“It was a lot. So peeing was difficult and involved a team of people.

“The underwear was a big deal. Not for the Stone, obviously, because she’s thin as a lily and doesn’t need to wear a corset like a whalebone aria.

The film is a prequel to Disney’s 101 Dalmatians and follows a young Estella de Vil, an aspiring fashion designer in 1970s London.
