Cruella stars Emma Stone as the title character with the likes of Emma Thompson and Mark Strong featuring in supporting roles.

Cruella is set to be released on May 28 at theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access simultaneously so there are plenty of ways to watch the movie. The most tempting way, of course, is to watch it from the comfort of your own home. All you need to do is have a subscription to Disney+ and pay $30 to gain access to Cruella. From there, you can watch it as many times as you want so it’s ideal if your kids love to rewatch their favorite movies. There’s no need to keep paying any additional fees. Of course, if you’re not already a Disney+ subscriber, you’ll need to sign up for that, but it’s one of the best value streaming services out there right now.

For just $8 per month, you can enjoy a wide range of content including all things Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars. That means you can work your way through the Marvel Cinematic Universe before switching it up and watching a classic Disney or Pixar movie any time you want. Disney+ is the home to The Simpsons too so there’s plenty for you to watch here at a bargain price.

Whatever you decide, don’t forget that Cruella will be available through Disney+ Premier Access from May 28 and it’s sure to be worth checking out.
