Cats: Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Judi Dench inspire Piling On across the Twitter-verse




About a month ahead of its release this December, Universal dropped a new trailer for its anthropomorphic “Cats” spectacle and social media users have responded in new and amusing variations. The newest trailer comes after the original trailer was released four months ago in July.

Universal’s “Cats” is a musical fantasy film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical of the same name, which was based on T.S. Eliot’s poetry collection from 1939 “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.”

The director of the notorious 2012 “Les Misérables” musical film adaptation Tom Hooper is directing the film with a screenplay co-written by him and British playwright and screenwriter Lee Hall, who wrote the screenplay for the 2005 film adaptation of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice.”

Original Official Trailer for “Cats”

The main subject of the public internet’s fixation and fascination with “Cats” is witnessing the strange-looking, computer-animated cat versions of its star-studded cast, which includes Taylor Swift, James Corden, Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, Rebel Wilson, Ian McKellan, Judi Dench, and Idris Elba.

Hundreds of tweets surged following the new trailer, with cat jokes and memes, many a meme surrounding how freaky it is to see a human playing a cat and how equally terrifying it is to see their furry “naked” cat characters played by well known celebrities. 

Here’s a snippet of some of the new memes that spawned from the new trailer ahead of its upcoming release during this Christmas season:
U gotta look close at this one to see the funny part
Is that the guy from saturday night live?
no words can describe this
now it all makes sense
