PASADENA, Calif. – When you’re a kid and you love musical theater, there really is nothing better than “Cats.” Kristen Bell knows this. 

The “Frozen” actress was speaking to reporters at the Television Critics Association Sunday to promote her new Apple TV+ animated musical series, “Central Park,” and talked about what musicals captured her heart as a kid. 

“Once I saw ‘Cats,’ I was singing it and as a kid, the movement of the show onstage is really cool and so I was walking around like a cat,” she said. “I wanted to get the book (of the musical) and read it, OK? But it was really small print so my mom struggled to find a bigger print because my eyes weren’t great. Are you getting this?” she joked.

Her “Central Park” and “Frozen” co-star Josh Gad had an important follow-up question for Bell. 

“Are you sad you weren’t in the ‘Cats’ movie?” he asked. 

“Yeah, a bit,” she said.

But what did Bell actually think of the very polarizing “Cats” film? She hasn’t seen it … yet. 

“I’m planning on seeing it twice,” she said. “One with my kids because they really want to see it. And one with my adult friends.”

Bell, speaking in a state where recreational marijuana use by adults is legal, then mimed smoking a joint to great laughter. “And those obviously have to be separate viewing experiences. But I plan on doing it twice for sure.”
