About this deal

That's the only note of caution. Because all the rest of this is utterly perfect. An amazing viewing experience and you'll never forget it. I can't recommend it highly enough. Fearless hero lyrics vid. A three min music vid of the aforementioned song. With all new animation. And lyrics on the screen so you can karaoke. You will want to. It's so good. The characters are well-established, flawed, and loveable. The dialogue between all of them is witty and the comedic pacing is really clever. The villains are like taking bites out of each chocolate from a variety box, and loving all of the flavours. They’re so fun, and honestly downright spooky at times, almost horror movie-like in the best way. And you clearly understand everyone’s motives, they’re all laid out there. I’m so happy I didn’t need to do any guess-work or expect a secret plot-twist that’s vaguely hinted at.

Here, Puss starts by living how he always does. Being the Puss in Boots of legend. The famous, fearless hero. And loving every minute of it. Then he suddenly finds he only has one of his nine lives left. First up, the script was clearly sorted first. You do see films like that occasionally where you get such a feeling. This has a solid story. Excellent character development and characterisation. It's central theme happens organically as it goes along and is never overstated. It works. It knows how to tell a story. Which, since he knows how fairytales and stories work, is great.

A CAST OF CHARACTERS - You know their voices, now see the faces behind all the beloved PUSS IN BOOTS characters. If you look at the rationale behind the difference in the release dates between the US and UK, it’s probably to do with post-COVID nervousness and audience differences around the winter holidays. This could just be the plan for cinema and then to brings things a little more in-line for home premier and standard rental, so we’ll try to keep you updated here.

ALL-NEW EXCLUSIVE SHORT “THE TRIDENT” - When you're the legendary Puss in Boots, life and death go paw in paw. In this epic original short, Puss recalls one of his most daring deaths yet. Deleted scenes. Three. Can be watched all in a row or individually. The former takes eight mins. Some are not finished in the animation. All are good. With some very good character stuff.This is a review of the 2022 animation ‘Puss In Boots: the Last Wish’. We watched it on the 2023 All Region Blu-ray from DreamWorks Animation, and Universal. This plays in 2.39:1 HD Widescreen and 1080p, with 7.1 Dolby Digital Plus audio, that sounds fabulous. The picture quality is also first-rate, with superbly sharp animations, and gorgeously rich colour. This provides 102 minutes of top-of-the-range animation ~ slightly longer than the original. There is also a chunky selection of extras. Puss’ was both successful, and critically well-received, and it was the firm intention of Guillermo del Toro (Executive Producer) and Chris Miller (Director), to make a sequel. However, it was a long time in development ~ DreamWorks went through restructuring ~ and the director of the sequel changed to Joel Crawford. Like Miller before him, Crawford had been with DreamWorks for years, working particularly as a Story Artist. Just over eleven years since Puss in Boots from the Shrek films got his own solo movie, we suddenly get a sequel to it. You probably could get into this easily if you hadn't seen any of the Shrek films. Or the 2011 Puss in Boots movie. I think it's better to have seen them first though, as you will get a little more out of this if you have.

The film came out in cinemas on the 3rd February 2023 in the UK, so the release on home premier rental over here is close to our target range of late-March/early-April 2023. This is pretty much bag on the expected 45-60 days from its initial release on the big screen. Then there's the characters. In addition to doing amazing work with Puss, the cast of supporting ones is superb. Every character is fully rounded. And gets their own storylines with a beginning a middle and an end. We also get a really great villain. A character who is out and out bad. Who know they're that way. And goes with it. That's the way to write a great villain. They do have motivation, so they are three dimensional. But bad with it anyway. It's great. Joel Crawford, Januel Mercado’s compelling animation film, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, made its anticipated debut on the big screen on December 21st, 2022.

There's also an amazing amount of dvd extras. Which is a nice change seeing how rare those can be nowadays: The voice cast are amazing. Antonio Banderas knows how to play this role, and he sings and emotes and makes you laugh and emotional. Ray Winstone was born to voice Papa Bear of the three bears. It's an amazing voice performance. As it is with the actor who does Perrito also. To say that this movie is INCREDIBLE is already an understatement. It is so GOOD in so many ways. It really taps into the core of how fun and meaningful storytelling through animation can really be. From the stylization to the frame rate drops when in action sequences/battles, this movie is clearly influenced by Spiderverse (which, thank god animation studios are incorporating, that movie is *chef’s kiss). The art is just SO beautiful, the shrek-universe has never looked so good before. The first opportunity to see the film at home is the home premier rental, which is now available in the UK following its arrival in the US. Puss In Boots The Last Wish only came out in cinemas in North America on the 21st December 2022, but it looks like they opted to go relatively early for Home Premier to buy, and the option to rent it online wasn’t too far behind it.
