101 Dalmatians

101 Dalmatians is a 1996 American family comedy film written and produced by John Hughes, and directed by Stephen Herek. It was produced and released by Walt Disney Pictures, and was a live-action remake of the animated 1961 Disney film of the same name, which in turn was based on Dodie Smith's 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians. The film stars Glenn Close as the iconic villainess Cruella de Vil, and Jeff Daniels as Roger, the owner of the 101 dalmatians. Unlike the 1961 animated version, Pongo, Perdita, and the 99 Puppies are all played by real-life dalmatian actors and none of them talk. Its theatrical sequel, 102 Dalmatians, was released in 2000, with Close and McInnerny reprising their roles.
