Taylor Swift, James Corden, Idris Elba lead the sparkly first trailer for new musical Cats

A first trailer for the big-screen adaptation of Cats has been released online, click below to watch it:

The film stars Idris Elba, Judi Dench, Taylor Swift, James Corden, Ian McKellen and Jennifer Hudson and has been directed by The King's Speech and Les Miserables man Tom Hooper. 

Lee Hall, who wrote both Billy Elliott and the upcoming Elton John biopic, has adapted Lloyd Webber’s musical, which was itself adapted from a book of children’s poems by T.S. Eliot.

Set over a single night, we follow a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and watch as they make what is known as "the Jellicle choice" and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life.

The musical, which first opened in 1981, ran for over 20 years on London's West End and 18 years on Broadway. 

Cats will be released into UK cinemas on December 20th.
