Fans of the huge host of stars that make up the movie’s cast; James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, and Rebel Wilson to name but a few, were expecting an exciting appetiser for a gorgeously creative musical extravaganza. 

However, many social media users found themselves met with what one Twitter user described as “all kinds of horrendous”.

We’ve collected some of the more hilariously shocked reactions for your Friday afternoon amusement.

Gavin And Stacey star Corden takes on the iconic role of Bustopher Jones and has said of the TS Eliot-inspired film “The most exciting thing about this film production of Cats is we are using the oldest and most traditional techniques … with groundbreaking technology and pairing those together”

The people of the internet aren’t entirely convinced.

UNCALLED FOR: “My question is why? No one asked for this” wrote one fan of the musical (Pic: Twitter)

As one of the West End’s longest-running musicals, accumulating 8949 performances in its 21-year run, which ended in 2002, the show has enough fans to warrant two West End revivals. 

Cats fans were expecting a film that’s as compelling as the stage show.

The film will be released in December and despire the deeply traumatic trailer many fans are still looking forward to see the film’s all-star cast as the furry feline street gang of cats known as ‘the Jellicles’.
