Paul revealed”I’m told we’re doing it next year. I don’t know when but I think Tony McNamara is writing the script right now. He’s probably tinkering away with that.

“We got to work around the ever-busy schedule of Craig Gillespie and Emma Stone, who are worth the wait, so anytime they want to do it, I’ll be there.”

‘Cruella 2’ Plot Details

Cruella 2 is technically a sequel to the 101 Dalmatians prequel. An official plotline has not been revealed just yet, but the sequel is likely going to explore the next chapter of Cruella’s journey now that she’s fully embraced her wicked persona. Cruella’s continued rise as a fashion designer could also be a focal point. You know what’s a sure thing? More epic style moments from Cruella.

Anita and Roger still have to get together like they do in 101 Dalmatians. While the Baroness is in jail at the moment, she could find herself coming face-to-face with Cruella one last time. Plus, what would happen if the Baroness learned the truth about Cruella? That would be one juicy story. How far would Cruella go to protect her secret? Could she prove to be more like her mother than she wants to believe?

Release Date

Cruella 2 does not have a release date. The movie has not started filming yet. Emma is gearing up to begin filming a Showtime series called The Curse, which is going into production before the Cruella sequel. It’s looking like Cruella 2 won’t be hitting theaters until late 2023 at the earliest.

The film’s makeup artists Nadia Stacey and Julia Vernon confirmed that a script was being written for a ‘Cruella’ sequel at the Academy Awards earlier this year.

Stacey said: “They’re working on the script at the moment.”

She also hoped that the new project will be set in the 1980s to give her more opportunity to explore the style of the characters.

Stacey said: “My only hope is, I know nothing, but my hope is we’re moving into the 80s… get your rollers out, lots of perms. We’d have such a new era to explore.”

Director Craig Gillespie did suggest that there was plenty of scope for more movies based around the character of Cruella as the first movie only scraped the surface.

He said: “I feel like we’ve only just met her. I’d love to now see the full-blown Cruella, fully loaded. She’s managed to get the support system around her and she can really expand on her brand.

“I’d love to see where that takes her and how you could almost destroy her from inside out, if she’s not careful with all that power.”
