Billboard Magazine reports:
Universal has sunk its claws into a release date for Cats. The movie version of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical will hit Dec. 20, 2019, opening on a date that was previously occupied by another movie musical, Wicked.
The studio says that the Wizard of Oz re-telling will be re-dated soon.
Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden and Ian McKellen are set to star in Cats, which will be directed by Les Misérables movie helmer Tom Hooper. Production is set to take place later this year in the U.K.
