102 Dalmatians is a 2000 live-action film, released by Walt Disney Pictures and starring Glenn Close as Cruella De Vil. It is the sequel to 101 Dalmatians, live action remake of the 1961 Disney animated feature One Hundred and One Dalmatians. In it, Cruella attempts to steal puppies for her "grandest" fur coat. Glenn Close and Tim McInnerny were the only actors from the first film to return for it. It was released on VHS and DVD on April 3, 2001, and re-released on DVD on September 16, 2008.


After three years in prison, Cruella De Vil is cured from her lust for fur coats. Dr. Pavlov proceeded this through an experiment that turns a predator and a prey into best friends. Cruella is released on a parole that states she has to pay eight million pounds to all dogs' homes of Westminster if she vows to never go back to dognapping. She changes her name from Cruella to "Ella", and locking away her old fur coats and a drawing of her in a Dalmatian puppy coat. She later meets up with Chloe Simon.

"Ella" doesn't stay cured for long, however, as she turns back into Cruella the moment she hears the chimes of Big Ben. Just discovering this himself, Dr. Pavlov decides to never tell anyone about the liability. When Cruella sees Chloe's dogs, Dipstick and his puppies, she plans to make an ultimate fur coat with a hood.

Her servant, Alonzo, is sent to find a few puppies and she hires Jean-Pierre Le Pelt to help her in the capture of 102 puppies. They set Kevin Shepherd up, the owner of the animal shelter where Cruella spent community service. His animal shelter was the only one in the borough that allowed Cruella to trick the authorities in thinking that Kevin kidnapped the puppies to frame her and collect money. Kevin escapes from prison, however, with the help of Waddlesworth and he meets up with Chloe. They learn that Cruella is headed to Paris and they decide to follow her. However, they are soon imprisoned by Cruella in LePelt's fur coat factory.

Because of Oddball being born without any spots, Cruella forgets about her, and the puppy is able to rescue her family and the other dog-napped puppies. Alonzo decides that he doesn't want to work with Cruella anymore and stands up to Le Pelt, defeating him when he falls through the floor. He becomes a good guy and also helps Chloe and Kevin escape.

The puppies are escorted to a bakery, Cruella gives chase, but accidentally activated the bakery's machinery while dangling from the master control board wire. She falls down onto the processing line from a conveyor belt and the puppies use the machinery against her.

Cruella gets beaten and tormented by the machinery used by the puppies which ends up turning her into a cake. Cruella receives her first wave of humiliation in the form of getting slimy eggs dumped onto her, leaving her slimy and drenched. Then, she gets dumped into a mixing bowl filled with milk, and has several bags of flour dropped onto her. Shortly afterwards, a mixer comes down and mixes Cruella with the contents in the bowl, causing her to become covered in the resulting cake batter. Once the mixer comes up, Cruella gets dumped out of the bowl, covered in cake batter. Already humiliated form being covered in cake batter, Cruella gets rolled on by a rolling pin before she falls into a baking pan which then brings her into a massive oven.

After coming out of the oven baked, Cruella becomes a massive wedding cake after getting drenched with icing, sprinkled and drooled on before finally being topped with a bride and groom figurine. Cruella and Le Pelt are arrested by French police, and Oddball saves the day.

The real happy ending is when the dog shelter gets Cruella's money and when Oddball gets her first spots, letting everyone celebrate.


Video Game

There was a video game released called 102 Dalmatians: Puppies to the Rescue in 2000. Oddball and Domino are the main protagonist with the voices of Frankie Muniz and Molly Marlette.


  • When the Orient Express is leaving, it is pulled by the famous LNER Class A3 4472 (a.k.a. The Flying Scotsman), then when in France, it is pulled by the BR Standard Class 5 73082 (a.k.a. The Camelot).
  • It is odd how none of the baggage helpers checked what was inside Dipstick, Dottie, Domino, and Little Dipper's box. Also, it is odd how nobody recognized Cruella.
  • Originally, the film was supposed to be called 101 Dalmatians Return.
  • Since Dalmatian puppies grow so fast, each pup only got to "act" for two weeks before being replaced by a younger pup.
  • The film featured 55 "spot removal artists." In order to make the Dalmatian "Oddball" completely without spots, the production team tried putting make-up on the dogs, painting off the spots, putting plain white suits on the dogs, and finding another breed of dog. However, none of these techniques worked, so the spots eventually had to be digitally removed (erased in each shot).
  • The "Oddball" that rolls around on the copy machine was adopted by one of the trainers and named "Lala."
  • When Chole and Kevin go out on their date, the Dalmatians can be seen watching Lady and the Tramp on TV.
  • As in 101 Dalmatians, when Cruella is foiled by the Dalmatian puppies, she is wearing a red and black fur coat.
  • This film was where Alice Evans and Ioan Gruffudd first met and fell in love during production, later married on September 14, 2007.
  • This is the last live-action adaptation to a Walt Disney Feature Animation film, until Alice in Wonderland in 2010, which it's box office success encouraged Disney to go back to this idea.
  • Walt Disney Pictures completely produced this sequel on its own, while the first movie was produced by Great Oaks, which was dissolved after the release of Flubber.
  • The first sequel to a live-action Disney remake.
