It's been hotly anticipated for years now, as a killer cast of Hollywood A-listers and acting greats was slowly assembled for the movie adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Cats. But our first glimpse of the animated film didn't quite see the Jellicle Moon shining bright. 

Released in the late hours of Thursday, the trailer gave us a first look at the likes of James Corden, Judi Dench, Taylor Swift, Ian McKellen, Idris Elba, Rebel Wilson, Jason Derulo and Jennifer Hudson in their feline form, as well as a first listen to Hudson performing the song "Memory" throughout". 


Reaction to the trailer was mixed, to say the least.



There was also a strong reaction from the cat community, led by Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office, Larry.


Some were more optimistic about the trailer and hopeful for the film.

Cats is due to be released on 20th December 2019.
