102 dalmatians (2000) is the sequel to the hit 101 Dalmatians (1996), which again starred Glenn Close as Cruel Hell and the direction of Kelvin Lima, who later directed other disney movies: Tarzan (1999) and Enchanted (2007). Once again, Chloe, Kevin and the puppies will fall victim to Cruella’s boundless evil and her obsession with fur coats.
If anything characterized the character of Glenn Close, it was her wardrobe, but the actress objected to wearing real fur coats. The actress admitted in an interview with Variety magazine that she kept her character’s costumes.
Something that worried at the time Disney producers and to animal protection associations, the desire of spectators to have a Dalmatian at home; in fact, they became the trending dog breed in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The big fear was the increase in abandoned pets and the illegal sale of the breed.

Last year, Disney created the Cruella spin-off, starring actress Emma Stone. This classic competes in the Oscars in the categories Best Costume Design for Jenny Beavan and Best Makeup and Hairstyling for Nobody Stacey, Naomi Donne and Julia Vernon. Given its success and receptivity to the public, Disney should make a new sequel.
The 102 Dalmatians allow children to tackle subjects such as abandoned animal shelters, the work of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Peta or even the shortcomings of the fashion industry.
