“Not at all. She has two movies to look at,” Close told the outlet at the Through Her Lens: The Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program Luncheon in New York City.
Close, who starred as the Dalmatian fur-loving House of DeVil fashion owner in the 1996 live-action adaptations of “101 Dalmatians” in 1996 and its 2000 sequel, “102 Dalmatians," said she wasn’t at all upset about the lack of contact because she feels her rendition of Cruella has run its course and it’s now time for a new generation.
“I can’t wait to see what she did,” said Close. “My Cruella was that, and we’ll see something new.”
Stone gave Disney fans a sneak peek into her appearance as the new-age Cruella de Vil at the D23 Expo fan event in August. She also revealed that the film, billed as a prequel to "101 Dalmatians", is set during the punk rock era of the 1970s.
In the teaser image, Stone dons Cruella de Vil’s recognizable two-tone black and white hairstyle with three of her own spotted Dalmatians in tow.
“Cruella” is scheduled to be released in theaters on May 28, 2021.
