Cruella and more: The breakdown of live-action Disney

  Cruella and more: The breakdown of live-action Disney Disney movies often make us nostalgic, whether you're seeing them for the second time round or the hundredth time. In recent years, Disney is on a roll with their live-action remakes, and they're showing no signs of stopping! The hottest buzz right now is around Emma Stone's reinvention of Disney's most fabulous villain: Cruella de Vil. The live-action adaptation of the animated classic '101 Dalmatians' will actually be Miss de Vil's origin story, set in the 1970s. Disney announced a new trailer, and released a poster with a black-and-white close-up of Stone in a very glam-punk take on the nefarious fashionista, and fans cannot wait for more. Of course, Stone has big shoes to fill, as the animated film already had a 1996 live-action remake starring Glenn Close as Cruella. This new backstory, of young fashion designer Estella de Vil whose obsession for dog fur earns her the nickname of a lifetime, will be out in May. Until then, click and find out more about these remakes, past and future.

(Reuters) - Imola's return to the Formula One calendar this season will be quite a mouthful for commentators if they refer to the grand prix by its full title and use the circuit's Italian name.

Tyre supplier Pirelli said on Friday that it would be title sponsor of the second race of the year at the circuit near Bologna on April 18.

"Formula One Pirelli Gran Premio del Made in Italy e dell’Emilia Romagna. Proud to be the backer of what is probably the longest race name in @F1 history!," the company said on Twitter.

Imola's full name is the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari, after the late Ferrari founder and his son.

Past races at Imola have been designated the San Marino Grand Prix but last year's, the first at the circuit since 2006, was called the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix after the surrounding region.
