101 Dalmatians (1996 movie)

1996 Walt Disney Pictures film directed by Stephen Herek

101 Dalmatians is a movie made by The Walt Disney Company in 1996. It is a remake of the 1961 animated film One Hundred and One Dalmatians (which was based on Dodie Smith's 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians). The movie's main actor is Glenn Close as Cruella de Vil. Unlike in the earlier versions of the story, the dalmatians are played by real dalmatian actors, and none of the dalmatians talk. A sequel, 102 Dalmatians, was made in 2000 and was released in November. This movie is called simply 101 in Japan, like its sequel, which is called 102.
