This adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical as live-action is helmed by Tom Hooper, the Oscar-winning director of The King’s Speech, did leave the internet dazed and confused.
Cats (1983) is an iconic musical, which was composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and was based on T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. The storyline was about a tribe of felines known at Jellicles, who face a life-altering decision.
Somehow the fans could not appreciate what had happened to their beloved actors for this live-action take. Ever since the trailer was dropped the twitter is flooded with reactions:

I don't know why you're all freaking out over miniature yet huge cats with human celebrity faces and sexy breasts performing a demented dream ballet for kids.

Sincere Q: when the “cats” in the Cats trailer are wearing fur coats, like Judi Dench is, do you think those are meant to be their own fur, or are they wearing the fur of some other animal that they, the cats, have skimmed and fashioned into garments?
