What’s new on Disney+ 

Hello Cruel World 

The all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains,  the legendary Cruella de Vil. The film, 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.

One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the  Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, but their relationship sets in motion a course of events  and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella.
