Cast’s comeback from original Puss in Boots cast for Puss in Boots: The Last Wish

The gazpacho-loving gato will be played by Antonio Banderas once more in the upcoming Puss in Boots sequel.

What Is Puss in Boots: The Last Wish About?

Since the original Puss in Boots hit theaters 11 years ago, the Shrek saga has experienced a bit of a comeback, to put it mildly, thanks to countless internet memes. It’s odd that DreamWorks hasn’t yet revisited the Far, Far Away mythical world. Up to the release of the eagerly anticipated successor Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, which brings back the cat with the sword who is voiced by Antonio Banderas.

Puss in Boots is in the midst of an existential crisis when the movie opens, several years after the events of the previous movie, after realizing that he has used up all nine of his life. For the first time in life, Puss in Boots is terrified of dying rather than the Big Bad Wolf who seems to be a supernatural being. Having lost, Puss settles in with an elderly woman named Mama Luna who takes in a lot of stray cats. Puss, who has been made to live like a cat, meets Perro, a tenacious small dog wearing a sock jumper that has been living unwelcomely with the rodents under Mama Luna’s house. When Puss receives a bounty, a number of evil characters, including “Big” Jack Horner and Goldilocks and the Three Bears, pursue him. Puss, who has been estranged from Kitty Softpaws since the events of the previous movie, re-emerges, further complicating the situation. After discovering of the shooting star that can grant him additional lives, Puss, Kitty, and Perro embark on a mad quest to obtain it before their foes do.

Final Words 

The movie is unexpectedly a lot more ambitious and sophisticated than one might anticipate; it chooses to go deeply into topics of mortality and facing death, going beyond the lessons you might anticipate from your usual family movie. While the overall plot may be predictable, the places it goes while advising it almost seem like it’s approaching the adults or those who were born and raised with the Shrek movies rather than the younger viewers that weren’t even born when the previous movie hit the big screen. The stakes are actually felt, and there are scenes in the film’s climax that are proficiently tense. The film has many gags and is among the funniest of the year, but its profound emotional core is what keeps it together. The Last Wish seeks to accomplish something different and one that suggests a positive future for DreamWorks in an era where many sequels fall short of their potential by simply trying to duplicate what their parents and grandparents did so brilliantly.
