“Cats,” the Movie, Coming in 2019…

Dancing feline animorphs are coming to the big screen in 2019… you have now been duly warned!  The movie version of the musical will boast some diverse and major stars as cats, including Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, and Ian McKellen…that’s right, Magneto is gonna play a cat, although appropriately enough a theatrical one.  What would be really cool would be if he’d play a cat with mutant powers.  Perhaps Catwoman from the DC universe could also make an appearance, and we’d really have a blockbuster!

But I digress…the British-American cooperative venture, several years in the planning, is set to come to theaters in later December 2019…

    “Magnetically! Magnetically! He’ll play a feline most frenetically.
    And, for his performance, we’ll be cheerin’ and a-yellin!
    This versatile gent by the name o’ Ian McKellen.”

    With both thanks and apologies to T.S. Eliot, wherever he is.

      Why, the muse has touched you! Andrew Lloyd Webber has supposedly written a new song for the movie, but I think they should incorporate yours instead… giving you full royalties, of course! ; )

        Thus far, it’s not exactly been a spectacular success at the box office. Not even in my hometown multiplex!

          By most accounts, “Cats” is a commercial failure. People were largely creeped out by seeing largely human faces and hands almost photoshopped onto feline bodies. The fact that “Cats” has a minimal and confusing storyline didn’t help with a general audience, either. It should have remained a stage experience where a dedicated audience accepted seeing actors and actresses in wonderful costumes. “Cats” didn’t translate well to a movie format…

            True! A similar case in point? A syndicated videotape of the now-classic Broadway version of “Sweeney Todd” (then-starring Len Carious and Angela Lansbury) was much more popular with TV viewers than the feature-film abomination that starred Jonny Depp.
