About Puss in Boots: The Last Wish

For the first time in more than a decade, DreamWorks Animation presents a new adventure in the Shrek universe as daring outlaw Puss in Boots discovers that his passion for peril and disregard for safety have taken their toll.

Puss has burned through eight of his nine lives, though he lost count along the way. Getting those lives back will send Puss in Boots on his grandest quest yet. 

Academy Award® nominee Antonio Banderas returns as the voice of the notorious PiB as he embarks on an epic journey into the Black Forest to find the mythical Wishing Star and restore his lost lives.

But with only one life left, Puss will have to humble himself and ask for help from his former partner and nemesis: the captivating Kitty Softpaws (Oscar® nominee Salma Hayek Pinault). 

In their quest, Puss and Kitty will be aided—against their better judgment—by a ratty, chatty, relentlessly cheerful mutt, Perrito (Harvey Guillén, What We Do in the Shadows).

Together, our trio of heroes will have to stay one step ahead of Goldi (Oscar® nominee Florence Pugh, Black Widow) and the Three Bears Crime Family, Jack Horner (Emmy winner John Mulaney, Big Mouth) and terrifying bounty hunter, the big, bad Wolf (Wagner Moura, Narcos).

Violence and Gore: Is Puss in Boots: The Last Wish Too Scary For Kids Under 8?

There are some surprisingly intense moments in this movie.

The main villain is a wolf and he plays the Big Bad Wolf in an intense way! His weapons are scythes and they are used to great chilling effect.

Nothing too scary for most kids 8 and up, however.

There are hatchets, crossbows, and other medieval-type weapons are used as well as sword and fist fights. Some blood is drawn but it is not a particularly gory movie.

Characters are seen dying and the story of their deaths is given.

A few times murdering is tossed around like it’s no big deal.

Is Puss In Boots: The Last Wish Ok For Kids: Mature Topics

Characters are seen drinking milk to intoxication.

There is a love story involved as well.

A terrible story is told for laughs about an unwanted dog who doesn’t realize they are unwanted, but its fairly graphic in the ways the family tried to dispose of him.

There is potty humor (cats using litter boxes is seen as degrading) and one instance where a man loses his pants and we see his frilly pantaloon underwear.

One character experiences multiple panic attacks and a discussion of therapy happens.

Age Rating of Puss In Boots The Last Wish: What Ages Can Really Watch This One?

So what ages are appropriate to watch Puss in Boots: The Last Wish?

As always, you know your child best.

Parents Guide: Is Puss In Boots The Last Wish Appropriate For Kids Under 8?

If your family has seen the previous Puss in Boots or even Shrek movies, we’d say this one lines up with those movies.

It’s a little long, however, at 1 hour 42 minutes, which could make it hard for a wiggly PreK kiddo to sit through.

We think kids aged 6 and up (basically, kindergarten aged) should be ok in most instances, but if your child scares easily with fairy tales, stick to 8-10 for this one.

took my little one kenzie to see this film. Let's just say we will not be coming back for the next one! Where do I even start? This movie is treacherous for all age's! I wouldn't show this to a hardened war criminal... This movie is downright disturbing. My daughter learned the term "butt nugget" from this movie and now she won't stop saying it! I mean come on people! This movie throws around murder and torture like it's not big deal! <:(( some thing's in this movie are too bad for me to even type out on this brand new laptop that my husband bought me this Christmas. 0/10 horrible.

@Shelby Smith, 1, nice that you got a new laptop. 2. This movie deals with multiple themes. I wouldn't say they are too mature, but they are definitely themes that older people do deal with. Let me start with the premise. Puss in Boots comes to terms with his morality, something I believe all children need to learn. What makes the movie even better, is that it shows children, that heroes aren't invicible and even the best shows fear. It probably had the best depiction of a panic attack I've seen in most media. It discusses that arrogance is ones downfall, and how we need to rely on each other. As far as children learning new terms, yeah that part might not be great, but they do learn them eventually, and what's best now is tell them that those terms aren't good for us to use. The movie doesn't throw around murder and torture, Jack Horner is treated as a terrible person for the things he does, and with Puss' previous lives, it throws it around as 'no big deal'. Which is exactly why the Wolf, Death, comes after him. He is tired that Puss hasn't held his lives dear. Our lives aren't worth anything unless we treasure it. Which is something I had to learn. A hardened war criminal probably would have just laughed at all the death, so I don't think that it would bother them. Overall, the movie was great. It was corny at times, and the ending was fluff. I'll keep the animation out of it, cause that's in another league of its own. I could go on, however, I best believe the movie is best to experience it yourself. The movie was a 10/10 for me. P.S My family loved it. And if you think its too mature, you can always wait a few years to see it if you want.
