“It’s very different from Joker in many ways,” Stone said in an interview with Total Film, however she went on to complement that film’s lead actor, Joaquin Phoenix, rather than dig further into why the films are different.

Craig Gillespie, the movie director, did explain a little, but: “There are some really deep, emotional things that Cruella’s dealing with that send her to the villainous darker side. So, in that sense, it is similar,” Gillespie said. 

However, Gillespie also added that “there’s a lot of absolutely delightful banter and rhythm to the style of it,” which is definitely not the tone taken by the grim, violent Joker.

We already have witnessed Cruella’s sense of humor in its promotion as well as the excellent, punk-influenced attires the character will be sporting. 

All the while exploring how an edgy fashionista’s path will lead her from a high-fashion runway to a chasing down Dalmatian puppies for the darkest possible intent. We get the full picture of this new movie when it hits to theaters and on Disney+ on May 28th.
