Summer Must See Movies :: Part 1 – Disney’s Live Action Cruella

Comes in singing “Summa’ Summa’ Summa’ Time!” by DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith. That’s the anthem every summer!

I’m so excited about all the new movies and TV shows that are coming out this summer. If you are a movie / TV buff like me, you should be excited, too!

One of my favorites this summer is Disney’s live action Cruella!

Well worth $30 for premier access, Disney did an amazing job giving her the background story she deserves. She is actually one of my favorite Disney villains, just to give you an idea of how excited I was when I found out about this movie.

Emma Stone is amazing. The action and comedy are off the charts. Let’s not forget to mention the fashion. OMG, the outfits and styling in this movie were chef’s kiss. Another great feature to the movie is the soundtrack; every scene has a song that told the story.

The live action Cruella gave me Devil Meets Prada vibes but with action and a plot twist.

Background (without spoilers)

Estella will later be known as “Cruella,” a clever, feisty and creative girl who dreamed of being a fashion designer and caught the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend in London. As she starts working for the Baroness, Estella learns hidden truths about her past that cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the well “beloved” Cruella.

Estella continues her duties with the Baroness during the day, but Cruella creates havoc at night, especially during any and all of the Baroness events. By making bold appearances at the events and making headlines, the Baroness is getting more upset by the day.

SN: When watching, pay attention to little details; I’ve watched it three times and have learned something new each time.

When an incident occurs leaving Estella in a life-or-death situation, Cruella rises from the ashes and this is how Cruella is born.

The family friendly movie truly a must-see of the summer.

I can appreciate how the writers created this background story for this villain. Every villain has a back story. That’s what makes them who they are.

Be on the lookout for more of my favorite summer favorite movies and shows. What are some of your favorites? Have you seen Disney’s Cruella? Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the movie.
