The next Disney movie Cruella offers a reinvention of the origin story of Cruella de Vil, the main antagonist of the 101 Dalmatians franchise. The trailer for the film was released recently, prompting a number of comparisons to the trailer for Warner Bros. ‘daring reinvention. bat Man origin of the supervillain Joker in 2019 jester. Now comedian Matthew Highton has combined the two trailers, and it’s a little creepy how well they fit together. Highton posted the combined trailer on Twitter with the following message.

“It turns out that if you superimpose the sound of the jester from Cruella, it fits so well that you have a prequel about Joker’s mother. “

The edited video demonstrates that Cruella It could easily be Cruella’s origin story, played by Emma Stone, the mother of Arthur Fleck, aka Joker, who, like her son, suffered a mental breakdown due to her clashes with high society, prompting her transformation. . in the manic Cruella de Vil.

However, that’s where the comparisons end, as Arthur’s mother in jester was a sickly secretary who died in poverty, while Cruella became a wealthy tycoon who dreamed of making a coat from the fur of Dalmatian puppies, before being quite ignominiously defeated by the puppies themselves.

One cannot help but suspect that the creators of Cruella were more than a little inspired by the success of jester, both critically and commercially. It is interesting to consider how Cruella basically seeks to do for its main character what jester made for the Clown Prince of Crime, that is, reinventing the backstory of an outright villain to show that his descent into villainy was driven by social factors rather than being inherently evil.

Of course, the biggest difference between the two movies is that jester It was an R-rated movie, which made the most of its rating to show horrific acts of violence. On the other hand, Cruella It’s a Disney product, so all the violence that takes place in the movie will be kid-friendly.

One thing we do know is that this time, Cruella won’t go to the main villain. Instead, that role will be played by Emma Thompson, whose character in Cruella has been described as “an antagonist to Cruella who is believed to be instrumental in her transformation into the villain we know today.”

Cruella’s trailer has already racked up impressive numbers, with more than 71 million views in less than twenty-four hours. It seems that the public is really interested in the trip of the vaunted madman of 101 Dalmatians, who in Stone’s expert hands, does not appear to be laughing or angry, but rather like a mastermind who smiles and does all kinds of mischief in his quest to become an icon in the world of haute couture. Directed by Craig Gillespie, Cruella stars Emma Stone, Emma Thompson, Paul Walter Hauser, Joel Fry, and Emily Beecham. The film hits theaters on May 28.
