The highly-anticipated Cruella de Vil origin story hits theaters this Friday, May 28. But if you’re not quite ready to brave the big screen crowds and would rather watch Emma Stone take on the iconic Disney villain from your own home, you can on Disney+. The movie is available through the streaming service’s Premier Access feature.
Emma Stone, who won an Oscar for her role in La La Land, takes on the role made iconic by Glenn Close in the original live-action 101 Dalmatians in 1996. The movie follows Cruella, whose real name is Estella, as she climbs from obscurity through the London fashion world in the 1970s. Her boss, Baroness (Emma Thompson), is brutal and spiteful, enough to drive Estella a little bit crazy.
But parents should take note that Cruella is rated PG-13, which is rare for a Disney film. For comparison, the Glenn Close version got a G rating, despite its premiere and plot — Cruella kidnapping puppies for the purpose of making them into a fur coat.

How to Watch Cruella
If you’re not a Disney+ subscriber, you can sign up here. But after you sign up, you will have to opt for Premier Access, which costs an additional $29.99. However, unlike a one-time movie rental, you can watch this movie as many times as you’d like — so iit’s cheaper than a family’s trip to the theater.
For those who’d rather wait, Cruella will join the Disney+ library for regular subscribers on Aug. 27.
