‘Blast from the past’: Rebel Wilson reveals Aussie ties to the movie Cats

Hollywood star Rebel Wilson has not forgotten her Australian roots, revealing the north-western Sydney suburb that has had an influence in the making of Cats, the movie.

The 2019 cinematic remake of the musical Cats will hit Aussie screens around Christmas time, with an all-star cast including Rebel Wilson and the likes of Taylor Swift, Jason Derulo and Idris Elba.

But Rebel has revealed there’s another Aussie that’s working behind the scenes to put the movie together.

She tells Ben Fordham Castle Hill Primary School has produced a lot of successful people.

“The guy I went to primary school with, shoutout to Castle Hill Primary School, is the head of visual effects and they’re doing a lot of it from Australia.

“Also in our class, we had a billionaire, now who’s sold a tech company in Silicon Valley, so we must have had a lot of good teachers.”
