The highly anticipated first look at the “Cats” movie is finally here.
Originally scheduled to drop on Friday, the new trailer for Tom Hooper’s film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit Broadway musical gives a glimpse of Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Idris Elba and the rest of the cast of “Cats” singing and dancing.
Instead of using makeup to transform the cast into their four-legged counterparts, Hooper tried out cutting-edge performance-capture technology.
In the new clip, Hudson’s rendition of “Memory” serves as a backdrop as fans get a peek into the London street cats getting ready for the Jellicle Ball.
The film also stars Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Ian McKellen, Rebel Wilson and newcomer Francesca Hayward.
“Cats” hits big screens on Dec. 20.
