What is the Release Date of Puss in Boots: The Last Wish?
On December 21, 2022, the movie is scheduled for release in theaters. Before being removed from the release schedule in January 2015 due to corporate restructuring and DreamWorks Animation’s new policy to release just two films a year, it was originally set to be released on November 2, 2018, and then later on December 21, 2018. The project was revived, and a release date of September 23, 2022, was assigned to it. However, it was changed to the current December 21 date in April 2022.
On June 14, 2022, the first 30 minutes of the movie were screened at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival. Director Joel Crawford agreed that the film had a darker tone than its predecessor, saying Puss’s “fear of death is the engine that drives the movie.”

What is the Plot of Puss in Boots: The Last Wish?
Almost 17 years have passed since Puss first appeared in the “Shrek” films. Puss must be aware of how long that is for a cat to live because “The Last Wish” is about his desire to live a little longer. Puss is searching for the fabled Last Wish to recover his eight other lives, which he has lost on his adventures. With only one life left, this is the most hazardous trip Puss has ever taken.
The plot of “The Last Wish” seems to have more original components than most “Shrek” films, which is an intriguing aspect. Despite the popularity of wishes in folklore, there are no fairy tales that mention a “last wish.” The title of this film, “Last Wish,” is unknown; it may refer to a genie, a fairy godmother, or some other folktale. If it’s brand-new, it’ll be one of the few times DreamWorks didn’t draw inspiration from an old fairy tale for a significant plot point in the “Shrek” universe. Whatever occurs, these mysteries will be cleared up when “Puss in Boots: The Last Wish” debuts in September of the following year.
Is Puss in Boots a prequel to Shrek 2?
The movie, a prequel and spin-off of the Shrek series is set years before Puss in Boots first met Shrek and Donkey.
Who is the villain in Puss in Boots last wish?
