During his interview with Stephen Colbert, Elba attempted to explain the plot of Cats, saying, “I guess it’s about a cat? How am I doing?”

“It’s one cat’s journey towards what is essentially cat heaven,” he explained. “The idea is that we all aspire to get towards cat heaven. There’s this young cat and she gets sort of taken on this story about how to get to cat heaven, or what you should do to get into cat heaven.”
