We look forward to a long run as audiences continue to enjoy this fantastic film.”

Ahead of Cruella‘s premiere, Stone opened up to ET about her over 40 outfit changes in Cruella and how “incredible” the experience was for her.

“[Costume designer] Jenny Beavan just had the time of her life. She kept saying this is how she dressed in the ’70s, this is what she knew,” Stone told ET’s Nischelle Turner. “It was the way that she built the world, these costumes, these women were just on another level entirely. It was just incredible.”

“I loved the garbage dress. Popping out of the garbage pile and then that extreme train, it was so, so cool,” she added, of which on-screen look she loves most. “I thought that was gorgeous. It’s really hard to choose a favorite because they’re all so brilliant and so detailed-oriented.”
