Mere two weeks after the release of Cruella, Disney Studios has already started working on a sequel, with the returns of director Craig Gillespie and screenwriter Tony McNamara. To say the film received an overwhelming response, would be an understatement, clearly!
“Sensational”, “wildly entertaining”, “a spectacle” = Disney’s #Cruella. Experience it now in theaters or order it on #DisneyPlus with Premier Access (additional fee required). https://t.co/qBcOyb06pe pic.twitter.com/41W27KvWvb

However, not much has yet to be released, especially on whether Stone will reprise her role as the iconic villain, remains a mystery for now, but, according to Variety, it’s “unclear how a sequel would work without her.” Presumably, Paul Walter Hauser and Joel Fry, who play Cruella’s accomplices Horace and Jasper in the film, would also be back for more fur-loving fun.
The film was released in theaters and on Disney+ on May 28, garnering a staggering $26.5 million at the box office over the long Memorial Day weekend.
“We are very pleased with Cruella’s box office success, in conjunction with its strong Disney+ Premier Access performance to date,” a Disney spokesperson said in a statement. “The film has been incredibly well received by audiences around the world, with a 97% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes in addition to A’s in every demographic from CinemaScore on opening weekend, ranking it among the most popular of our live-action reimaginings. We look forward to a long run as audiences continue to enjoy this fantastic film.”
