Andrew Lloyd Webber Says The 'Cats' Movie Was 'Ridiculous'

Andrew Lloyd Webber is telling everyone how he really feels about the movie adaption of Cats.

In a new interview with The Sunday Times, the famed composer and creator of the Broadway musical called it “ridiculous”.

“The problem with the film was that Tom Hooper [director] decided that he didn’t want anybody involved in it who was involved in the original show,” Andrew said. “The whole thing was ridiculous.”

Cats debuted in theaters in December 2019 and starred Judi Dench, Idris Elba, Jason Derulo, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Rebel Wilson and many more.

The film only made 73 million at the box office. The total budget for the film was $100 million to produce, plus an additional $100 million for global marketing and distribution fees.

Taylor also commented about the backlash of the film, and James regrets being part of the film as well.
