The story of the musical follows the Jellicle cats, a family of felines. They go before the group’s leader Old Deuteronomy to see who will be selected to travel to the Heaviside layer for a new life. The original musical won six Tony awards. But the trailer opened to criticism from the viewers. They were left confused and dazed with the adaptation of Broadway play.
Cats is directed by Tom Hooper and also features Idris Elba, Ian McKellan, Rebel Wilson, James Corden, Jason Derulo and Steven McRae.
Produced by Working Title Films in alliance with Monumental Pictures and the Really Useful Group. The film is set to hit theatres Dec. 20.
