Like any other cat, the swashbuckling, trouble-making Puss in Boots has nine lives.
Or he had nine lives. He sort of forgot to keep track of them as they slipped away.
In his third solo film, Puss will have to team up with Kitty Soft Paws and a new ally, Perro, to restore his lost lives once and for all. Check out the beginnings of their epic adventure in the trailer for Puss in Boots: The Last Wish below.
Puss in Boots: The Last Wish sees our feline hero embark 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.
The trailer gives PIB fans plenty to get excited about. We get a glimpse of both new and returning characters, plenty of laughs, and perhaps the best bit of all – a cute-off between Puss and Kitty.
Academy Award nominee Antonio Banderas returns to voice Puss, with Salma Hayek voicing his nemesis Kitty Soft Paws. The upcoming feature also introduces a new ally in the form of cheerful pup Perro, voiced by Harvey Guillén. The trio will have to stay one step ahead of Goldilocks (Florence Pugh) and the Three Bears Crime Family, “Big” Jack Horner (John Mulaney) and terrifying bounty hunter, The Big Bad Wolf (Wagner Moura). Other voice cast members include Olivia Colman, Ray Winstone, Samson Kayo, Anthony Mendez, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph.
Puss in Boots first appeared in the Dreamworks hit Shrek 2. He also starred in two of his own spinoff films, though it has been a decade since the last one released. The newest film in the PIB world comes from director Joel Crawford and producer Mark Swift.
Puss in Boots: The Last Wish premieres in theaters September 23.
