Andy's KSL-TV Mini-Review:  The Emmas shine in Disney’s colorful ‘Cruella’

In this minisode, host Andy Farnsworth reviews the latest live-action Disney villain turned hero film, this time tackling the wicked fashionista icon herself, “Cruella.” The revisioning of the evil character places a young Estella/Cruella, played by Emma Stone, in England’s 1970s fashion scene where her genius, talent, and patience is tried by her news boss played by Emma Thompson, a leading designer in London known as the Baroness. The Baroness turns out to be the true evil-genius of the film as Estella disguises herself as a mysterious avant-garde designer named, you guessed it, Cruella, and begins a guerilla-type fashion war against the Baroness.  But don’t worry, Cruella has help from friends lovers of the classic “101 Dalmatians” will recognize as well as some new adorable dogs to love. With stunning visuals, spectacular costuming, a killer soundtrack, and both talented Emmas, it’s a movie most Disney lovers will enjoy.  Beyond Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Gaming and Tech, the brains behind Fan Effect are connoisseurs of categories surpassing the nerdy.
