After much anticipation, the second trailer for Cats has landed. Behold Judi Dench, Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Ian McKellen, Rebel Wilson, James Corden, Francesca Hayward, Jennifer Hudson, and Jason Derulo all covered in “digital fur technology” and living their feline fantasies! Naturally, Twitter is freaking out over this trailer, a thing of…what? Glory? Horror? Musical theater magic? That’s up for debate. It’s definitely a THING, from the uncanny valley of its humanoid-cat critters to its jaunty plot and Idris Elba naked! (Sort of.)
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the latest Cats trailer.

Smart dispensaries should offer a CATS movie package of their most hallucinatory edibles along with a pamphlet for later that reads “they aren’t real and they can’t hurt you”— Kate Leth (@kateleth) November 19, 2019
as soon as I saw @catsmovie gave the lady cats breasts, I should have assumed someone would shake them while dancing but I still wasn't prepared for the reality of what that would look like… pic.twitter.com/tT24lyBcAG— Jarett Wieselman (@JarettSays) November 19, 2019

I hope the CATS marketing campaign comes with chocolate Macavity bars because this is making me want to eat Idris Elba. pic.twitter.com/N97eFe5uUc— Hanna Ines Flint (@HannaFlint) November 19, 2019
