In it, our main Puss in Boots has a rude awakening, realizing he’s carelessly burned eight of his nine cat lives, and his next encounter with death could spell the end of his legend. As a last resort, he then embarks on a mythical quest to find the legendary star wishing to help him replenish his life supply. Although it is a spin-off sequel to the 2011 Puss in Bootsmuch of the cast here is new – Harvey Guillén as Perrito the abused dog, Florence Pugh (Black Widow) as Goldilocks, Wagner Moura as Cunning Wolf and Oscar winner Olivia Colman (The favourite) as Mama Bear.

Similar to DreamWorks Animation’s previous project The Bad Guys, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish follows a similar animation style to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – hand-drawn art with scraps of footage during action segments. “In the opening, we use more hand-drawn techniques,” director Crawford explained in an interview. “When Puss is running across rooftops, the movement isn’t always very smooth. It was important to us, to feel like it’s a fairy tale that you’re immersed in…” Crawford said .

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is now playing in theaters around the world, including India.
