The teaser trailer has been around for a couple of months now, but we’re finally getting the chance to see some actual footage from Puss in Boots, which charts the early years of Shrek’s feline sidekick. You can check out the new promo below.
Featuring the voices of Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek and Zach Galifianakis among others, Puss definitely looks to be keeping the spirit of the Shrek films, albeit shoe-horning in a lot more kitty comedy. But it really does look like a lot of fun, with Banderas’ charismatic tones matched by some solid gags and the promise of enjoyable action.
The plot is also referenced this time around, with Puss – who likes to portray himself as a hero despite some questionable morals – on a quest to stop two villains (Billy Bob Thornton and Amy Sedaris) getting their hands on a powerful magical item. Naturally, he wants to steal it for himself. But he’ll need the help of pal Humpty Dumpty (Galifianakis) while also dealing with the quick-witted, street-savvy Kitty (Hayek).
Oh, and the new, Desperado-spoofing poster has arrived at the same time...
