The wait is nearly over! Since it was announced that Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, James Corden and a crazy long list of other fur-miliar faces were going to be in Cats the movie, we’ve been clamouring for a look.
How realistic will these cats be? Is Idris Elba a good singer? When can we buy tickets? We have so many questions!
Ahead of the trailer release on Friday, the powers that be have shared a first glimpse inside the film with a video that goes behind-the-scenes with the star-studded cast including Swift, Elba, Corden, Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, Rebel Wilson, Judi Dench and Sir Ian McKellen. If you want a peek at the giant furniture on set, a glance into the intense dance rehearsals featuring Les Twins and Francesca Hayward or just want to see some precious footage of Dench and McKellen laughing together, this teaser is absolute gold.
Many fans are excited to see notorious cat lover and cat mother of three Taylor Swift in her first big acting role. She started filming her parts as Bombalurina right after wrapping up her Reputation tour last year. “This musical is timeless and we got to update it in ways that I think are so, so, so great,” she explained in the video. “I’m just really excited and so honored to get to be a part of this.”
We think this movie looks pur-ty paw-some so far, and can’t wait to see the trailer on Friday!
