If your kids are fans of the Shrek and Puss in Boots universe, then we’re sure you’ve all checked out the Puss in Boots selection on Netflix. There’s the six-season animated series, an interactive special, and Shrek’s Swamp Stories. But you may be wondering about the feature film Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. Well, the good news is that it’s coming to Netflix! Is it appropriate for kids?

The 2022 adventure-comedy, produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Universal Pictures, has been streaming on Peacock. But thanks to a deal between Netflix and Universal, many of the company’s movies come to Netflix after they spend some time on the other streaming service.

So is the sequel to the original 2011 Puss in Boots film, and sixth overall in the Shrek franchise, okay for kids to watch or is this production a bit more mature? We’ve got the answer for you below!

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish age rating

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish has a PG age rating. This means parental guidance is suggested and is given to films due to some material that may not be suitable for children. According to the Motion Picture Association, the kitty-centric movie has been given this age rating because of action and violence, rude humor and language, and some scary moments. Overall, it should be fine for children to watch. But a parent might want to be present or even check out the film first before showing it to your kids.

The production follows the titular character, once again voiced by Antonio Banderas, as he goes on a quest to reclaim eight of the nine lives he’s already used up, per the synopsis. Puss in Boots has to find the mythical Last Wish to do so. Salma Hayek reprises her role as Kitty Softpaws, with Harvey Guillén, Florence Pugh, Olivia Colman, Ray Winstone, Samson Kayo, John Mulaney, Wagner Moura, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph joining the Shrek universe for the first time.
