A Pre-Fur Look At ‘Cats’

by Therese Powell 22 Jul 2019 12:09 PM

Tellyspotting gives a sneak peek at ‘Cats’ sans the catsuits.


Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper (‘King’s Speech,’ ‘Les Misérables,’ ‘The Danish Girl’) has herded a pretty spectacular feline litter together for the forthcoming film adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, ‘Cats.’ Taylor Swift (Bombalurina), Sir Ian McKellen (Gus the Theatre Cat), James Corden (Bustopher Jones), Jennifer Hudson (Grizabella), Idris Elba (Macavity) and Dame Judi Dench (Old Deuteronomy) have all attended “cat school”, where they learned how to mimic the physical and behavioral traits of their feline counterparts. All that’s missing is the virtual fur which will be added in post.

Tellyspotting takes a look at the show before the fur begins to fly.
