At the foot of the Christmas tree, lovers of animated productions will be able to discover the second opus of the adventures of Puss in Boots.
It’s the big shake-up in the Dreamworks calendar. The studio takes advantage of the delay taken by mario to step into the breach. The latter will not finally arrive before 2023, its release date, set for December, is therefore borrowed by another character from an equally iconic license: Puss in Boots.
The news comes from Deadlinewhich explains that the release of the feature film called The Last Quest was postponed for a few months. Initially scheduled for next October, it will finally hit our screens on December 21, 2022.
A rather profitable release date for the animation studios, which had managed to garner no less than $162.6 million at the box office with All on Stage 2. It must be said that most of the children are on vacation at this time, and that is the target audience for this kind of production. It’s also one of the most important times of the year for exhibitors of all genres.
In December 2022, it will be the rat race between the different licenses. At Disney, it’s Avatar 2 which should be released around this time. A highly anticipated sequel to the highest-grossing film in cinema history. At Warner Bros, we can discover Shazam! Fury of Godsa new opus in the adventures of Billy Batson and his superheroic alter-ego.
9 lives or almost…
the Puss in Boots 2 arrives more than ten years after the first part. As a reminder, the plot followed the character introduced in the second Shrek. A spin-off that transported us several years before his meeting with the famous green ogre. The legendary feline, no less fearsome, has been embarked on a journey full of twists and turns with the charming and cunning Kitty Pettes de Velours and Humpty Alexandre Dumpty, the mastermind of the operation.
In The Last Quest, we find him having exhausted eight of his nine lives. In order to get back on his feet, our hairy hero literally embarks on the quest of his life. He embarks on an epic adventure to the edge of the Black Forest to unearth the mythical Star of the Last Wish, the only one likely to restore his lost lives.
