Disney Gives 'Cruella' Sequel the Green Light

Despite mixed reviews, the movie is a box office hit.

Disney is reportedly working on a sequel to Cruella, the Emma Stone-led origin story of 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella de Vil. The movie, which just entered is second week, has already grossed $48.5 million USD globally.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Craig Gillespie and screenwriter Tony McNamara will return to work on the Cruella sequel, which will also see Stone reprise her role as the stylish antagonist. “[Cruella] has been incredibly well received by audiences around the world, with a 97% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes in addition to A’s in every demographic from CinemaScore on opening weekend, ranking it among the most popular of our live-action reimaginings,” a Disney spokesperson said.

Despite its overall success, the movie received mixed reviews from critics at Vulture, The New York Times and Vanity Fair, the latter of which described the feature as a “tiring, deeply uncool assault.”

Cruella 2 is still in early development at Disney — watch this space for updates.
