"Hogwarts...?" You don't see the resemblance? Similar looking uniform, right down to the patch.

Um...that’s pretty much just the standard British school uniform! Nothing Hogwarts-specific about it...variants of that are what all public and private schoolkids wear here until their hit latter form years, high school and/or college.

That’s exactly why Potter and all wear this at Hogwarts, since Hogwarts is a British school. I thought there was something i was missing but, nope. I used to have a patch on my own school blazer, and think the motto was "do well and fear not". Just typical schoolkid uniform here (see also the long-running and iconic BBC school series Grange Hill). :)

Here's Anita, played by Kirby Howell-Baptiste:

She's been in all the trailers and spoke in the latest.

Like how the title emerges. Shame no new song.

Clip:



Sublime. The song played in the background is "The Wild One" by Suzi Quatro. Nice. If the trend continues, the soundtrack is going to be a killer!

Wild One is a little non-subtle and too on the nose, and darn it if the fumes from that flammable material she used to pull that trick would have wafted right through her and passed her out...but that’s one heck of a way to make an entrance! ;)

Footage of young Cruella:



You can hear the Cruella tune in the background. Now see, that whole spelling/pronounced bit is a little more on the nose.

Soundtrack is coming out May 21st. You can listen here. Rundown of the playlist:

"Call Me Cruella" - Florence + The Machine
"Bloody Well Right" - Supertramp
"Whisper Whisper" - Bee Gees
"Five to One"- The Doors
"Feeling Good" - Nina Simone
"Whole Lotta Love" - Ike and Tina Turner
"Fire" - Ohio Players
"Stone Cold Crazy" - Queen
"One Way or Another" - Blondie
"Should I Stay or Should I Go" - The Clash
"I Love Paris" - Georgia Gibbs
"Love is Like a Violin" - Ken Dodd
"I Wanna Be Your Dog" - John McCrea
"Come Together" - Ike and Tina Turner

Combined with the earlier trailer songs, this soundtrack slays! Not a bad selection. "Should I Stay or Should I Go", "One Way or Another" and of course "Love is Like a Violin". Beautiful. Has such a lovely dreamlike charm to it. "Call Me Cruella" is an original song which you can get a taste of in this teaser:



Sounds catchy already!

I confess I did have to look twice to confirm it was Emma Thompson, and not the late Diana Rigg.
