Puss in BootsThe animation industry has been booming for a number of years, and Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is only the most recent entry in a long list of outstanding animated movies.

The sequel to the 2011 film, which also has a startling appearance that has stirred fan enthusiasm, continues the popular feline’s adventures.

It raises rumors regarding the Shrek 5 film, a long-desired project among fans.

The Last Wish

Antonio Banderas has played Puss’ voice from his debut in Shrek 2 (2004) and his subsequent appearances in the succeeding sequels and the 2011 stand-alone movie.

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, the sixth film in the Shrek universe, continues Puss’s adventures.

In the film, the former ogre hunter loses yet another one of his nine lives, leaving him with just one.

Puss initially rejects the idea of living as a lap cat and doesn’t start to reconsider his thoughts until he meets Death.

He overhears a plot to seek for the legendary Last Wish, however, which might be able to give him back his nine lives.

The film received excellent reviews from both audiences and reviewers, and it was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film.

Shrek made his first television cameo since 2010 in Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, which sparked speculation regarding the long-awaited Shrek 5.


The success of the film has given Shrek’s supporters more ammo, especially in light of the ending.

There are suggestions that a Shrek 5 movie might be made.

Antonio Banderas discussed the possibility of a future sequel in a radio interview with Radio Times.

He also alluded to the ending of The Last Wish, which would enable the reappearance of characters like Shrek, Donkey, Fiona, and others.

“It doesn’t depend on me, normally sequels are chosen by the audience,” said Banderas.

“[But] if they go to the movie theater massively in the way that they are responding to Puss in Boots probably this could lead to the possibility of another movie with Puss.”

“Or as the movie indicates towards the end when you see Far Far Away, they are going to visit some old friends at the end of the movie – maybe Shrek is coming back.”

A returning Shrek franchise?

In Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, Puss, Kitty, and Perrito hijacked a ship and went back to the Far Far Away.

If Shrek 5 happens (which is something to wish for), Puss’s dependable crew may show up in the film.

If the sequel is allowed, it will offer a totally unique experience from the first four movies and broaden the cast.

Everyone’s favorite ogre was put in another reality in Shrek Forever After (2010), where he never saved Fiona from the tower.

Shrek 5 is not likely to be made without Cameron Diaz and Mike Myers, who started the franchise.

Fans also anticipate the return of their favorite characters, including:

  • Gingerbread Man 
  • Pinocchio
  • The Three Little Pigs
  • The Three Blind Mice
  • Donkey

A Donkey spinoff

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish’s success boosted demand for a Shrek sequel and rekindled fan interest in the series.

Eddie Murphy, who lent his voice to the stallion in the first four Shrek movies, said he would be game for a follow-up or maybe a Donkey spinoff movie.

He emphasized that if DreamWorks Animation invited him to join Shrek 5, he would do so right now.

The Donkey voice made a few jabs at Puss in Boots to extend the relationship between his character and Puss in Boots.

“I’d absolutely be open if they ever came with another Shrek, I’d do it in two seconds. I love Donkey,” said Murphy.

“You know, they did Puss in Boots movie. I was like, ‘They should have did a Donkey movie. Donkey is funnier than Puss in Boots.'”

“I mean, I love Puss in Boots, but he ain’t as funny as the Donkey.”
