The movie’s success

Puss in Boots

Puss in Boots enjoyed the purrfect run in the box office, with a worldwide collection of $554 million. Fans expected aa sequel in the coming years, but due to various restrictions within DreamWorks, the movie got shelved. Once the project got green-lit, the makers brought in Bob Persichetti, the head of story from the first film. However, Persichetti had to depart due to unknown reasons. But the project managed to move swiftly from there on out. We can expect the first trailer to drop any day.

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish will release worldwide on September 23, 2022.
