Cats Sneak Peek Goes Behind-the-Scenes of the Feisty Feline Musical
Get ready with a new take on the director Tom Hooper . . This adaptation of the legendary Broadway musical has attracted a lot of attention since the release of the first trailer in July. And rightly so. Some of the best actors and performers in the world are transformed into cats through revolutionary digital effects. It's as crazy as it sounds and, as we see in this featurette, everyone takes it very seriously.
This video comes with a lot less 'digital fur technology' because it's rather about watching behind the scenes to see how all this will unfold. We see Taylor Swift, Elba Idris, James Corden and others discuss very seriously the process of giving life to Cats . The choreography, without the content of the CGI chat, is impressive, that's for sure. Just like John Hammond with Jurassic Park they spared no effort to make it a show. Swift, in particular, seems rather happy to add "chat" to her resume, as she rather enthusiastically says in the video.
"If you ever told me that I was going to become a cat for work, what ?!"
Main cast include James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift and Rebel Wilson, along with Francesca Hayward, principal dancer of the Royal Ballet's feature debut. Robbie Fairchild ( An American in Paris ), Laurie Davidson ( Will ), hip hop dancers Les Twins, aka Larry and Laurent Bourgeois, dancers Mette Towley, Royal Ballet principal dancers, Steven McRae and singer Bluey Robinson complete the set.
About: The distribution of cats will be made as a cat in Feline Movie Musical
The studio has not yet unveiled its story synopsis it is promised that this "reinvents the musical for a new generation". The music of Broadway is centered on a tribe of Jellicle Cats who must make the "choice of Jellicle" to decide which of them will move towards the mysterious layer of Heaviside to be reborn . The long-time and acclaimed musical of Andrew Lloyd Webber is based on a collection of poems by TS Eliot, The Practical Book of the Ancient Possum of Cats ]. Since its inception in 1981, the musical has been performed nearly 9,000 times. He won seven Tony Awards in 1983 and the prestigious Laurence Olivier Award twice, in 1982 and again in 2015.
Tom Hooper, the filmmaker behind The King's Speech The Danish Girl and Les Misérables has an award-winning pedigree. Without a doubt, the studio hopes that some of this magic will also disengage this project. Hooper co-wrote the screenplay alongside Lee Hall ( by Bill Elliot of War Horse ). Cats is scheduled to arrive in theaters on December 20, where he will ride directly against Star Wars: The Skywalker Uprising which is one of the cinematic confrontations most interesting of the year.
