The American computer-animated adventure-comedy film “Puss in Boots” is a real treat for everyone. Produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Paramount Pictures the film is one of a kind for everyone. The film was directed by Chris Miller and it really is a gem.
Let’s get into some details!
Puss in Boots 2: When is the release happening?
In 2012, executive producer Guillermo del Toro mentioned that they had already done a couple of screenplay drafts for a Puss in Boots 2. When we hear how director Chris Miller wants to take Puss on an adventure to exotic. By April 2014, Antonio Banderas, the voice of Puss in the movie, talked of the film in the development phase. The title Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives and 40 Thieves came by June 2014.
Announcements were made then that the initial release date of the movie was going to be November 2018 and then pushed back to 21st December 2018. However, by January 2015, the second part of the movie was removed from the release scheduled due to corporate restructuring and DreamWorks Animation’s new policy that allowed them to release only two movies in one year. Soon the script was put under reconstruction.
As for now, mixed rumours of the movie cancellation and the movie being in development are surfacing, but we can’t be sure of anything.
