Make Way For the ' Puss In Boots: The Last Wish' Trailer

Shrek may be more than meme than movie these days, but it's easy to forget how massive those movies were. At the time of the release of the first movie, expectations were low but it went on to gross $487,853,320 at the worldwide box office. The sequel was even bigger and went on to gross a massive $928,760,770, which currently makes it the 29th highest-grossing in history, and the 8th biggest film in North America. The sequel also introduced us to the character Puss In Boots, an adorable kitty who has the sword-fighting skills of Zorro and the voice of Antonio Banderas.

Puss was definitely a highlight even as the third and fourth movies saw an overall decline in quality. Due to his popularity, he got his own spin-off in 2011. Just over a decade later, he's finally about to return to the big screen in the long-awaited sequel Puss In Boots: The Last Wish.

And now we have our first look at the new movie in the first teaser trailer. It introduces us to the film's basic concept. It seems that in the Fairy Tale world, the old adage that cats have nine lives is literally true. In The Last Wish, Puss finds that he is down to his last one. But what does he want to do with his last life?

The trailer was a surprise in terms of its actual animation. Although for the most part, it looks consistent with the rest of the franchise (although higher quality, as would be expected with 10 years of technological advances). But it also has more stylised touches, that are closer to the style of DreamWorks Animation's other big movie this year, The Bad Guys, or even has a hint of The Mitchells Vs The Machines or even Spiderverse. Take a look at the different animation style used to animate the giant in this teaser, as well as various on-screen effects and other various touches. It makes it a lot more visually dynamic than you would expect a Puss In Boots sequel to be.

Banderas is back voicing the titular moggy, and Salma Hayek is also returning to voice his feline foil/love interest Kitty Soft Paws. Joining the cast for the new movie is Florence Pugh (As Goldilocks) Ray Winstone, John Mulaney, Harvey Guillén (of the What We Do In The Shadows TV show) Samson KayoWagner Moura and Olivia Colman.

Puss In Boots The Last Wish is directed by Joel Crawford and produced by Mark Swift (both reprising their roles from The Croods: A New Age). Illumination's CEO Chris Meledandri is executive producer.

The film hits US cinemas on September 23.  The UK and Ireland release will follow on 21 October.

This fall, everyone’s favorite leche-loving, swashbuckling, fear-defying feline returns.  

For the first time in more than a decade, DreamWorks Animation presents a new adventure in the Shrek universe as daring outlaw Puss in Boots discovers that his passion for peril and disregard for safety have taken their toll. Puss has burned through eight of his nine lives, though he lost count along the way. Getting those lives back will send Puss in Boots on his grandest quest yet. 

Academy Award® nominee Antonio Banderas returns as the voice of the notorious PiB as he embarks on an epic journey into the Black Forest to find the mythical Wishing Star and restore his lost lives. But with only one life left, Puss will have to humble himself and ask for help from his former partner and nemesis: the captivating Kitty Soft Paws (Oscar® nominee Salma Hayek). 

In their quest, Puss and Kitty will be aided—against their better judgment—by a ratty, chatty, relentlessly cheerful mutt, Perro (Harvey Guillén, What We Do in the Shadows). Together, our trio of heroes will have to stay one step ahead of Goldilocks (Oscar® nominee Florence Pugh, Black Widow) and the Three Bears Crime Family, “Big” Jack Horner (Emmy winner John Mulaney, Big Mouth) and terrifying bounty hunter, The Big Bad Wolf (Wagner Moura, Narcos).


Puss in Boots: The Last Wish features an all-star comedic cast that includes Oscar® winner Olivia Colman, Ray Winstone (Black Widow), Samson Kayo (Sliced), Emmy nominee Anthony Mendez (Jane the Virgin) and Tony nominee Da'Vine Joy Randolph (Trolls World Tour).  


The long-awaited follow-up to the 2011 Academy Award®-nominated blockbuster, The Last Wish is directed by Joel Crawford and produced by Mark Swift, the creative team behind DreamWorks Animation’s smash, The Croods: A New Age. The film’s executive producer is Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri. 


The character of Puss in Boots first appeared in 2004’s Oscar®-nominated Shrek 2 and instantly became a global, scene-stealing sensation. Puss then co-starred in two other Shrek sequels and his solo film, as well as in multiple DreamWorks Animation videos and TV series. The Shrek and Puss in Boots films have collectively earned more than $3.5 billion worldwide.
