It was perhaps inevitable that the scene-stealing, sword-wielding, heartbreaking cat introduced in 2004’s Shrek 2 would one day star in his own movie. Now, courtesy of DreamWorks Animation, comes our first taste of that solo outing in the form of a teaser for Puss in Boots. As a bonus, the studio has also released the first poster.
Directed by Chris Miller (Shrek the Third), the 3D animated adventure is a prequel that again stars Antonio Banderas (of course) as the swashbuckling feline. Here’s the official synopsis:
Puss In Boots – one of the most beloved characters of the Shrek universe – tells the hilarious and courageous (daring, bold, brave) tale of Puss’s (Antonio Banderas) early adventures as he teams with mastermind Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) and the street-savvy Kitty (Salma Hayek) to steal the famed Goose that lays the Golden Eggs.
Puss in Boots opens on Nov. 4. Check out the teaser below, or visit iTunes to watch it in high resolution.
