Puss in Boots: The Last Wish

Universal Pictures, DreamWorks Animation and Pacific Data Images present a PG, 100-minute, Animation, Adventure, Comedy, directed by Joel Crawford and Januel Mercado, screenplay by Paul Fisher and story by Tommy Swerdlow and Tom Wheeler with a theater release of December 21, 2022.

Puss in Boots (voice of Antonio Banderas) is still a wanted Puss but he has made many friends in the opening of the story but when his eighth life is taken away, he is told by a local Doctor (voice of Anthony Mendez) that his life is ending. Heroics and crime must come to an end for Puss because with one life left his days are short especially since he is being followed by The Big Bad Wolf (voice of Wagner Moura). So, off he goes to live with Mama Luna (voice of Da’Vine Joy Randolph) and her over-abundance of rescued cats. Me being a cat daddy, I found this scene to be one of the more humorous moments in the story. Yet for Puss it was not enjoyable but he did make a new friend, Perro (voice of Harvey Guillen) a dog who was disguising itself as a cat in order for free room and board.

Meanwhile Goldilocks (voice of Florence Pugh) and the three bears, Mama (voice of Olivia Colman), Papa (voice of Ray Winstone) and Baby Bear (voice of Samson Kayo) all hot on the trail of Puss because they need him to steal the secret wish from the clutches of Jack Horner (voice of John Mulaney). As for Puss he is now also searching for the star wish but not alone since he is joined by Perro and Kitty Softpaws (voice of Salma Hayek) that has shown up for the same wish. So as all the journeys continue everyone ends up in the same place, fighting for the same wish upon a star for all separate reasons. But who will have there wish fulfilled? She the film and find out!

I enjoyed the film actually much more in the beginning of the story then in the end. I was a bit taken back by the use of two different animation styles at times, which I don’t believe was needed. All of the voices were well done but a few times due to accents I missed a few lines. Overall, it’s a fun story that will entertain the kids and have you laughing a few times as well. They do have some good messages about animals in the story but then again, some not so good like Mama Luna being a hoarder of cats.
