Puss In Boots The Last Wish UK release date and age rating certificate latest

The cutest eyes in cartoon world will be back later this year with the upcoming Puss In Boots The Last Wish UK release date on its way (details below). To give you a bit more information about what to expect, here’s what we know so far about the story, cast, age rating and runtime, along with our parents guide notes.


The story picks up with Puss and his wayward boots as he continues to throw caution to the wind in a bid to be the most heroic cat in history. His devil-may-care attitude gets a big kick in the tail when he gets himself killed yet again and his doctor informs him that it was his eighth life down the kitty litter tray, so he’s only got the last of his nine left to live.

Instead of just curling up and accepting his fate he decides to set out on a perilous journey to find a mythical wishing star in a bid to restore his tally back to nine. He’ll have to make it through to the heart of the Black Forest to get it, so his last life is going to be put to the test in a big way with Goldilocks and the Three Bears Crime Family, “Big” Jack Horner and The Big Bad Wolf all out to get him.


As you might expect, Antonio Banderas (Uncharted film) leads the Puss in Boots The Last Wish cast as the titular character and he’ll have a little support along the way from Kitty Soft Paws, played by Selma Hayek (Eternals). Harvey Guillén (The Internship) plays Perro the dog, Florence Pugh (Hawkeye, Black Widow) plays Goldilocks, John Mulaney (Spider-Man Into The Spiderverse) plays Jack, and Wagner Maura (Elysium) plays the bounty hunter wolf.

The cast also includes Olivia Coleman (Murder on the Orient Express), Ray Winston (Black Widow), Samson Kayo, Anthony Mendez and Da’Vine Joy Randolph (The Lost City).

Puss In Boots The Last Wish UK release date

The arrival of the trailer has confirmed the Puss in Boots The Last Wish UK release date to be Friday the 23rd September 2022, so it’s set to be a very daring last day of summer. It’ll be out a fairly hefty 11 years after the previous installment in the story in 2011, although the character first made its debut in Shrek 2 in 2004, so he’s really clocking up the years now.

It’s still early days in terms of timings, but as things stand there are no other films due out on the same date. This is bound to change as we get closer to the release, but it puts Puss in Boots 2 in a good position to do well at the box office. It’ll also be the last animated film of the summer, and with such a long gap between it and the previous film it could be a popular family film.

It looks like it’s going to be out in North America on the same date, but we’ll keep an eye on things in terms of changing schedules and update things here if there are any changes between now and then. Hopefully, this year we won’t have as much disruption as we have over the last two years with the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

With the September 2022 big screen arrival, it should then go on to get a DVD, Blu-ray and digital release date in both the UK and North America in time for Christmas. In the very least there is bound to be a Home Premier early access rental int eh run-up to the holiday period.

Age rating and parents guide

The official Puss in Boots The Last Wish UK age rating will be confirmed by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) a few weeks ahead of the release date, but we can look at the previous film as a guide. It was given a U certificate back in 2011 and looking at the trailer for the 2nd film it could go a similar way. A PG is an outside possibility too, but that will depend a lot on the level of Big Bad Wolf tail ticking that goes on.

In North America, the first film was given a PG certification, so it’s possible that this could well be the primary rating overall. It was a similar case for Shrek 2, which was rated U in the UK and PG in the UK, so this should act as a pretty good indicator for the sequel.

From a parents guide point of view, there will clearly be a fair amount of feline swordplay, but this will have an animated style to it. However, with a little more emphasis on life and death, there could be a slight uptick in terms of peril between the two films. Looking at the trailer, there could be a few tongue in cheek jokes along the way too, but that was the case with the first film too, and that still picked up the U certificate in the UK.

We’ll update you with more details on the film as they get confirmed. You can also check out our movie news section to keep tabs on the latest upcoming films, or visit the official website at https://dreamworks.com/movies/puss-in-boots-the-last-wish.


As with the age rating, the runtime for Puss in Boots The Last Wish will be announced as we get closer to release date, but the first film clocked in at 1 hour and 30 minutes. This is the norm for animated films, so should help you in terms of what to expect from the sequel.
