Remember that cute Disney movie '101 Dalmatians,' with those polka dotted doggos and that half black, half silver haired villain? Yup, it's getting a second live-action remake, except now it's going to be about Cruella de Vil's backstory.

And the best part? Emma Stone is staring in it as the main character!

Disney revealed the news of Emma Stone playing the evil villain last Saturday, during the D23 Expo in California, and they also teased fans with a bad-ass image of the actress on their Instagram.

In both the 1961 animated version, and the 1996 live-action adaptation of the film, Cruella de Vil plays a rich, spoiled old lady charcter, who would literally run to the ends of the Earth in order to steal dalmation puppies for their fur. 

Similar to the original villian, Emma Stone is dressed in an elegant punk-rock outfit with blood-red lips and heavy eye make-up. 

The only main difference this time is the fact that they ditched Cruella de Vil's signature fur coat with full leather instead. 

Due to its dark tones, some people were convince the Disney film would be directed by Tim Burton. 

And while most approved with the new Cruella dressed in all leather, some were incredibly disappointed as it took away the essence of the film. 

But Stone made a video appearance during the expo, revealing that the film will be set in London's punk rock era of the 1970s, soooo we think going for leather rather than fur is understandable in this case.

The film, starring Stone, Emma Thompson, Paul Walter Hauser and Joel Fry, will hit theaters on May 28, 2021.
