This fall, comedy has nine lives as DreamWorks Animation – the studio behind “How to Train Your Dragon,” “Shrek,” and “Kung Fu Panda” – presents the epic story of cinema’s funniest, furriest feline movie star, Puss in Boots.
Long before he even met Shrek, the notorious fighter, lover and outlaw Puss in Boots (ANTONIO BANDERAS) becomes a hero when he sets off on an adventure with the tough and street smart Kitty Softpaws (SALMA HAYEK) and the mastermind Humpty Dumpty (ZACH GALIFIANAKIS) to save his town. Complicating matters along the way are the notorious outlaws Jack and Jill (BILLY BOB THORNTON and AMY SEDARIS), who will do anything to see that Puss and his band do not succeed.
This is the true story of The Cat, The Myth, The Legend…and, of course, The Boots.
“Puss in Boots” is directed by CHRIS MILLER. It is produced by JOE M. AGUILAR and LATIFA OUAOU. The executive producers are ANDREW ADAMSON and GUILLERMO DEL TORO. The screenplay is by TOM WHEELER, with a story by BRIAN LYNCH, WILL DAVIES and Tom Wheeler. The music is by HENRY JACKMAN. This film has been rated “PG” for some adventure action and mild rude humor by the MPAA. www.pussinbootsthemovie.com
