The ‘Cats’ Musical Film Adaptation Stars Idris Elba

Published

on

Cats is one of the most well-known musicals of all time. Even if you haven’t seen it, you’ve no doubt heard someone or some TV show sing the famous, “Memories, all alone in the moonlight…” Now, the film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s classic show is garnering more excitement than ever by adding Idris Elba to its already star-studded cast.

The New “It” Brit

Idris Elba’s star has certainly risen to meteoric heights over the past few years. While he’s long been a fan favorite in his native U.K., you may have first seen him breach American television with his role as Charles Miner in the U.S. version of The Office.

In the last five years, he seems to pop up in everything, from the Thor franchise to Disney’s live-action Jungle Book. He was even universally supported by fans as the new pick for James Bond! Unfortunately, he’s already dashed our dreams of that coming true.

Elba Joins the Growing Litter of Jellicles

In case that subhead is confusing, “jellicles” is just the breed of the melodic mammals in Cats. And the list of those signing up to play the fancy felines is having fans everywhere burst into song themselves!

If Elba wasn’t incentive enough to watch the new film, he’s joining talent like Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, and fellow-Brit Ian Mckellan. Oh, and the proud, self-proclaimed cat lady herself: Taylor Swift!

What You Need to Know

It’s kind of unfair that media outlets are getting us all worked up this early. After all, production hasn’t even begun yet and the tentative premiere date isn’t until December 20, 2019. Such a bummer!

However, there is a huge cast list to fill, and we’re not even sure yet who’s playing who. So, even though it’s paws-itively painful to have to wait for this thrilling rendition of the legendary musical, it’s going to be exciting to see what other details surface over the next year.
