The sequel to ‘Puss in Boots’ will be released soon. Puss in Boots makes a triumphant comeback in a new epic adventure packed with clashes against his fairy-tale foes. The sequel to the Shrek spin-off Puss In Boots, which debuted in 2011 and starred Antonio Banderas as the insanely cute and scary furry bandit, returns eleven years after the first feline-fronted film.
The sequel to Puss in Boots was announced in June 2014; however, due to a reorganization within DreamWorks, the then-titled Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives & 40 Thieves was canceled. The film Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, directed by Guillermo del Toro, is finally slated for release.
With his expert swordsmanship, smooth-talking charm, and amazingly comedic timing, Puss is making a comeback to the series, and fans can’t wait to see him again. And if you’re a fan (like us), this guide will provide you with all the information you need about this highly anticipated picture.
Puss In Boots: The Last Wish Trailer
The trailer for the film, which was published on March 15, 2022, depicts the furry hero protecting his little city of San Ricardo from a giant adversary and remembering the numerous adventurous ways he has spent the past eight of his nine lives; Universal Pictures released it on March 15, 2022. Curiosity didn’t kill Puss; instead, a voracious appetite for adventure and a terrible shellfish allergy did. The teaser also reveals which characters will return in the sequel and Puss’ new foes.
The story will take up some time after the first film’s events, but before Puss meets Shrek. With the recent release of the official trailer, we now have a better sense of what to anticipate from the picture. Puss fights a giant rock monster to the delight of his admirers in the teaser. He beats the beast, but a church bell crashes on top of him, killing him.
According to us, Puss’s life of adventure has already cost him eight of his nine lives. With just one life remaining, Puss must accept the idea that he will not live indefinitely, and he must learn to enjoy his ninth life as if it were his last.
This revelation does not seem to have significantly impacted Puss, as he continues to battle, his latest opponents being Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Kitty Softpaws, Puss’s sidekick and love interest from the previous film, will join him in the next adventure, as will Perro, the duo’s canine companion.
The cast of Puss In Boots: The Last Wish
There’s also some exciting news in the cast: Antonio Banderas will reprise his role as Puss in Boots.
Harvey Guillén (Reacher) has joined the franchise’s voice cast as Kitty and Puss’ new canine companion Perro. In contrast, Florence Pugh (Black Widow), Olivia Colman (The Lost Daughter), Samson Kayo (Sliced), and Wagner Moura (Narcos) have also signed on to portray unnamed roles.
In unspecified roles, Anthony Mendez (Jane the Virgin), John Mulaney (Big Mouth), Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Trolls), and Ray Winstone (Black Widow) have joined the cast.
What Is the Release Date for Puss In Boots: The Last Wish?
Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives & 40 Thieves, the sequel to Puss in Boots, is confirmed for release in 2018. The release date for Puss in Boots: The Last Wish has been scheduled for September 23, 2022, after a four-year wait. Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, like many other films scheduled for release in 2022, will only be available in theatres. This is an excellent shift after years of direct streaming of various films.
The film’s distributor, Universal Pictures, has yet to say if the film will be distributed on DVD, BluRay, or Digital Download or whether it will be streamed. If you want to watch Puss in his second solo film, secure a seat when it premieres in your local theatre. Meanwhile, if you have a Netflix subscription, you may watch Puss in Boots, a 2011 film, and multiple Shrek films. The basic membership to the streaming service is $9.99 per month.
Is there going to be a Puss In Boots 3?
If Puss successfully located the Last Wish and restored his nine lives, the door to even more adventures for the macho gato in San Ricardo and beyond will be opened. This follows on the heels of DreamWorks’ announcement of a fifth Shrek film in 2016.
The anticipated release date for this fifth picture has been moved back from 2018 to 2022, with no word from DreamWorks on whether or not it will ever happen. Cameron Diaz is said to be reprising her role as Princess Fiona in the fifth film, although the retired actress has yet to clarify.
