Viewers were introduced to many new characters in Shrek 2, but the character that became an instant fan favorite and a scene-stealing sensation was Puss in Boots. This is why the creative team decided to make a spin-off film about him and his origin story titled Puss in Boots (2011). Since that film was a huge success, plans for a sequel were talked about in November 2012. The sequel ended up being titled Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, and it was released in theaters in December 2022. Now, it’s coming to Netflix!
Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is a kid animated film helmed by Joel Crawford from a screenplay written by Paul Fisher and Tommy Swerdlow. It’s the sixth installment in the Shrek franchise and is set after the events of Shrek Forever After.
After burning through eight of his nine lives, Puss in Boots teams up with Kitty and Perrito and sets out on an epic journey into the Black Forest to find the mythical Last Wish and restore his lost lives.
Academy Award nominee Antonio Banderas returns to voice the titular character, Puss in Boots. The rest of the voice cast includes Salma Hayek Pinault, Olivia Colman, Harvey Guillén, Samson Kayo, Wagner Moura, Anthony Mendez, and many others.
