In Shrek 2, a swashbuckling cat named Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas of Uncharted) debuted as the assassin hired to kill Shrek (The Pentaverate‘s Mike Myers). Armed with his signature sword, boots, and hat, the animated feline abandons his plans to assassinate Shrek and instead teams up with the ogre and Donkey (You People‘s Eddie Murphy) to take down the Fairy Godmother (Sing 2‘s Jennifer Jane Saunders). Puss in Boots instantly became a fan favorite in the Shrek franchise, leading to a spinoff film, 2011’s Puss in Boots.
Eleven years later, the heroic cat is back for the sequel in Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. Puss learns that only one of his nine lives remains and sets out to find the Last Wish of the Wishing Star. Puss teams with Kitty (Eternals’ Salma Hayek Pinault) and Perrito (What We Do in the Shadows’ Harvey Guillén) to regain the eight lives he lost. The film became a box-office hit, becoming the second-highest-grossing animated film of 2022 with a worldwide gross of over $458 million.
