The legends of the Master Cat took hold over 300 years ago from a French fairy tale, by Charles Perrault. Fast forward several centuries, and the character claws his way higher in popularity, thanks to his appearance and prominence in the CG Shrek films. Who? The Booted Cat, Puss in Boots! Originally introduced in Shrek 2, the character has forever been associated with Shrek, Donkey, and Fiona as the fairy tale super team. Now, however, Puss is ready to step out on his own, as DreamWorks Animation readies a film just for him, appropriately titled Puss in Boots. The story is a prequel, before Puss met up with Shrek, following the hunt for Jack and Jill’s legendary power.
The story follows the early days, when Puss was a solitary, swashbuckling hero, protecting the innocent from danger and trouble. After one adventure, he overhears several pub mates talking about a pair of murderous outlaws, named Jack and Jill, who discovered a tremendous power capable of destroying the world. We’re not going to stand for that, now are we?
Creating a little super hero team of his own, Puss seeks out his old friend Humpty Dumpty, who introduces him to Kitty Softpaws. With sidekicks kicking at his side, the trio head out on their dangerous adventure. Follow along when it hits theaters, October 28th.
