But while the 1984 anime classic helped establish the world-renowned animation studio, no one has dared to touch Miyazaki’s creation — until now.

Cats movie release date

The Cats movie has coughed-up a release date that will put it directly up against Star Wars: Episode 9. There was a time when other studios would flee from a Star Wars release date like a feline during a thunderstorm. But perhaps Universal is feeling frisky after the Solo underperformance.
