(2022) (voices of Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Computer-Animated Action/Comedy: Down to his last life, a swashbuckling feline sets out to find a fallen wishing star he hopes will resurrect his expired lives.
After defeating a giant but losing his life in the process, feline swashbuckler Puss in Boots (voice of ANTONIO BANDERAS) learns that he's down to the last of his nine lives. Accordingly, after a run-in with Wolf (voice of WAGNER MOURA) who he believes to be a bounty hunter happy to bring him in dead, Puss follows the advice of his doctor and goes to live as a regular cat in a feline sanctuary run by Mama Luna (Da'VINE JOY RANDOLPH) where he's befriended by a dog pretending to be a cat, Perrito (voice of HARVEY GUILLEN).
When Goldilocks (voice of FLORENCE PUGH) and her family of three bears -- Mama Bear (voice of OLIVIA COLMAN), Papa Bear (voice of RAY WINSTONE), and Baby Bear (voice of SAMSON KAYO) -- show up looking for him, Puss likewise believes they're bounty hunters. They don't recognize him and leave, but not before he learns they really wanted to hire him to steal a map now in the possession of Jack Horner (voice of JOHN MULANEY).
It reportedly will lead to a fallen star that will grant a single wish, and Puss wants to find that to get back the rest of his lives. But with others also wanting that star -- including his former lover, Kitty Softpaws (voice of SALMA HAYEK PINAULT) -- Puss must go back into swashbuckler mode, thus putting him in danger of losing his last life.
