The 'Cats' Trailer Is Out, And People On Twitter Can't Believe It's Fur Real

Some folks want to erase these images from their "Memory."

The Tom Hooper-directed film takes Andrew Lloyd Webber’s famous musical ― which is itself based on T.S. Eliot’s collection of poems, “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats” ― and plunges it straight into the uncanny valley. It transforms big-name stars like Jennifer Hudson, Judi Dench, Idris Elba and Taylor Swift into bizarre half-human, half-cat creatures who seem extremely small in some scenes and oddly large in others.

Not surprisingly, people on Twitter sharpened their claws for some scathingly hilarious jokes. Here are just a few.

“Cats” will be in theaters Dec. 20.
