Cats have nine lives, right? Well, what if you’re a swashbuckling kitty who craves adventure and danger, but you only have one life remaining? Well, in the case of Puss in Boots, you get shipped off to the feline version of a retired person’s home.
As seen in the trailer for “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish,” retired life isn’t sitting well with the title character as he dreams of his glory days of battling bad guys and riding off into the sunset. So, when he hears about a falling star that can grant one wish, Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) goes on a new adventure to get some more lives.
Joining Banderas in the voice cast for the film are Salma Hayek, Florence Pugh, Olivia Colman, John Mulaney, Harvey Guillén, Wagner Moura, Ray Winstone, Samson Kayo, Emmy nominee Anthony Mendez, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph. ‘The Last Wish’ is directed by Joel Crawford, who is the filmmaker behind “The Croods: A New Age.”
“Puss in Boots: The Last Wish” arrives in theaters on December 21. You can watch the trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis:
For the first time in more than a decade, DreamWorks Animation presents a new adventure in the Shrek universe as daring outlaw Puss in Boots discovers that his passion for peril and disregard for safety have taken their toll. 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).
