A new trailer for the Cats movie is here and it’s actually kind of cute.  From what I gather, forgive me, I’ve never seen the play…there’s a contest to see which cat deserves a better life. And Idris Elba‘s Macavity wants to be that the chosen one.

Dame Judi Dench plays Old Deuteronomy. On the night of the Jellicle Ball, Deuteronomy chooses one to cross over.  Royal Ballet principal dancer Francesca Hayward in her debut film as Victoria, the White Cat.  A part that features more ballet style dancing and not a lot of talking.  Victoria is very visible in the trailer, appearing to be a newcomer to Old Deuteronomy’s world of the Jellicle. 

Cats also stars James Corden, Jason Derulo, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, and Rebel Wilson.The film is based on the Broadway musical scored by Andrew Lloyd Weber.  According to the musical’s website,  the musical, tells the story of one magical night when an extraordinary tribe of cats gathers for its annual ball to rejoice and decide which cat will be reborn.”    The musical on seven Tony Awards during it’s first run on Broadway in 1983. Since then the show has hit the road, touring across the United States. 

The first trailer was a little creepy.  This second one, still creepy because of the CGI.  It should be very entertaining and a bit more lively considering the cast.  Anyway, Check out the trailer below.

Cats shimmies it’s way into theaters on December 20, 2019.
