discuss this Disney prequel as well as the recent trend of live-action Disney films.
