Disney found blockbuster success in 2014 by telling the origin story of “Sleeping Beauty” villain Maleficent (the Angelina Jolie-starring tentpole grossed $758 million worldwide and led to an underperforming 2019 sequel), and now the Mouse House is hoping to have similar luck with “Cruella,” a deep dive into the younger days of the iconic “One Hundred and One Dalmatians” villain Cruella de Vil. 

“Cruella” is currently scheduled to open in theaters May 28 via Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. The release date could change because of the pandemic, but for now the movie remains dated for the 2021 summer movie season.
