Taylor Swift, Jason Derulo, Jennifer Hudson and a slew of other megastars channel their inner feline for the upcoming film adaptation of Cats. In a new featurette released on Tuesday (Sept. 10), the cast talks about the preparation process.
“If you told me I was going to get to be a cat for work…what?” Swift exclaimed, as scenes flash of her moving her arms in claw-like motions in rehearsals. The clip shows all the actors and dancers working together to create the lifelike catified scenes portrayed in the film.
“Trying to find a balance between learning new steps and new genres,” Derulo, who is used to choreography in his own music, said of the new type of dance he picked up for the film.
“Artistically, we feed off of each other,” Hudson added.
Watch the featurette below. Cats is out Dec. 20.
