The second trailer for Cats gives us a better look at what Hollywood’s biggest stars would look like if they were completely covered in CGI fur.
Furry Taylor Swift shakes out a bottle of catnip. Furry Judi Dench wears a fur coat. Someone really says, “Cat got your tongue?”
Yes, these scenes and more are what you can view in the newest Cats trailer, a film that is somehow a real movie and not just our collective fever dream.
The upcoming movie-musical dropped its second full trailer earlier today, setting the internet abuzz with all new gifs and screenshots. Which means even if this movie provides nothing else, it’s already given us an endless amount of great reaction gifs and memes to use for the rest of the year.
Check out the newest trailer below!
The long-running musical was originally based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. The story centers on a group of cats that gather to sing about themselves and then decide who gets reincarnated. As you can see from the trailer, Dame Judi Dench will be the one deciding who gets reborn and Idris Elba is one of the cats in contention to do so.
The film boasts a pretty damn impressive cast list, with Taylor Swift as Bombalurina, Idris Elba as Macavity, Judi Dench as Old Deuteronomy, James Corden as Bustopher Jones, Rebel Wilson as Jennyanydots, Jason Derulo as Rum Tum Tugger, Ian McKellen as Gus, and Jennifer Hudson as Grizabella — the one responsible for singing the favorite song of all elementary school chorus teachers, “Memory.”The ballet dancer Francesca Hayward plays Victoria the White Cat.
In addition to all the famous songs from the musical, the movie will likewise feature a brand new song, “Beautiful Ghosts,” which is a song Taylor Swift and Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote for the movie.
Cats premieres December 20 this year.
