I watched the trailer & cried big kitten tears.

A glimpse at the highly-anticipated Cats movie has finally debuted on Thursday, showing Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Rebel Wilson, James Corden, Jason Derulo, Dame Judi Dench, and more stars take on their roles!

How about Judi Dench as a cat?

The cast of the original musical wore fake fur costumes and intricate make up transforming themselves into cats.

The director behind the 2012 Les Misérables film, Tom Hooper has signed up an all-star cast to recreate the iconic production for the big screen. In it, we see Idris Elba as "Macavity" dancing with Taylor Swift as "Bombalurina". The storyline was about a tribe of felines known at Jellicles, who face a life-altering decision.

As one of the West End's longest-running musicals, accumulating 8949 performances in its 21-year run, which ended in 2002, the show has enough fans to warrant two West End revivals.

Earlier this week, the film studio dropped a sneak peek video featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the Tom Hooper-directed film, where Corden attempted to explain the all-new digital fur technology technique. "In the movie, actors look weird and creepy and CGI doesn't do any justice to them".

The reaction to the trailer has been pretty mixed so far! Based on a book of T.S. Eliot poetry-turned-popular-Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, Cats has never made much sense. "These are people, but they're cats and this is kind of blowing my mind".

Cats is slated for a December 20 release. Let us know your views in the comments section below.
