Where are all the kitty cats at? Because the trailer for Cats has just been released and we know you’re gonna want all the details.
Opening with a Jennifer Hudson solo, the trailer gives us a glimpse into the world of the felines, seeing everything from their perspective. Although not much of the plot line is showed, we see all the actors prancing around in the nighttime and looking their best in fluffy fur. Highlights include Taylor Swift looking like her pet cats, along with James Corden and Rebel Wilson bringing their typical scene-stealing humour.
The film will be a remake of the epic Broadway musical and it won’t be one to miss. Cats follows a tribe of cats (duh) called the Jellicles who “must decide yearly which one will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new Jellicle life.”
The film’s star-studded cast will include Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, Jason Derulo, James Corden, Idris Elba, Ian McKellen, and Judi Dench, along with many others actors and professional dancers such as Les Twins and London-based ballerina Francesca Hayward. With an ensemble like this, we have no doubt the film will be one to look forward to.
Just a few days ago, a behind-the-scenes video was released which gave us an inside look on the cast and filming. Some exciting things we learned? The sets look amazing, the dances look amazing, and the director, Tom Hooper, will be editing CGI fur on the cast as oppose to wearing fur costumes. Special effects have definitely advanced since the last film 21 years ago.
The musical film is set to be released on December 20, 2019, so only five more months to go until we can all bask in the glory of the kitties.
