CRUELLA | PRODUCTION

W hile Disney has proved fond of remakes over the past couple of years, Cruella is an origin story more in the vein of Maleficent . It first introduces the House of DeVil’s future creative director as Estella, a young grifter who arrives in London against a backdrop of seventies punk culture. Determined to make a name for herself in fashion, she manages to impress industry patron Baroness von Hellman. But the world of high fashion is markedly different than Estella expected, leading her to morph into the noxious woman we know her as today. It is a story eight years in the making, and diehard fans of One Hundred and One

Nicolas Karakatsanis reveals why he used two different sensors to capture the origin story of Cruella, the deranged villain so enamoured with murdering spotty puppies
