The Brief: The iconic Broadway musical Cats has been adapted for the big screen and its first trailer has already triggered a massive meme storm.
The trailer has arrived for Tom Hooper’s film adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Cats, which is set to be released this Christmas. The memes have arrived as well.
See For Yourself…
The Cats trailer is…difficult to describe. Instead of trying to explain how the anthropomorphic cats played by big-name celebrities including Idris Elba, Ian McClellan, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Jason Derulo, and more will make you feel, it’s best that you just watch the trailer yourself.
Twitter users came-through when it came to showcasing their hilarious and relatable reactions to the Cats trailer.

The seriousness of the Cats Look Inside video. The underscoring. The sound bites about the meaning of performance. Idris Elba saying “for the cat perspective —“. I am blown away. My dreams are coming true

Cats Trailer Memes
Even for the most die-hard Cats fans, it’s hard to pass up on making fun of the furry-like appearance of the cat-humanoids, the shock of seeing Taylor Swift as a cat, and so much more. Whether the trailer gave you the creeps, made you LOL, or both, you’ll most likely enjoy these #CatsMovie memes…
One of many comparisons to Sonic The Hedgehog:

Are The Cats in cahoots with FaceApp?
Do not watch the CATS the movie trailer! It is created by Russians who are stealing people’s faces and putting them on cats!!

Although the cats have human-like bodies, they are depicted approximately the same size as actual cats…
