Puss in Boots 2 Casts Florence Pugh and Olivia Colman, Reveals First Look at New Character
Universal and DreamWorks have revealed that they have added Florence Pugh and Olivia Colman to the cast of the sequel film Puss in Boots 2. Pugh and Colman join the returning stars of Salma Hayek and Antonio Banderas. Also joining the cast is Harvey Guillén who will debut as the character Perro and a first look was revealed for the character.
It has been over a decade since we saw Puss in Boots in action and the long-awaited sequel is gaining traction with a trailer set to be revealed tomorrow. The sequel officially titled Puss in Boots: The Last Wish will follow Puss who is on the last of his nine lives and together with Kitty and Perro, the sword-wielding feline will journey to find the mythical Last Wish to restore all the lives he has lost.
The film has an ensemble of stars joining Pugh, Colman, Banderas, and Hayek. Joining them will be Wagner Moura, Ray Winstone, John Mulaney, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Anthony Mendez, and Samson Kayo. The film is co-directed by Joel Crawford and Januel Mercado with Mark Swift producing.
The sequel originally held the title of Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives & 40 Thieves and had Bob Persichetti helming the project with Latifa Ouaou producing. Undisclosed reasons led them to depart the project and it was handed to Crawford, Mercado, and Swift who were hit with delays. The film seems to be back on track with the Shrek universe film back in action soon.
Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is set to release in theaters on September 23rd, 2022. Check out the first look at Perro below:
