A tribe of cats called the Jellicles must decide yearly which one will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new Jellicle life.
By coincidence, Taylor Swift had released the first official merchandise for her two cats, Olivia and Meredith, earlier the same day that her casting in this movie was announced. The two cats also featured in Deadpool 2 (2018), in which the title character wears a t-shirt, with an image of the two of them.
A few calico cats, including Mungojerrie, are male. Although the nature of chromosomes causes most calico cats to be female, it is a little known fact that male calico cats can exist, although they are extremely rare.
The Universal Pictures, Working Title Films and Amblin Entertainment logos are seen at the beginning of the film itself, but never appear in the film's trailers/TV spots.
An "completely finished" version, which improves the VFX, replaces the "Early Preview" version with the use of the Digital Cinema Package (DCP) that with downloaded onto a satellite server after the opening weekend, as demanded by Universal Studios International (UIP). Hard drives copies will be released at indie cinemas on Christmas Eve.
