    Puss in Boots Sequel & The Bad Guys set for 2022 releases
    Universal Pictures has set the release date for two new
    animated films from DreamWorks Animation including the
    long-in-development Puss in Boots sequel which will be
    titled Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. Oscar nominee Antonia
    Banderas is officially returning to voice the beloved
    Shrek character, who will again grace the big screen on
    Friday, September 23, 2022.

    In addition, the studio has also announced the release
    date of DreamWorks Animation's newest original animated
    feature titled The Bad Guys which is scheduled to arrive
    in theaters on Friday, April 15, 2022. The said release
    date will see the film going up against another
    high-profile film in the form of Paramount Pictures'
    romantic comedy The Lost City of D starring Sandra Bullock
    and Channing Tatum.

    Puss in Boots: The Last Wish will be directed by Joel
    Crawford, who is coming off from the critical success of
    last year's The Croods: A New Age. Produced by Mark Swift,
    the sequel will again follow Puss in Boots as he discovers
    that his passion for adventure has taken its toll: He has
    burned through eight of his nine lives, leaving him with
    only one life left. Puss sets out on an epic journey to
    find the mythical Last Wish and restore his nine lives.

    The 2011 Puss in Boots featured an ensemble voice cast led
    by Antonio Banderas as the titular talking cat. The film
    also starred Golden Globe-nominated actress Salma Hayek,
    Zach Galifianakis, Billy Bob Thornton, Constance Marie,
    Mike Mitchell and Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro, who also
    served as executive producer. The original also earned a
    nomination for Best Animated Feature at the 84th Academy

    The Shrek franchise grossed nearly $3 billion between 2001
    and 2010. The Puss in Boots spin-off in 2011 earned an
    additional worldwide box office of about $555 million.

    Based on Aaron Blabey's best-selling children's book series,
    The Bad Guys follows five notorious bad guys who've been
    behind big heists - Mr. Wolf, Mr. Snake, Mr. Piranha,
    Mr. Shark, and Ms. Tarantula - as they attempt their most
    challenging job yet...going good.

    Pierre Perifel (Kung Fu Panda films) will be making his
    feature directorial debut with Etan Cohen and Patrick Hughes
    set as executive producers. Damon Ross and Rebecca Huntley
    have also boarded the film to serve as producers.
