Emma Stone officially closed the deal with Disney

to replay the 101 Dalmatian villain in the sequel to Cruella, following the success of the original film which, like other recent studio titles such as

Black Widow


Jungle Cruise

, premiered simultaneously on cinemas and Disney +.

With a

box office income of 222 million dollars

, to which should be added the sales for premium access in the streaming service, the story that tells the origin of the iconic villain of 101 Dalmatians will have a continuation that will be directed by Craig Gillespie and written by Tony McNamara.

The news that Stone has signed on for the



is somewhat surprising given the recent controversy over the release of Disney movies in theaters and on Disney +.

Emma Stone will once again wear the villain dress in the sequel to Cruella.

Scarlett Johansson's case against Disney

Scarlett Johansson has sued Disney for the launch of Black Widow in this hybrid format, considering that it deprives him of the percentage of the profits at the box office that he agreed to by contract and there were rumors that

Stone was considering a similar lawsuit


"Disney intentionally induced Marvel to break the agreement, without justification, to prevent Ms. Johansson from realizing the full benefit of her deal with Marvel," said the lawsuit filed by the actress and also executive producer of the film, which

is it would have suffered the equivalent of some 50 million dollars


The truth is that Disney, by putting the movies on its own streaming platform, loses nothing, but wins everything.

Scarlett Johansson, who in addition to starring in Black Widow was its executive producer, would have lost to earn about 50 million dollars.

"How is this? Because it does not share the income from the box office of the cinemas, which is usually 50% for the owners of the cinemas, and the other 50% for the distributors or" owners ", in the case of Disney, of the film. So everything that is collected by streaming is net profit, "as Pablo Scholz explained in one of his

wide open



After the news of Johansson, the rumor jumped that Emma Stone, the protagonist of Cruella, could be thinking of also suing Disney for exactly the same, as reported by GQ Magazine in a timely manner.

The argument, once again, was based on how the premiere on the platform would have affected the film's box office revenues.

Emily Blunt too?

In parallel, it also

emerged that Emily Blunt would also join the list

of litigants against Disney, with the premiere of 

Jungle Cruise

as the axis of the claim and controversy.

That would not be unreasonable considering that both

she and her husband already faced Paramount

for the launch of

A Quiet Place 2

ahead of time on the platform of the production company.

Emily Blunt, who along with her husband John Krasinsky already faced Paramount, would now go against Disney.

However, the possibility of Stone taking the same path as Scarlett

is totally ruled out

with her signing to reprise her role as Estella Miller in

Cruella 2


Although her presence is not confirmed, it



to be expected that Emma Thompson will repeat

as Baroness von Hellman, a designer who is Estella's great rival.

Along with Stone and Thompson, Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, Emily Beecham, Kirby Howell-Baptiste and Mark Strong complete the cast of the original film.
