‘Puss in Boots 2’ Is Coming Soon — Here’s Where to Watch

Give me those shining beautiful eyes NOW!

Antonio Banderas’ beloved Puss in Boots is set to make his return this year, more than a decade after his first solo movie in 2011. Introduced for the first time in Shrek 2—pause for the obligatory 🎶 someBODY ONCE TOLD ME 🎶 that starts playing in my head whenever the brilliant, revolutionary cinematic masterpiece that is the Shrek tetralogy is mentioned—Puss in Boots has become one of the most iconic characters of the story (with his swagger and meme-worthy eyes). And now, after a bumpy and delayed production ride, he’s ready to return.

After his adventures with Humpty Dumpty and the Magic Beans in the first Puss in Boots, the trailer for the new movie—titled Puss in Boots: The Last Wish—released on March 15th, and shows our favourite cat heroically dealing with a giant. But then, also, accidentally getting taken out by a stray bell, in a very Ernesto De La Cruz-in-Coco fashion. And while it’s true that cats have nine lives, this latest accident will have Puss realizing that he’s already used and lost eight of them (what with getting literally crushed in fights or getting himself shot out of a cannon), so what will he do with the last one he has left?

What we know for sure is that he’s going to team up again with his partner from the first Puss in Boots movie, Salma Hayek’s Kitty Softpaws, as well as with newcomer Perro—who is, as you might guess, a dog (played by Harvey Gullén of What We Do in the Shadows fame). We’ll have to find out the rest when the movie releases in theaters, which—according to Collider— will be on December 21st, 2022.

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is indeed expected to have a theatrical release, which means that it probably won’t pop up anywhere else for at least a month after its premiere. Anything could change of course, in this new world of streaming/theater hybrids, but if everything goes as planned, then once the 30 days are up, we expect the movie will probably pass onto Universal’s streaming service, Peacock. But that’s not to say it could never land on Netflix in the future—the first Puss in Boots movie is available there, so it might just be a matter of time. The real question is, how long can you wait when you have those sweet, doe eyes begging you to watch as soon as possible?
