“Cruella” is Disney’s latest live-action release where a beloved old movie gets a brand new life, starring two crowd-favorite Emmas: Emma Stone and Emma Thompson. Izzy and Diaodiao saw the movie together in the theater, and they dive into the themes of the movie, the complicated history of Disney villains, and the problematic elements in the movie that made us cringe (queerbaiting alert!)

  • 3:52 “Cruella” is way more awesome when watched in theaters and with friends 
  • 7:39 Disney villains: the moral and societal values they represent 
  • 9:29 Who is Cruella (old and new)
