Tom Hooper (Les Misérables) directs the big screen take on the Andrew Lloyd Webber's and T. S. Eliot musical, in theatres December 20. Hamilton Tony winner Andy Blankenbuehler choreographs, having previously worked on the 2016 Broadway revival.

New elements await even those familiar with the show, including a narrative structure focused on Victoria as she attends her first Jellicle Ball and a new song for the character: "Beautiful Ghosts," co-written by Lloyd Webber and Swift (the latter sings a cover over the credits).
