Fuzzy Picture

When the star-studded cinematic remake of the Broadway show “Cats” drops its first trailer on Friday, we’ll get a glimpse at some bizarrely-hyped special effects .

That’s according to Slate, which reports that something called “ fur technology” will transform stars like Swift and Judi Dench into the show’s signature human-feline hybrids.

The special effects team is using an interesting mix of CGI and set design to the stars into hairier versions of themselves, according to behind-the-scenes footage.

In addition to the digital fur technology that will “create the most perfect covering of fur,” designers are creating supersized sets to make the actors seem -sized rather than shrinking them down in post-production. Though no one not involved with the production has seen it yet, the effects seem to have wowed the cast.

“These are , but they’re cats, and this is kind of blowing my mind,” said James Corden.
