Unlike the first trailer, which featured Jennifer Hudson’s rendition of the show-stopper “Memory,” the new trailer, released Tuesday, focuses more on the film’s “plot.” The storyline follows a bunch of cats who compete to be selected to visit a heaven-like realm known as the “Heaviside Layer” and be reborn into a new life.
Here’s the trailer in all its glory, but, we warn you, the celebrity pussyfooting may be an acquired taste.
