Midday Thursday, the first trailer for the movie remake of the beloved Broadway musical ‘Cats’ was released, and the internet was flooded with memes and tweets about the trailer shortly after.
The movie includes a star-studded cast including Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, Idris Elba, James Corden, Jason Derulo, and Ian McKellen—all of whom will be seen in CGI costumes on the internet are calling Snapchat filter inspired.
Cats is set to premiere in theaters Dec. 20th, just in time for Christmas, which I’m sure will give us the gift of even more memes about the movie. Until then check out the trailer and then look at the flood of glorious responses from Twitter, below.
