Starring Emma Stone as the fashionable Cruella de Vil, the film will explore the early years of the character's life in London before she became the puppy-stealing villain we know her as. As we see in the trailer, Cruella - or Estrella as she was then known - is an aspiring fashion designer determined to make a name for herself.

Fans quickly took to Twitter to give their verdict on Emma's take as the iconic villain and it seems many were saying the same thing about the actress's British accent.

The official synopsis for the film reads: "Cruella 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."
