Taylor Swift is pure catnip in this trailer.

Get those claws out, because the first trailer for "Cats" is here!

The film, described as an "epic musical," features a meow-worthy, jaw-dropping cast filled with stars.

The trailer introduces a star-studded cast -- decked out in digital fur -- with lots of musical song and dance numbers.

By this footage alone, it looks like the special effects are going to be mind-blowing in this film.

Throughout the clip, Jennifer Hudson belts out an absolutely incredible version of the musical's popular song, "Memory." Amidst all of the emotive choreography, the trailer suggests there will be some comedy moments in the film as Rebel Wilson tap dances and Taylor Swift teases her fellow felines with catnip.

"Cats" stars Idris Elba as Macavity, Wilson as Jennyanydots, Ian McKellen as Gus The Theatre Cat and James Corden as Bustopher Jones. Swift plays Bombalurina, Judi Dench as Old Deuteronomy and Hudson stars as Grizabella.

The film also marks the feature film debut from Royal Ballet principal dancer Francesca Hayward, who plays Victoria.

Based on Andrew Lloyd Weber's Tony award-winning musical and "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" by T.S. Eliot, "Cats" is directed by Tom Hooper, written by Lee Hall ("Billy Elliot," "Rocketman") and produced by Debra Hayward, Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Tom Hooper. The film is executive produced by Lloyd Webber, Steven Spielberg, Angela Morrison and Jo Burn.

"Cats" hits theaters December 20, 2019.
