Acclaimed filmmaker Tom Hooper (Les Misérables, The King’s Speech) and Universal Pictures have released the trailer for the upcoming Cats film. Based on the musical of the same name, which takes its material from T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the forthcoming film sees Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, and Judi Dench becoming anthropomorphic cats.

Occurring over the course of a single night, the story follows “a tribe of cats called the Jellicles make what is known as ‘the Jellicle choice’ and decide which cat will ascend to Heaviside Layer,” otherwise known as cat heaven. The honor of going to cat heaven is one that all cat’s gloriously hope for, with all of them eagerly attempting to be chosen for the ceremony.

As is showcased within the film’s first trailer, Cats harbors much of the musical’s strong suits, from various dancing to singing and more, even staying true to the look of the various characters as they are presented on-stage.

You can watch the trailer for Cats above. The film hits theaters later this year on December 20.
