This year’s epic movie comes along with an exceptional line of actors and actresses. The cast list includes many of our favorites from Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, Jason Derulo, James Corden, Ian McKellen, Judi Dench, just to name a few.
If you think you just got the Cats theme song out of your head, get ready to start humming to the entire Cats soundtrack. “Cats” is one of Broadway’s top long-running musicals and is being made presently into a live-action film. The same director that bought us Les Misérables, Tom Hooper, is bringing to a cinema near you, the movie “Cats.”
July 2018, we discovered that Tom Hooper had cast Taylor Swift as one of the main characters in his newest project. She will have the role of the sassy queen cat called Bombalurina and Jennifer Hudson as Grizabella and Judi Dench is the Old Deuteronomy.
The movie’s very first trailer was released on Friday, July 19, 2019 that gave as peak it into the behind-the-scenes interactions between the whole cast of actors and actresses.
Giving a look into who is playing all of the key players in the movie and their thoughts on the film.
Social media exploded after the official movie trailer was released, some were making fun of the movie. But the majority were left wishing they lived in a magical world where humans were cats.
We have to admit that the cast is incredible and it gave us some of the best star power in Hollywood. Even Tom Hopper stated that he wasn’t directing a group of celebrities but a group of “world-class athletes.” Just seeing Hudson singing her rendition of “Memory” gave us Goosebumps. Some other celebrities on the cast list include James Corden as Bustopher Jones, rebel Wilson is Jennyanydots and Idris Elba is Macavity.
One of the biggest questions we have all been asking ourselves since we heard that Tom Hooper was directing this film was how would he handle the iconic cat customers that made this Broadway musical so famous. In the behind-the-scene trailer video, he stated that they used actual costumes combined with digital technology to create what Tom called “the most perfect covering of fur.”
Corden said that in real life the actors are just people, but when you see them on film, they transform themselves into cats. Believe us when you see the trailer that you will be in awe.
Hooper included on his long list of top actors and actresses, some of the best forces of nature from the dance world. One of the main dancers at the Royal Ballet, Francesca Hayward will play the role of the White Cat. The French dance sensation team, often called the Les Twins, Larry and Laurent Bourgeois will be playing the two cats called Plato and Socrates.
Are you wondering when you can see this film? You won’t have to wait too long, as it will be released just in time for our winter holidays. The producers, Universal Pictures has stated that it will be released on December 20, 2019.
