Emma Stone has sent her fans wild with the first trailer for Disney live-action film Cruella.

The film charts the early years of the iconic 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella de Vil, with Oscar winner Stone stepping into her fashionable shoes.

The trailer shows off some eye-popping aesthetics and also allows us to hear Emma deliver a British accent as the fabulously evil character.

But how did Cruella turn out to be so evil?

The official synopsis reads: "Cruella, which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs.

"She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets.
