July 19th, 2019 | by vBollywood Author

The first trailer of Hollywood’s upcoming live-action remake of the musical Cats dropped recently. The promo was unveiled during the ongoing San Diego Comic Con.

While the trailer has witnessed mixed reactions from fans of the original, the film in itself looks creatively shot and choreographed. The movie revolves around the story of a tribe of cats called Jellicles, who, one fateful night, have to deal with circumstances which would change their present and future forever.

The film boasts of a big star cast including A listers like Judi Dench, James Corden, Jennifer Hudson, Rebel Wilson and Idris Elba. American singing sensation Taylor Swift is also going to be making her big Hollywood debut with the Tom Hooper directorial.

Tom Hooper is best known for helming the Oscar-winning The King’s Speech. This film is Hooper’s second musical after the resounding success of the multi-starrer Les Miserables.

Cats is based on the musical of the same name, which in turn was inspired by poet TS Eliot’s work Old Posumm’s Book of Practical Cats. The upcoming film has been executive produced by Steven Spielberg.

Cats is all set for a December 20 release.
