'Cats' Behind-the-Scenes Video Reveals Taylor Swift, Idris Elba Dancing

Universal

The story's based on Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot and the musical Cats by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

The film hits Irish cinemas on December 20.

Taylor also spoke about her first memories of performance - and she immediately thought of Pennsylvania, where she grew up before moving to Nashville, Tennessee.

According to the clip, director Tom Hooper is using technology to create a digital fur covering on his actors. "The scale of this film is huge, three or four times bigger for the cats perspective".

As the audience is brought in to see snippets of rehearsals and hear insights from the cast and Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper, it's clear that the film adaptation is meant to transform Andrew Lloyd Webber's record-shattering stage musical into an updated cinematic event for a whole new generation. "It's a kind of Alice In Wonderland experience". Swift takes part in group numbers and is also seen dancing with Elba, who plays villain cat Macavity. We'll have to wait a few days to see that footage. Swift plays Bombalurina, one of the principal cat characters.

The Shake It Off hitmaker added: "This musical is timeless and we've got to update it in ways that are just so, so great".

"She's unimaginable. She's such a stunning woman and I personally assume her cat is the sexiest out of all cats", Wilson mentioned. "I came right off of a stadium tour and came right into rehearsals". Another film adaptation of a beloved musical, Hooper's Les Misérables was both a money-maker and a crowd-pleaser - earning $441.8 million worldwide against a $61 million budget and satisfied general viewers even more than it did critics.

With the official trailer dropping Friday, the Cats film Twitter account shocked followers with a brand new video teasing all of the work that went into manufacturing.
