Taylor Swift and Idris Elba make for two purr-fect dance partners in a new behind-the-scenes video from the making of the upcoming movie adaptation of Cats. The three-and-a-half-minute clip shows Swift, Elba, Rebel Wilson, Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, James Corden, and Judi Dench all recounting their earliest performance memories as they rehearse the film's cat-tastic song and dance numbers. "My favorite thing was getting to be theatrical, to tell a story," Swift says. "And I've always brought that sort of narrative element to my live shows." The video also offers brief shots of Swift and Elba dancing alone and with each other. Playbill notes that the behind-the-scenes footage precedes the arrival of Cats' first official trailer this Friday, July 19. Cats debuts in theaters on December 20.
