‘Puss In Boots’ Sequel Adds Florence Pugh, Olivia Colman, & More To All-Star Voice Cast

Somebody somewhere has been waiting more than a decade for a sequel to Dreamworks’ Puss in Boots, itself a spinoff from the successful Shrek franchise. And they are indeed getting more of the furry crusading feline with Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, which is gathering quite a voice cast to join the returning Antonio Banderas as the titular cat, Salma Hayek as his love interest Kitty Softpaws, and new addition Harvey Guillén (What We Do in the Shadows, Blue Beetle) as their canine companion, Perro. Deadline has released the first image featuring the trio.

The report also confirms Florence Pugh, Olivia Colman, Wagner Moura, Ray Winstone, John Mulaney, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Anthony Mendez, and Samson Kayo will also join the franchise.

The story follows Puss, who is in the last of his nine lives, on a quest with Kitty and Perro to find the mystical Last Wish that will restore all that he has lost.

Joel Crawford will direct, joined by co-director Januel Mercado and producer Mark Swift, with all three previously having worked together on The Croods: A New Age.

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish opens September 23rd. Look for the new trailer to arrive tomorrow.
