Emma Stone stars as the titular villain Cruella and explores Cruella’s origins and evil exploits in the run-up to the events of 101 Dalmatians. Cruella is one of Disney’s most anticipated releases of 2021 and the trailers for the famous villain’s origin story look fantastic. It’s worth noting that to watch Cruella at home, you will need to purchase it via Disney Premier Access which commands a pretty hefty fee of £19.99.

Panic is an Amazon original television series, based on the novel of the same name by Lauren Oliver. This young adult series follows a group graduating seniors who must engage in a competition, in what they believe is their one chance to escape their town. From the trailers, Panic looks like a teen-based Hunger Games come psychological thriller.
