Emma Stone will indeed be back in Cruella 2. The actress has reached an agreement with Disney to reprise her role in the sequel.
It’s official, Emma Stone will be back in Cruella’s costume for a second installment which should be released in 2023. According to Deadline, the actress has reached an agreement with Disney to take over the role of the mythical villain of 101 Dalmatians.
After the Scarlett Johansson case against Disney, who allegedly broke her contract by releasing Black Widow in theaters and on Disney +, rumors were circulating about a possible complaint from Emma Stone, who was in the same case with Cruella.
Obviously, it is not, because the actress will indeed be back in a second part, still directed by Craig Gillespie. Released on May 18 in the USA and June 23 in France, the feature film grossed $ 222 million worldwide. In France, it attracted 1.4 million spectators.
“This agreement demonstrates that there can be a way forward that is fair, that protects artists and aligns the interests of studios with talent. We are proud to work alongside Emma Stone and Disney and appreciate the will of the studio to recognize the contribution of the actress as a creative partner “, said Endeavor president Patrick Whitesell, who represents the actress.
Will Cruella 2 be released in theaters and on Disney +, like the first opus? No information was disclosed on this subject.
