How to watch Cruella online in the U.S.

Disney+ offers extensive streaming content via its service including all things Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars. It also has its Disney+ Premium Access service which means if you pay $30, you get to see a brand new movie at home on the same day as it’s released at theaters. That’s the plan for Cruella with a simultaneous release at theaters and Disney+. If you don’t want to hit the big screen or you’d simply prefer to stay at home, it’s a great way for the whole family to enjoy an exciting new movie.

Elsewhere, you also get to enjoy the entire catalog of Disney properties including the likes of exclusive shows such as WandaVision and The Mandalorian, all for just $7 per month or $70 per year. Keen to watch more Disney+ content? We’ve got all the best movies on Disney+ right now too.

Directed by Craig Gillespie, Cruella is the third live-action film in the 101 Dalmatians franchise and it focuses on the life of Cruella de Vil before she became an evil villain. Set in the 1970s in London during the punk rock movement, it follows Estella de Vil, an aspiring fashion designer, as she explores the path that will lead to her becoming a notorious criminal.  Emma Stone brings her own spin to the notorious Cruella, and the film also features Emma Thompson as a head of a prestigious fashion house, as well as Paul Walter Hauser as a thief hired by Estella/Cruella as she acts out her dastardly plans.

If you want to watch Cruella online now, then you can sign up for Disney+ for just $7 per month or $70 per year before buying the film via Disney+ Premier Access. If you’re looking for a more expansive streaming bundle, then you can also grab The Disney Bundle which costs just $13 per month and includes Disney+ along with Hulu (ad-supported) and ESPN+, saving you 25% on their combined subscription prices. If you already have any of these services, you can still upgrade to The Disney Bundle and get the same discount.

Will there be a Disney+ Black Friday deal? What to expect in 2023
The Disney+ logo against a blue gradient background.

Disney+ is one of the best streaming services out there right now. It's certainly one of the most popular, which isn't surprising considering the properties Disney owns. The Disney+ app lets you watch hundreds of hours of kids Disney and Pixar movies, action adventure movies from the Star Wars and Marvel properties, raunchy animated shows like the Simpsons, and educational documentaries from National Geographic. There's something for every age group.

At $8 per month for the basic plan, Disney+ is one of the cheaper streaming services. There are a few other tiers and ways to bundle the service, which we'll go over below. But what are the chances for a Disney Plus Black Friday deal? Let's look at what Disney offered last year to help weigh the odds.
Will there be a Disney Plus Friday deal?
We shook a Magic 8 ball on this one, and it said "Reply hazy, try again." Just kidding, but the answer certainly isn't clear. In 2022, Disney did not offer a Black Friday deal for Disney+. Not only that, but they raised the price of Disney+ a few weeks after Black Friday. Maybe they figured holding off on the price increase was in itself a sort of discount. From that info alone, the likelihood of a Disney+ Black Friday deal seems low.
