December 20 marks the date the star-studded film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Weber‘s Broadway classic ‘Cats’ pounces into a theater near you.
Starring Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, James Corden, Rebel Wilson, and many more familiar names, fans of any of the aforementioned can expect to see much of them in the coming months hitting the promo trail in support of the Tom Hooper-directed flick.
The latest in a string of visuals to that point comes in the form of a behind the scenes teaser released Monday (September 9). Highlighting the fancy feline footwork of the film’s stars, the clip shows the work that went into conditioning the actors for their portrayals of cats.
“If you told me I was going to get to be a cat, for work? What?” Swift gushed of her role of Bombalurina.
Castmate Corden echoed the sentiment:
“You’re gonna take a load of people, and they’re going to pretend to be cats,” he says in the new teaser. “Like, if you just say it out loud, it’s bonkers. But that’s where the most fun happens, really.”
