S2E33: Interview with Emma Stone and Emma Thompson for Cruella

Geek Girls Universe Podcast

We had the chance to interview Emma Stone and Emma Thompson for their new film Cruella. Not only that but we also heard from the filmmakers about what it took to bring this most villainous villain to life. No spoilers here but we have seen the film, and we absolutely loved it. Interview with Emma Stone and Emma Thompson for Cruella We were delighted that Disney went dark with Cruella. How could you not? The woman eventually wants a spotted puppy coat. Emma Stone:  They really let Craig and Tony write and make what they wanted to make. I think it’s definitely dark for a Disney movie. It was darker than I’ve seen a Disney movie for a good long time. Related: Learn about the Music of Cruella Craig has worked on villain stories in the past like I, Tonya, What is it about the villains and what attracted you to Cruella’s story? Craig: (Laughs) I mean, villains are always so fun to portray, because you just have more license to do things that aren’t quite appropriate or push the boundaries, and create these larger-than-life characters. It was really important to me that this was not black and white. Obviously, no pun intended there with Cruella. But I wanted there to be this gray area and be able to empathize with the choices that she was making. And I wanted to do it in a way that was really fun.   Related: Interview Emma Stone and Emma Thompson on all things Cruella If you had to pick between Estella and Cruella who would it be? They are both so different. Emma Stone: I think Estella is sweet, but she’s not fully embodied. So I would say there is something about Cruella that’s pretty enticing because she just kind of is who she is. She’s in full acceptance and autonomy there. So I am kind of interested in that Cruella world. That said she does some things, crosses some lines that I don’t think I would necessarily cross. But to be honest, I sort of prefer Cruella. Related: Behind the Scenes of Cruella: Interview with the Filmmakers The set pieces in this film are phenomenal. What was the biggest challenge when creating Cruella’s world? Fiona: I think the biggest challenge was actually the number sets. The film has great pace and we move around a lot. There are lots of little moments that require different sets. And so we were very busy. There were 120-odd sets to do across the course of the shoot. Some of them are enormous and some of them are tiny. I think one of the things that I’m most pleased about with the film is the level of detail in every single one of those sets.  Listen to the podcast and check out the links above for the full interview. Cruella is in theaters and on Disney+ Premiere Access May 28, 2021. Tickets are on sale now.

#7 - Fat Out - Conversation with Emma Thompson

The Scene was Dead Anyway

Emma Thompson – founder of Fat Out – an independent music promotion based in Salford, England. Founded in 2008, Fat Out has grown from its humble DIY punk roots into a force to be reckoned with in the Salford/Manchester independent music scene. Fat Out was initially set up to put on their friends bands and other touring acts they had witnessed in the niche but thriving D.I.Y scene in Milton Keynes, centred around Don Mclean’s Fortissimo Records. Well over a decade into promoting, the shows have steadily gotten bigger and more diverse, but their DIY ethics remain unchanged, turning Fat Out from an occasional gig/party organisers into a fully-fledged and nationally recognised concert promotion.
