DreamWorks Unveils First Look, Cast for ‘Puss in Boots: The Last Wish’

This fall, DreamWorks Animation’s leche-loving, swashbuckling, fear-defying feline returns! For the first time in more than a decade, a new adventure in the Shrek universe will unfold as daring outlaw Puss in Boots discovers that his passion for peril and disregard for safety have taken their toll. Universal Pictures today unveiled a first look image featuring the whiskered hero, his partner in adventure Kitty and a new canine companion — and the roster of voices bringing Puss in Boots: The Last Wish to life.

In the long-awaited sequel, 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).

The all-star comedic cast also 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).

Joel Crawford is directing this epic follow-up to the Oscar-nominated 2011 blockbuster, with Mark Swift as producer — 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.

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is slated for theatrical release on September 23. The official first trailer is coming soon, so stay tuned!
