Puss In Boots joins Hot Ones host Sean Evans in bizarre video to promote the character’s new adventure, the movie Puss In Boots: The Last Wish.
Puss In Boots guests on Hot Ones to promote the character’s new movie, Puss In Boots: The Last Wish. The adventures of Puss In Boots originated in the Shrek franchise, with Puss’ first appearance being in the 2004 film Shrek 2. Since then, the character became a fan-favorite and thus received his own spinoff franchise. The first Puss In Boots movie, named after the character, debuted in theaters in 2011 and was nominated for a Best Animated Feature in the Oscars. Now, 11 years later, Puss returns to the big screen with Puss In Boots: The Last Wish.
Dreamworks has released a bizarre video featuring Puss In Boots as a guest on the YouTube interview show Hot Ones to promote the release of Puss In Boots: The Last Wish. The film is connected to Shrek 5, and it appears the studio’s trying to get the word out to audiences through unusual means, by having its animated protagonist eat progressively spicy wings. Check out the entire episode below:
Why The Puss In Boots 2 Reviews Have Been So Positive
Puss In Boots: The Last Wish reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, with many critics asking if it’s too late for a Shrek 5 in the same style as the Puss In Boots sequel. As it currently stands, Puss In Boots: The Last Wish has a 75 score on Metacritic, indicating generally favorable reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has achieved major percentages, with a 97% on the Tomatometer coming from critics and an even bigger 98% in verified audience score. There’s a decent chance the positive word-of-mouth sees Puss In Boots: The Last Wish exceed the original’s $555 million at the box office.
There are a number of factors that contribute to the positive reviews, with one of the most important being Puss in Boots: The Last Wish‘s animation style. The difference in animation from the Shrek franchise and the first Puss In Boots to this new sequel is striking. The movie’s seamless blend of 2D and 3D animation, as well as different frame rates, recalls the amazing work of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Director Joel Crawford revealed in an interview that the animation’s goal was “to get back to the artist and reduce the imprint of the computer.” Puss In Boots: The Last Wish arrives in theaters six months before the Spider-Verse sequel, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, with both movies poised to push Hollywood’s animation in an interesting direction.
Another factor to Puss In Boots: The Last Wish’s early success is the movie’s emotional story. Also, the new Puss In Boots reportedly sets up Shrek 5 – Puss In Boots: The Last Wish takes place after the events of the first film and sometime after 2010’s Shrek Forever After, with Puss discovering he’s on the last of his nine lives. Following that reveal, he embarks on an epic quest to find the mythical Last Wish and reclaim his nine lives. The movie’s portrayal of Puss’ examination of his own mortality has been a resounding success with critics, and should prove a real tearjerker with audiences when Puss In Boots: The Last Wish arrives in theaters.
