Here's how much you should expect to see Taylor Swift in Cats
Unfortunately, you’d be mistaken (sorry Swifties!), but what she lacks in major screentime, she does make up for in screen presence.
As Bombalurina, her time to shine comes by way of the musical number “Macavity: The Mystery Cat,” a sultry jazzy spectacle of song and dance in which she tells her fellow cats about the dastardly Macavity (Idris Elba). Afterwards, she gets whisked away by him, but is strangely not seen again after that, possibly suggesting that an extra scene of hers got cut, but it’s ultimately unclear.
In addition to her big musical number, Swift’s presence can be felt in “Beautiful Ghosts,” a song that has nothing to do with her character, but which comes at a pivotal moment in the film. The singer-songwriter wrote the new song for the film with Cats composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, and although she doesn’t personally sing it in the movie (it is performed by Francesca Hayward, who plays Victoria), Swift’s version of the song does play over the end credits.
Cats is now playing in theaters.
