What Is 'Cats' About? Movie Trailer Finally Explains Plot to Confused Broadway Fans

One thing that most Broadway fans agree on is that the plot of the musical Cats is super confusing and people aren’t even sure what the show is about.

When it was announced that the musical would be made into a movie, the news was met with lots of groans. But now the latest trailer for the film has done something that previous marketing materials never did… it explained the plot!

Judi Dench‘s Old Deuteronomy does a voiceover in the new trailer and she basically reveals what is going on in the film: “Tonight is a magical night where I choose the cat that deserves a new life… I judge a cat by its soul.”

“The most deserving cat will be reborn into another life so they can be who they’ve always dreamed of being,” Robbie Fairchild‘s Munkustrap then says.

Here’s the synopsis provided by Universal: “Over the course of a single night, a tribe of cats called the Jellicles 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.”
