First things first, who will star in Cats?

WOW, it's an all-star cast. Names include Taylor Swift and Idris ElbaJennifer Hudson, Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellanJames Corden, Rebel Wilson, and last but by no means least, Jason Derulo, who are all embracing their inner feline.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Taylor Swift have written an original song.

We already know the release date.

Production of the film adaptation started in February 2018 at Warner Bros Studios, Leavesden, England. The film, which is being directed by Les Misérables director Tom Hooper, with heavy involvement from ALW (that's Andrew Lloyd Webber BTW) himself, is set for release on December 20, 2019 in the US and UK.

Which means...you can expect a lot of Memory renditions at your office Christmas party this year. Although we imagine no one will match Jennifer, who in her role as Grizabella the Glamour Cat, will be belting out the epic tune. A song that has also been covered by Elaine Page, Barbra Streisand, and Nicole Sherzinger.
