Cruella Trailer Recut With Joker Audio Makes It Look Like A DC Prequel Movie

Immediately after its release, the trailer for Disney’s Cruella began drawing comparisons to Todd Phillips’ Joker and now the trailer has been recut to demonstrate how seamless the comparison really is. Cruella will act as a live-action prequel to 101 Dalmatians and star Emma Stone as the iconic Disney villainess Cruella de Vil.

The new trailer for Disney’s Cruella origin story follows the titular character’s early years as an aspiring fashion designer in 1970s London. During these years, Cruella develops a peculiar fascination with dog fur. Hours after the trailer dropped, Joker began trending on Twitter, showing just how many fans were struck by the similarities in tone. Users even coined the term “Disney’s Joker” to refer to Cruella.

One Twitter user even went as far as to recut the Cruella trailer with audio from a trailer for Todd Phillips’ 2019 Joker, and the result was surprisingly seamless. Matt Highton on Twitter posted the mashed-up trailer, clarifying that the only editing he did was swapping the audio. “It goes nearly beat for beat, which probably tells you more about trailer construction than anything else,” he noted.
