Universal City, California, February 15, 2023 – After a decade-long wait, DreamWorks Animation presents an all-new adventure in the Shrek universe with PUSS IN BOOTS: THE LAST WISH Collector’s Edition available on Digital February 21, 2023 and on 4K UHD, Blu-rayTM and DVD February 28, 2023 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Nominated for Best Animated Film by both the Academy Awards® and the BAFTA Film Awards, Puss in Boots’ latest adventure now includes over an hour of bonus content featuring an all-new exclusive animated short “The Trident”, deleted scenes, a lyric video, and a cast of characters.

Everyone’s favorite leche-loving, swashbuckling, fear-defying feline, Puss in Boots, returns in a new adventure from the Shrek universe as the daring outlaw discovers that his passion for adventure and heroic missions 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 into the Black Forest to find the mythical Wishing Star on his grandest quest yet. With only one life left, Puss is forced to humble himself and ask for help from his former partner and nemesis: Kitty Softpaws. They are joined in their journey by a chatty and cheerful mutt named Perrito. Together, our trio of heroes will need to stay one step ahead of the fairy tale realm’s craftiest crooks including Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

The film is directed by Joel Crawford (The Croods: A New Age), produced by Mark Swift (The Croods: A New Age, the Madagascar films) co-directed by Januel Mercado, and written by Paul Fisher (The Croods: A New Age) and Tommy Swerdlow and starring Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek Pinault, Harvey Guillén (What We Do in the Shadows), Florence Pugh (Black Widow), Olivia Colman, Ray Winstone (Black Widow), Samson Kayo (Sliced), John Mulaney (Big Mouth), Wagner Moura (Narcos), Tony® nominee Da'Vine Joy Randolph (Trolls World Tour) and Emmy® nominee Anthony Mendez (Jane the Virgin).

This film is a total delight from start to finish and easily the best thing ever to come out of the Shrek universe.

I've locked in my pre-order.

I have the other Shrek titles, including the first Puss in Boots, bundled together in a single keepcase 7-disc box set that Universal released a while back. The Last Wish will look odd on the shelf next to it as a single title. There's no way for the packaging to look uniform. But I can't wait to own this.

If someone doesn't already own the first Puss in Boots, the 2-pack will probably end up being cheaper than buying them both separately. But that cover artwork is really ugly.

I could drone on about the lack of 3D, but that ship has sailed. This and Turning Red were the two animated films containing the most fun and inventiveness this year. Day one buy.

I didn't lose my mind over this the way that some people did. Still too much Shrek residue, I guess, which I've had a distaste for since the second movie, combined with a feeling like they probably should have done something besides hire the guy from Spider-Verse and tell him to recreate the animation style in the action scenes whole-cloth.

That said, it's a solid movie and definitely the best thing Dreamworks has done with this franchise. Jack Horner is a villain for the ages. Plus, Ethics Bug is an absolute delight.

Still too much Shrek residue

I don't understand this complaint at all. This barely has anything to do with the plot of Shrek. Other than Puss himself, who obviously has to be in a movie titled for him, Shrek characters speak two lines in the whole movie. This is very much its own film with its own storyline.

This film was directed by Joel Crawford. His feature directorial debut was The Croods: A New Age. Januel Mercado is listed as the co-director. Neither of them had anything to do with Into the Spider-Verse.

Bob Persichetti, co-director of Spider-Verse, was attached to direct between Del Toro and Crawford. The action sequences, especially the first one, is heavily aping the same style, down to the way they were animating on twos. I'm guessing most people didn't notice, but I'm also guessing that there was a pretty decent amount of development work from his tenure that made it into the final film.

As for the Shrek connection, its a spin-off that operates under the same rules and under a lot of the same humor style. But like I said, even if I didn't love it the same way others did, it's the still the best thing to come out of that whole franchise.

I posted this in the Roundup thread for this week as well, but I thought I would post it here too because it pertains to this release. A warning for anyone looking to get Pus in Boots: The Last Wish from Amazon.

As of this writing, the estimated delivery date for a new order of the 4K+Blu-ray version is currently showing as March 27. That is a month from now. So it appears they don't have enough stock to get it out quicker.

The Blu-ray+DVD version, which I have on order, is still showing a delivery date of tomorrow, February 28.

Bob Persichetti, co-director of Spider-Verse, was attached to direct

Persichetti also worked on the first Puss in Boots film from 2011 before Spider-Verse. So I don't think it is fair to assume that they just asked him to do what he did in that movie. He had previous experience with the studio and this character, so of course it made sense to ask him. I like the version of the film that we have now with Joel Crawford, though, so I think it worked out in the end. Regardless of how much Persichetti ended up contributing to the final project, Crawford obviously did enough to get the directing credit.

As for the Shrek connection, its a spin-off that operates under the same rules and under a lot of the same humor style.

I want to be very clear that I don't mean to antagonize you here. But I guess I just don't understand why you would even see this movie if you already knew going in that you don't like the Shrek universe. I'm one of the apparently few movie fans who hasn't seen The Way of Water because I didn't really care for the first Avatar. Why go back for a sequel to something that doesn't work for you?

Anyway, I actually think both Puss in Boots films have a much more straightforward adventure film style. The pop culture references and current music choices are gone, and that is part of why I like this. This is still a very funny film, but it seems to be going for more of a timeless feel than the Shrek films did.
