Wonderfully witty, charming and exceptionally talented, from the moment we laid eyes on #EmmaStone in her first major comedy roles in Superbad and Easy A, we knew this little lady would be destined for great things.

Years on, and the actress is one of the most sought after performers in the industry, slaying at every opportunity in a myriad of roles such as in The Help, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Aloha. Oh, and let's not forget about that time she almost scooped up an Oscar win for her outstanding performance in #Birdman.

Indeed, much is in store for Emma Stone's career and her next few movies over the coming years make this very clear. Take a look:

1. La La Land

Release: December 16, 2016

Role: Mia

Finally, the gods have looked down favorably on us and generously provided us with another movie starring the perfect pairing: Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. The last time we saw these two grace the big screen together was in 2013 movie Gangster Squad and now, they will return to sprinkle their magic on another romance.

Emma Stone's next movie, #LaLaLand, follows the story of a young jazz pianist who falls for a budding actress in Los Angeles. Acting legend J.K. Simmons also stars, hopefully in his current, insanely ripped state. Here's the trailer:

2. Battle of the Sexes

Release: TBC in 2017

Role: Billie Jean King

Turning to sports, Emma Stone will also be swinging tennis rackets like a pro in #BattleOfTheSexes. The movie hits the big screen sometime in 2017 and brings to life the true story of the 1973 tennis match between World No. 1 Billie Jean King and ex-champion Bobby Riggs, played by Steve Carell. Whether or not the actor will be sporting his transformative prosthetics, has he did in Foxcatcher, is still unknown.

Yet, as filmmakers Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris will be directing from a script by the screenwriter behind Little Miss Sunshine, you know it's going to be pretty awesome. I can't wait!

3. The Croods 2

Release: January 5, 2018

Role: Eep (voice)

Moving away from appearing in front of the camera, Emma Stone will also be delving into some hefty voice acting behind-the-scenes in one of her next movies. #TheCroods2 is an adventure animation created by DreamWorks and brings to life a prehistoric family living in a strange, new world.

The rest of the cast is just as exciting, also including Hollywood megastars Nicolas Cage (as Grug) and Ryan Reynolds (as Guy).

4. The Favorite

Release: TBC in 2018

Role: Abigail Masham

The next movie on Emma Stone's agenda will be taking us back in time to the 18th century court of Queen Anne. Amid the patriarchy and "male politics" of the time period, the actress will be joining Peep Show's Olivia Colman and Kate Winslet as one of the three female leads.

Although information regarding #TheFavorite remains scarce, we know that Emma Stone will be working hard to bring volatile events surrounding the Queen's circle of confidants to the audiences attention. The actress's character, Abigail, in particular wins Anne's affections — there are even rumors they had an love affair, so keep a sneaky eye out for that. Either way, considering this is a period of British history that has been seldom covered in film, and that the project is led by the Greek director responsible for the eccentric movie The Lobster, it's bound to be outstanding:

5. Cruella

Role: Cruella de Vil

Emma Stone will also be preparing to skin some innocent little puppies in one of her next movies. Stepping into the role of Cruella in the live-action adaptation of the Disney classic 101 Dalmatians, she will be gearing up to cackle herself silly in a bid to create the perfect coat.

Interestingly though, #Cruella will also be focusing on the villainess's early days, well before she developed a penchant for wearing animal skins. Perhaps this adaptation will even receive the Maleficent treatment and paint the menace in a more sympathetic light?
