The beloved character Puss in Boots returns for another exciting adventure where he battles against various fairytale enemies. The sequel to the original Puss in Boots film, which was released in 2011 and voiced by Antonio Banderas, will continue to delve into the character’s backstory. The sequel, titled Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, is scheduled to be released in theaters this fall.
The original Puss in Boots film, released in 2011, introduced the backstory of the main character and his adventures with popular fairytale figures like Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, and Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk. The upcoming sequel, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, is expected to further expand on this established world. With the film’s release approaching, let’s explore everything we currently know about the movie.
Trailer For Puss in Boots: The Last Wish
Universal Pictures unveiled the film’s trailer on March 15, 2022. The preview showcases Puss in Boots as he protects his hometown, San Ricardo, from a massive adversary. It also reveals that Puss has used up eight of his nine lives through various daring exploits, driven by his passion for adventure despite his unfortunate shellfish allergy. The trailer provides glimpses of returning characters from the first film and introduces new adversaries for Puss in his latest adventure.
The film takes place after the events of the first film but before Puss meets Shrek. The recently released trailer provides insights into the movie’s content. In the trailer, Puss engages in a battle against a massive rock monster while his fans cheer him on. Despite defeating the monster, Puss dies when a church bell falls on him. It is revealed that Puss has already used up eight of his nine lives due to his adventurous lifestyle. With only one life remaining, Puss must come to terms with his mortality and make the most of his final life. However, this realization doesn’t seem to change Puss significantly, as he continues his life of fighting. The new adversaries he faces are Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Puss is joined by his sidekick and love interest Kitty Softpaws from the first film, as well as the new character Perro, their canine companion.
The movie trailer gives us a preview of what the film will be like, but we’ll have to wait until it comes out in theaters this fall to know all the details and see the full story.
