DreamWorks Animation Drops 'Puss in Boots: The Last Wish' Trailer

Better make that last life count - the all-new animated adventure stars Antonio Banderas reprising his role as the fearless, swashbuckling PiB, with Salma Hayek as our feline hero’s former partner and nemesis, Kitty Soft Paws – coming to theaters in time for Christmas.

The famed feline hero returns… maybe a bit more cautiously? DreamWorks Animation has shared a new trailer for its upcoming holiday release of the latest comedy-adventure from the Shrek universe, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. In this all-new 3DCG romp, the 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. The film hits theaters December 21, with sneak peeks coming to some markets November 26 (get tickets here).

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, the 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).

Find out where a hero’s dignity goes to die… and hilarity ensues!

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, Puss in BootsThe Last Wish is directed by Joel Crawford and produced by Mark Swift, the creative team behind DreamWorks Animation’s 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 became a global, scene-stealing sensation. Puss then co-starred in two other Shrek sequels, his solo film, and in multiple DreamWorks Animation videos and TV series. The Shrek and Puss in Boots films have collectively earned more than $3.5 billion worldwide.
