Emma A U film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over, although it is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child.

U films should be set within a positive framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror. If a work is particularly suitable for pre-school children, this will be indicated in the ratings info.

News from around the web

A new trailer has been release by Disney for their new origin movie Cruella which stars Emma Stone and is released on 28th May 2021.

The new trailer really showcases how Emma Stone os going to portray the crazed character and there is very much a hint of Batman's Joker spilling through.

We also get a good idea of Emma Thompson character, and she looks fantastic as Cruella's boss Baroness, thre is more to her than meets the eye.

Cruella

The movie doesn't have long until its released and judging from this trailer we could have a good origins movie on our hands come May 28th.

The first trailer and poster has been released for upcoming Disney movie Cruella, both can be seen below.

The movie is directed by Craig Gillespie and has a cast including the likes of Emma Stone and Mark Strong, while the release date of the film is 28th May 2021.

After Bond 25, No Time To Die, steals the release date of Fast And Furious 9 the studio has moved the Vin Diesel movie to a little later in the year, May 28th.

The movie had already been moved from its original release date in 2020 to a year later, April 2nd 2021, then Universal moved No Time To Die to that date and we can't have 2 high profile action movies on the same day.

The only option was to move the car movie, a move which suggests that Universal has more faith in the Bond franchise than the Fast And Furious franchise, despite what the box office figures might suggest, but there we have it, a jiggle around for some high profile movies.

The new release date for F9 is Memorial Day in America and Bonds new release date is over the Easter period in the UK so maybe they are catering for the different markets!

<u><i><b>Emma</b></i></u> Stone in Cruella

With the move to may 28th it now clashes with Disney's live action Cruella (from the 101 Dalmatian universe) which stars Emma Stone as the title character, so expect that to either move or go to Disney+.

We're sure there are more changes to come so stay tuned for the latest information.
