Cruella’s costume designer Jenny Beavan reveals that her work on Mad Max: Fury Road was actually more of a challenge due to the post-apocalyptic world.
Cruella Costume designer Jenny Beavan reveals Mad Max: Fury Road it was his biggest challenge. Cruella is Disney’s remake of a villain’s origin story following the success of his Pernicious franchise. Emma Stone takes on the title role, starring opposite Emma Thompson’s Baroness von Hellman. The film’s images and footage have sparked a slightly darker Disney story, with Cruella receiving a PG-13 rating. Although it was originally scheduled for a traditional theatrical release in December 2020, it will now debut simultaneously in theaters and on Disney + as part of the streamer’s Premier Access tier.
Considering fashion is a big part of CruellaIn the story, it seems like it would be an exciting movie to work on from a costume design perspective. However, it is just one of a myriad of exciting projects that Beavan has been a part of. He won the Academy Award for Best Costume Design for his work in 1986 A room with a view. Beavan has been a major figure in the industry since the late 70s, contributing to beloved films such as Sense and Sensibility, Sherlock Holmes, and of course, Mad Max: Fury Road.
For Comic book, Beavan spoke about his work at a press conference for Cruella. She explained that the next Disney movie was not hers. “biggest challenge“and explained why that honor goes to Mad Max: Fury Road.
I don’t think it was my biggest challenge. I’d say Mad Max was because it was way out of my comfort zone, but it also opened up a virtually entirely new career for me because I’d done a lot of beautiful but, you know, period dramas of a particularly English sort of Victorian style. Regency ages, I think people were a bit surprised that I could approach the post-apocalyptic world in a pretty disgusting way. That was great. But that was probably the biggest challenge. Because, like I said, I couldn’t have been more out of my comfort zone. [Cruella] I was more in my comfort zone, because I remember the 70s, and the story is very clear. There are many things to hold on to with Cruella. Our – our problem was time … He had an incredible team, an incredible team. And somehow we did. So, bless them.
Beavan’s explanation of why Mad Max: Fury Road it was a tough nut to crack it makes perfect sense. The movie looks incredibly specific, unlike anything seen outside of the franchise. Also, before Path of fury, the most recent Mad max The film came out in 1985, making it difficult to use as an inspiration today. However, even if it was Beavan’s greatest professional challenge, it is clear that his work on the film was a success; got his second Oscar for it.
With many already talking about the exquisite costumes in Cruella, it is not out of the realm of possibility that Beavan will go with the gold again. So far audiences have only gotten a taste of the fashion they can expect to see in the movie, but even that – especially Cruella’s fiery transformation – has them craving for more once the movie opens. The Academy tends to reward costume designers in fashion-focused films, with Patricia Field, for example, earning a nomination for her work on The Devil Wears Prada. It may depend on the general reception for CruellaBut it is possible that the film will become another professional record for Beavan.
