(KGTV) — "This vampire bat. This inhuman beast. She ought to be locked up, and never released."

Saturday, Disney released a still showing actress Emma Stone in it's upcoming film "Cruella," due in theaters May 28, 2021.

A still released at the fan convention D23 Expo in Anaheim showed off Stone, with parted, frizzy black and white hair, heavy black eye makeup, and a checkered, leather getup.

Stone is flanked by actors Paul Walter Hauser and Joel Fry as Horace and Jasper, as she grips tightly to the leashes of three Dalmatians.

The film, directed by Craig Gilespie, will reportedly follow a young De Vil in 1970s London and have a punk rock vibe to it, Stone said at the reveal Saturday.

The last time Disney fans were treated to a live-action version of the famed villain was in 1996's "101 Dalmations," when actress Glenn Close took on the iconic black and white hair.
