Everyone’s favourite leche-loving, swashbuckling, fear-defying feline returns to cinemas in Puss In Boots: The Last Wish. 

For the first time in more than a decade, DreamWorks Animation presents a new adventure in the Shrek universe as daring outlaw Puss in Boots discovers that his passion for peril and disregard for safety have taken their toll. Puss has burned through eight of his nine lives, though he lost count along the way. Getting those lives back will send Puss in Boots on his grandest quest yet.

Antonio Banderas returns as the voice of the notorious PiB as he embarks on an epic journey into the Black Forest to find the mythical Wishing Star and restore his lost lives. But with only one life left, Puss will have to humble himself and ask for help from his former partner and nemesis: the captivating Kitty Soft Paws (voiced by Salma Hayek).

In their quest, Puss and Kitty will be aided – against their better judgment – by a ratty, chatty, relentlessly cheerful mutt, Perro (Harvey Guillén). Together, our trio of heroes will have to stay one step ahead of Goldilocks (Florence Pugh) and the Three Bears Crime Family, ‘Big’ Jack Horner (John Mulaney) and terrifying bounty hunter, The Big Bad Wolf (Wagner Moura).

You can see these fabulous felines at Ballina Fair Cinemas – ballinafaircinemas.com.au and the Palace Cinema Byron Bay – palacecinemas.com.au/cinemas/palace-byron-bay this week.
