It will bring back the smooth feline in a new adventure, following the commercial success of the 2011 Shrek spin-off.
Currently, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish is the only wide release on that date, and Universal had the weekend already reserved for an untitled event film.

‘Puss in Boots 2’ Trailer
Trailer is not available yet. Sorry for this. With a September 2022 release date we can get a trailer in early 2022.
We’ll update this as soon as there’s any official confirmation about the trailer.
In June 2014, the movie was titled Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives & 40 Thieves. In August 2020, the name Puss in Boots: The Last Wish had been trademarked by DreamWorks, revealing the new title of the sequel.
The first Puss in Boots was a commercial success, with an impressive international box office of $554 million, making a sequel almost mandatory for DreamWorks.
However, it’s been 10 years already, and in the meantime, a sequel movie for Puss in Boots was announced and shelved, and rumors of reboots both for Puss in Boots and Shrek began to swirl.
It’ll be the longest wait for a Dreamworks Animation sequel, exceeding the 7 year gap between The Croods (2013) and The Croods A New Age (2020).
The last time we heard about Puss in Boots 2, still without an official name, a different director and a different producer was attached to the project. But In March 2021, they were replaced.
So, these are the major information about the film. It is coming out on September 23, 2022, in the United States.
