Are you ready to see Judi Dench as a cat wearing a gangster-sized fur coat?

The new “Cats” trailer released Tuesday delivers such epic Dench moments, more Taylor Swift shimmying as Bombalurina and plenty of new jokes, thanks to the internet.

“Tonight is a magical night where I choose the cat that deserves a new life,” Dench’s Old Deuteronomy ominously intones.

“Judi Dench giving us @JLo in Hustlers,” tweeted Marc Malkin of The Hollywood Reporter, sharing an image of Dench in a full fur (on fur) coat.

After scathing reactions to the first trailer in July, Twitter had a furry field day with Tuesday’s reveal, which showed off more dancing but notably less singing. Jason Derulo’s Rum Tum Tugger shouts for “Miiilk!” and Idris Elba’s Macavity pops up more frequently, warning of danger and disappearing in a glittery burst. Audiences got a peek at the finished digital effects on the film’s much-touted virtual fur, which has been tweaked since the original trailer.  

“The second #CatsMovie trailer confirms what the first one had clearly established: there is *no way* I’m turning up to a screening of this sober. I’m ready,” joked film critic Tomis Laffly.

“When I said I wanted to see Idris Elba naked, this is not what I meant,” wrote Awards Daily contributor Joey Moser, sharing a screen capture of the actor (draped on a cat statue) in his fur-coated skivvies. 

Not all the comments were negative.

“I CAN’T WAIT TO WATCH TAYLOR ON @CATSMOVIE!! SHE LOOKS SO GORGEOUS,” tweeted @AlvinSwifty.

“Lots of critics have decided that #CatsMovie looks bad. It looks like nothing I’ve seen before, which is exactly why I want to see it,” tweeted @markcousinsfilm.

“I am going to be real here and say #CatsMovie genuinely looks really really good with the cinematography and music and cast and everything. It has potential to be smth. amazing but also what the (expletive) is with the hideous cgi compared to the 80s costumes,” wrote @simonsweetsays.

Directed by Tom Hooper (“Les Miserables,” “The King’s Speech”), the musical film includes Jennifer Hudson as Grizabella, Ian McKellen as Gus the Theater Cat and James Corden as Bustopher Jones.

“Cats” hits theaters Dec. 20.
