    • You forgot there was 101 Dalmatian (Show) in 1997 then we got a 2nd movie in 2002 called 101 Dalmatians Patches London Adventure, And in 2019 We got 101 Dalmatian Street

    • This movie, birds of prey, and the joker from suicide squad has completely destroyed the term Edgy. The only thing edgy here are the borders of the screen you are watching it on.

  • Dunno why yall thunk she's gonna be misunderstood like maleficent, it looks more like its about her descent to madness like the joker which us fime but still unoriginal

  • I don’t think the movie Cruella is trying to depict Cruella as a misunderstood hero, it’s just a fun movie with a cunning protagonist.

  • Do these remakes have something against making the character stand out? Old disney films specifically made the main character dress in a certain color to stand out yet in the remake everyone is wearing the main characters signiture color giving me an eye sore trying to find them lol.

  • The reasons they’re milking live action is probably because they butchered Star Wars. They figured they could pump out any old shit under the title and it’d be beloved. When it all went to shit they went into overdrive trying to recoup their losses. Hence the reliance on remaking films that they know work. They’re playing it safe because they daren’t do anything decent for fear of more loss

  • I think the whole point of Cruella's self-aggrandizement throughout the trailer is meant to illustrate the extent of her evil/insanity. It isn't supposed to be taken seriously. Almost like she's going to be a villain.

  • I really like Maleficent, though. But I do think it's weird that they're trying to redeem a character that we already know the motivations and how cruel she is (I mean, unlike Cruella, we didn't really know Maleficent's story and her motivations to do the things she's done, so, in my opinion, it's okay to write a story telling her pov)

  • Instead of making her a role model, why not make her the opposite? Have the whole movie with her thinking she is in the right and telling the audience she is right and that she is just misunderstood and fights to prove that, while showing the complete opposite. Have her fight the antagonist, thinking that she is in the right and is the good guy when she is just as bad or even worse than her. Like maybe at the end, have her end up worse then the antagonist, and instead of proving herself to be a misunderstood she proves just how right everybody was about her, that she isn't a strong, independent misunderstood person, she is just a crazy, messed up, overall cruel person who is just as bad as the oppresors in her life. The ending could either have her forever in denial or just have her give up and embrace it, maybe showing girls what happens when you go too far or something. Basically instead of having her as a role model have her be an example of what not to be. Or to be even more simple just do what joker did.

  • They should take a page out of the musical play "Twisted". There's a scene where all the Disney villians come out and talk about how they were misunderstood and then Cruella comes out and talks about how she just wanted a coat made from puppies, then all the villians start to shame her.

  • Simple answer... Disney never did anything "new" all of thr Disney stories are derived from thr folk tales of different countries or regions. Taking out the interesting stuff and anything that didnt fit with white/male/Christian supremacy...and thr parts that were inappropriate for children of corse.

  • I honestly don't think the trailer has enough material to criticize this heavily. If the movie does try to turn Cruella into a misunderstood anti-hero, I'll be mad, but I don't think the trailer has proven that yet. The trailer is from Cruella's point of view, and obviously Cruella doesn't think of herself as a villain. No villain does. If the movie only shows her side of the story, that's uncool, but if it subverts and reveals her lies/delusions, it could be good.

  • Disney rarely came up with anything new. Nearly every mainstream animated feature they've made has been a remake of a classic fairy tale or children's story. Their original stories that click are few and far between. Today they've realized they're out of ideas, so all they can do is remake their own movies and give villains their own standalone backstory films.

  • It only makes sense that Disney would want to rewrite history to make villains into heroes. Walt himself was a suspected Nazi supporter, until the war broke out, and then Disney started profiteering by making propaganda films for the US. Yet Walt is held out to be a saint.

  • When I saw the trailer I also had the sudden realization that they were going to appeal to the feminists. I remembered this one iconic line from the original life action remake, where Cruella is salty that the protagonist lady would give up her career to become a housewife, and the duality and the implications of that line. That it was dubious and undesirable to be a career woman because the villain/ antagonist was saying it, so therefore it must be wrong ; that’s so telling. I am a woman and wether you decide to become a house wife of a career woman, whatever makes you happy. But. I remembered that line and I was like, there was more controversial feminist agenda in that one line in the OG live action remake (which is my trash, I love Glen Close and all the puppies) than in that whooooole new movie. I could already tell my eyes were going to roll back in their sockets eventually being bored enough to wait this movie

  • I really do feel like there are *some* Disney villains who could be interesting to explore, like Ursula or Dr. Facillier. Don't make them tragic heroes, but explaining *how* they became the villains we know and loathe could be fun. Cruella de Ville literally wanted to wear puppies. You cannot, and should not, make her sympathetic in any way.

  • Disney has had its down years before where creativity went bankrupt for the most part. First time around the time first Rescuers was made which flopped, prompting Disney to do more shitty live action. 90's animator renaissance saved their asses, then another new drought happened in the early 2000's. Them re-buying their old animators back by bringing in Pixar breathed somewhat new life again. And now we're experiencing Disney's 3rd drought where complacency rules the day.

  • I don't think the same person should put Disney down for putting a new spin on an old character and praise the Joker, which literally did the same thing. I don't think the concept itself is what's bad, it all depends on the end result. (I love Joker btw.) I honestly think this movie looks interesting. Maybe it's a bit too much wishful thinking on my part that it will be decent considering Disney's track record, but I don't think the idea itself is bad or lazy.

  • "something tells me that well-known male villains won't be getting the same treatment" at least there's twisted: an untold story (I think they actually tried to add some depth to Jafar in the Aladdin remake, but they mostly wound up making him blander... why couldn't they have given him a proper villain song instead?? oh yeah they were too busy "empowering" Jasmine)

  • I liked 101 and 102 Dalmatians because Glenn Close is/was *made* to be Cruella. Emma Stone? I could see her being the daughter of Cruella or something, but not her. Also, I am so glad I don't have Twitter anymore, because then I'd have to see shit like "Cruella de Girlboss!" and unironically supporting the murder of puppies because we have fallen that low as a species.

  • Uhh, I only watched this because it auto played when I wasn’t paying attention. I avoided it because I honestly thought it was a review of the awful live action Dalmatians movie from who knows how long ago. A minute in, I realized my mistake, and then could not focus on the rest of your review. I was too busy thinking, “why?” And when you got to your wrap up, I snapped out of it as you asked the same question. There is next to no originality left out there. Thumbs up from me.

Tragic backstory?- was almost killed by his dad Igniting incident?- was cheated out from his rightful position by his brothers (also contributes to his motivation in the animated movie) Expansion on the original story?- Hey, how about we address the fact that the Gods on Olympus are actually huge jerks at best and awful human being at worst (insert your meta commentary on the Hollywood culture here) Come on Disney, if you wanna make a more "serious" movie why won't you take a source material that would actually benefit from the said "serious" tone and resemble the original story at least tiny bit more.

  • I'm guessing killing animals is going to be justified in her story or a "bad" girl, making this one of the movies with the most ammount of cliches that I won't be seeing. *Or* A movie genuinly about the already well known and written villain, that adds to her story while making it within the characters range (doesn't just add stuff to make her likeable), and properly explains why she actually became this obsessed with animal fur, in the first place.

  • Actually you can do that fabric burning thing... It's made by soaking the fabric with some chemicals that once dry don't allow the fire to create a flame, and only burn the fabric into ashes immediately, thus avoiding a fire :) it may not look as cinematographic and "aesthetic", if one could say this approach has any of those things, it would be very uneven haha but essentially that would be it
