Expected Release Date of Cruella 2
Cruella has indeed attracted the audience and has demanded the sequel too, Cruella 2. The exact date of the release of Cruella 2 is not yet confirmed, but its happening. It is expected that the sequel will hit the theatres in the later half of 2024 or the early months of 2025. But fans need to stay updated to know for sure when it is going to happen.
Expected Cast and Crew
It is almost certain that Cruella 2 will be directed by Craig Gillespie and scripted by Tony McNamara. Though Emma Stone is busy with her current tasks, it is pretty sure that no one else can replace her role of Cruella, which she and the audience love too. Emma Thompson as the Baroness also had a significant impact in the former film, but it is uncertain whether we will see her in the upcoming sequel or not. So who will play the role then? New star? Will fans be okay with it? Of course, it’s a mystery.
Joe Fry and Paul Walter, who played Jasper and Horace respectively, are yet not confirmed to be playing their part in Cruella 2 but replacing them will surely dishearten the fans. They did an excellent role, and fans want no one else other than them. Mark Strong might also come back to be Cruella’s valet, John. It is almost certain that Kirby Howell-Baptiste and Kayvan Novak as Anita and Roger, respectively. Nonetheless, fans need to stay tuned to know more.
The Storyline that can be Anticipated
There is no current update regarding the plot of Cruella 2, but it is guessed that the sequel will be retelling and following its preceding story. It can also switch between periods to enhance and broaden the story’s impact. The story might be based on Cruella’s chasing of the puppies and her journey as an ill-famed criminal in the company of two other notorious thieves. She was seen giving away Pongo and Perdita to Roger and Anita.
So will the sequel deal with this vent too? Cruella portrayed the lead actress as someone very selfish and cruel but is it solely her fault? Or was it her destiny and circumstances that forced her to be so? Fans can do nothing but wait and guess to know more until anything is officially confirmed.
