"I feel like we've only just met her. I'd love to now see the full-blown Cruella, fully loaded. She's managed to get the support system around her and she can really expand on her brand. I'd love to see where that takes her and how you could almost destroy her from inside out, if she's not careful with all that power." says director Craig Gillespie in an interview.

There's no official word yet on which cast members will be joining Stone in Cruella 2, so we're unsure if veteran actor Mark Strong will be returning to reprise his role.

However, the first movie had a very open ending, leaving a lot of space for his character to be written in.

Mark Strong was reportedly "fascinated" to work with Stone, so he'll surely want to be included again.

"I was fascinated with her, how hard she worked. Because she has to carry that movie. And watching it, she’s just absolutely mesmerizing. " he said in an interview.

The ending of Cruella had the Baroness gritting in anger as she gets dragged into a police car. Cruella 2 could potentially feature the Baroness escaping from jail and getting her revenge against her former employee turned archnemesis.

We could also be seeing a plotline similar to 101 Dalmatians since the movie's post-credits scene slightly hinted towards that direction.

With the two Dalmatians being gifted to Roger and Anita, they could mate and make 101 puppies.
