Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you have likely heard of the long-running Broadway smash, Cats. It’s now coming to a theater near you with a star studded ensemble cast! The film will star many familiar famous voices. These include Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Rebel Wilson, Idris Elba, Jason Derulo and Taylor Swift as the star cats. Fans of the Broadway show have long-awaited a Cats trailer since it’s been teased. And now it appears they’re in luck.
The film adaptation is directed by Les Misérables director Tom Hooper, and just this week an official trailer for the film was released. Until now, the look of the film and its actors have been extremely hush-hush, and after watching this, it’s easy to see why. Part human, part CGI, and the rest is history.
Check out the official CATS trailer below. You’ve been warned….
For anyone who knows me, and for anyone that happens to read my many articles on this website, I think you could all easily say that I truly love cats…but not this kind. I was legit creeped out, and I’m sorry, but I think I’m not the only one who thinks that given the outcry of confusion hitting the internet right now relating to this trailer. After the first watch, though, I grew to like it more. My initial reaction was just a bit confused!
To me, I think the Broadway version that cat lovers and fans of musical theater have fallen in love with might be better than CGI cats…but you be the judge! My opinion is mine only, and I’m pretty sure my cat-obsessed kids will force me to watch this film anyway! 🙂
